    Went to Mississippi this week( am currently in Alabama visiting family) and had an opportunity to stop at various retail establishments in search of the mythical .22lr.

    My results are as follows.---Nothing.

    Nothing in three stops in Louisiana , 4 stops in Mississippi, and three in Alabama.

    I will try again as I head home across I-20( took I-10 coming here)

    Be glad we live in a state with a higher population than most as I am pretty sure the ammo manufacturers send more to us than to less populated states.

    bonus internetz to anyone who heard the theme to the south park spoof of Russell Crowe's " Fightin' Round the World" when they read the title.

    I stopped at Academy this morning (290/1960), no neckbearding there either. They even had a bunch of 22LR in stock.

    Last time I was there they wanted ~$5.50 for a box of 50. Guy told me that's the best price I'm going to find them at. Uh no thanks...

    That's insane. I paid $21.99 for a Winchester 525ct. brick, which I suppose isn't too bad these days. They had quite a few bricks too, and nobody milling around trying to get at 'em.

    That's less than 5 cents per round OTD. "not too bad"? It's actually quite GOOD!!;)

    In another thread, it was surmised that the 'odd/incremental' rounds over and above a -00 number are to allow for misfires and other defective rounds...e.g. a 333 or 325 round 'brick' rather than an even 300, 550 rnd vs 500, etc in bulk packaging. Any truth to this? I've wondered why the odd box totals in 22lr. I'll sleep better knowing ;)

    If that was the way manufacturers thought, we'd have 17.5 oz coffee packages instead of 12 oz

    I hear you. Made a trip to Springfield MO last year - stopped at at least four places - nada.
