Really KILLIN' IT on the 22 lately...
Nearly 3k rounds between LR and MAGNUM This Last Week! :eek:

1,000 CCI Mini-Mags (online)
700 CCI Std. Velocity (LGS#1)
500 Remi Std. Velocity (LGS#2)
200 Aguila High Velocity (LGS#3)
450 (checking brands) 22Mag (LGS#3)
2,850 Total 22 Rimfire in less than 7 days! :D:D:D

Also scored a big wad of Federal Aluminum Case 40 & 45 (100 each) and
150 rds of the Brass Case "Perfecta" 9mm also at Mall-Warts ;)

Why the big influx of Ammo?
I used the bathroom at a local gas station, which I never go to, cuz it was
close to my destination (no public restroom, afaik). I usually buy gum or
something small, for politeness. As I left w/o buying anything, a very sweet
young thing with purple hair said "have a great evening!" and then I realized I
broke my tradition. So I went back inside and bought a $5 scratch-off. I've
never bought more than 1 or 2 of these unless it was to waste the winnings
of a ticket :eek: So I bought ONE. Scratched the scan code, (not the play surface)
and had her scan it. $250!!! :dance:
So I gave her a NICE TIP since she is the reason I felt bad for not buying anything!
Then I hit 2 LGS and Mall-Warts and spread the wealth :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I'm very blessed! :thankyou: :llama:

Good for you. I haven't really been looking for ammo. I do need some more 06 and 9mm.
Steve, that "Perfecta" at Walmart is $1 a box more than the Federal Aluminum.
I decided to give it a "shot", so to speak! :D I should do a quick range report... :cool:

I just bought two boxes of the .223 55gr perfecta. 50rd boxes for right under 20 a piece. Hoping it's good.

I really like the Perfecta brand. I used it for months before i scored 3000 rounds of Speer Gold Dot hollow points foor $200. (Police department was gonna destroy them, and offered them to the officers. Had a cop buddy snag me an ammo crate full.)

22lr comes and goes in waves here. One day its so plentiful noone wants it, then it goes weeks without being seen. Of course its the weeks i want some that its usually gone.

Great deal 6.66 cents per round, that's cheaper than you can shoot .22LR now days. Looks like if they didn't want to use the ammo for service rounds they'd have used it for practice instead of destroying/selling it.

Definitely a once in a lifetime chance! If he was allowed more than one box id have bought it all for sure!

I've wondered about the perfecta as well. I usualy shoot the aluminum 40sw federals since they're around $15 per 50. The perfecta is a buck more but can save the brass, might have to try it next time. 22's are nowhere to be found around here, it's terrible.

Yeah .22 is still not showing up anywhere around here these days.

I did add to my stash of 9mm, but I roll my own so I guess that doesn't count.

Saw 500rd bulk packs of thunderbolt for 26.99 at my indoor range today. They got in a case. I'm sure it was gone by noon.

Got a few more rounds of the 9mm, guessing another 500 or so. This is what was left after the officers bought what they wanted. So my buddy was given the last of it. Bought him a case of beer and he gave it to me.
