There's about 5 BILLION 22lr alone, made every year. Including target and hunting loads, 12 gauge isn't even in the top five calibers/gauges made per year.Excuse me but I have to call BS that clay target ammo is the bottom of the market. How many others shot at millions of targets last week. Did hunters kill millions of live birds. Did rifle and pistol shooters shoot millions of rounds at what? How many rounds do you shoot in a rifle/pistol tournament 400/500? Hell clay target shooters shoot 300 to 500 a day for 5 days. If back orders have to be filled, whose back orders? Don’t you think some of those back order should be showing up in the market or are they setting in some warehouse just waiting, for what I don’t know.
Over 56 million targets thrown in 2019, everyone needed one shell so tell me we are the small market of all the users.
Seems to me there is already plenty of consumer distrust in the ammo manufacturing story....they've been telling us over and over they are making ammo.....none to be found.So stealing and leaking private company information, and subsequently eroding consumer trust in the industry is the answer? And then what, what does it solve? It certainly won't make ammo more available.
Unfortunately for us here in the Tampa area of FL, the resellers scoop up everything as soon as it shows up. Have only found some 20 gauge Winchester Universal promo junk available, and that was only 4 of the 4 packs. I keep trying and maybe I will get lucky, but so far it is about as difficult as picking the winning Lotto numbers.Walmart here last week had several boxes of STS 1145 8 and 71/2 last Sunday. Also had Winchester Super Handicaps.
Still same price $7.87/ box.
Didn’t last long.
The 1300 Winchester 11/8 Sporting was $8.78/ box.
Everyone shoots .22 and it’s still the cheapest way to have fun. I don’t have a hard time believing 5 billion a year. When my kids were still home we’d go through a box of 500 on a Sunday afternoon.You throw large numbers around. Where are these 5 billion 22’s shot?
