Woofster; The best explanation for the shortage of .22 ammo is directly tied to a rush on bullets after the latest Obama bullet scare. In effect, an added ten million new gun buyers ran out to the store and bought a .22 gun and as much ammo as they could get. That, along with the government run on .22 and the EPA shutting down an American producer of bullets over the last 110 years were also factors. The factories are turning it out 24/7 they are stuck in a paradigm. It's a huge investment to expand production and they're worried the "scare" will wear off once Obama goes away to build his "Little Red Book" library in Hawaii.
Little do they know about economics. The problem with this will be that today's $10,000 is tomorrows $100,000. Thanks to Obamanomics (Communism) money will be worth less than it is today. I predict one tenth.
