Why .22 Ammunition Will Be Hard to Find

Mr GunsNGear does a good job of explaining how the current shortage of 5.56mm/.223, .45 ACP and 9mm ammunition will affect the fuyure of .22LR.  He also explains the retooling process necessary to get .22LR produced, the lower profit margin, and the uncertainty the Corona Virus and coming election cycle will bring.

Youtuber Fortunecookie45LC makes a good case that 38 special can be reloaded during a shortage more economically than 22 can be had for and, loaded right, can occupy the 22lr place on the power spectrum. It might be time to revisit that video.
