How .22LR Ammo is Made

Wonder about the .22LR shortage? Well it isnt the ammo manufacturers. Blame your greedy neighbors. They are the ones hoarding rimfire. Some of them are even flipping them and selling bricks for ridiculous amounts. We are to blame for the price increase. If the demand goes down, supply will come back up.

According to the video, CCI makes 4 million rounds a day. Now that sounds like a lot. But one pallet is 250k rounds. That means they make 16 pallets a day of rimfire. That is not a lot actually. 16 pallets can easily be used up just resupplying Cabelas or Big Bass Pro. Not even sure if 16 pallets is enough for those huge stores. Then you add in Walmart. It eats up fast.
