Up in Syracuse, NY...

I have been shopping around. Walmart was out of .22LR, .223, .308, 5.56 NATO, and 7.62 NATO. Plenty of places have .308 in stock, but very few have 7.62 NATO or .22LR. Same thing with .223--only really odd loads are still on shelves. Otherwise, I was still able to find .308 steel case rounds at Sports Authority for $11 for 20 rounds. I don't know how well my rifle cycles with it, so I only bought 40 rounds of that. At Dick's Sporting Goods, I found .308 brass for $20 per 20 (steel for $14 per 20) and, at a local gun store, found surplus .308 brass for $45 per 50. Picked up a box of each brass too. Nobody had .22LR in boxes bigger than 50, and they wanted $4 for that--two to four times more expensive than normal. Even the .308 is pricey, but it's nearly unheard of to have no .22LR on shelves.
