And there lies the problem, everyone is buying it up as soon as they see it so it looks to be in short supply, according to one article i read that said, it's being produced at a slightly increased rate but it's being purchased at 1000 times the normal rate, the result appears to be a constant shortage. if buyers would buy what they need rather than try and create a personal stock pile the shelves would show a normal inventory. I think this is the only problem right now with 22 ammo.
