TFB Weekly Web Deals 67: No Ammo? Time to Buy Magazines!

Welcome to TFB Weekly Web Deals 67! October is 3/4 of the way over and fall is in full swing up here in the Pacific Northwest. While this means less time to shoot during the daylight hours, this does mean that it’s almost that time of year when getting out to shoot with night vision on is becoming much less of a hassle. However, as we talked about last week, it looks like there has been another bum rush on 5.56/.223 ammunition which has led to most of the more affordable training ammunition drying up. As of writing, the average price for any type of 5.56 or .223 ammunition seems to be sitting at about 20-25 cents more per round than just a week ago. Most of what is left on sites like Palmetto State Armory, Primary Arms, Natchez Shooters Supply, and other online retailers, is mostly heaver grain match ammunition or 62-grain green tip (M855). My go-to pistol ammunition for this year AAC 124gr 9mm, is no longer in stock in individual boxes but can be purchased as a package deal with a Plano Ammunition can for about $0.30 per round meaning 9mm pricing hasn’t been affected quite as much as 5.56 ammunition. I’ll post the few deals like that that I’ve found but for this week, I think we’ll mostly be able to find deals on other things besides ammunition – here’s hoping that changes soon! In any case, if you’re not buying your regular order of ammo, why not just buy more magazines!

The Rimfire Report: Comparing 22LR and 22WMR

Hello and welcome to another edition of The Rimfire Report! This ongoing series is about the rimfire firearm world and its many different types of guns, sports, history, and ammunition types. Last week we brought in TFB writer and gunsmith extraordinaire Sam S to talk about fixing his Dad’s old Marlin Model 60 – probably one of the most ubiquitous semi-auto rimfire rifles alongside the Ruger 10/22. My recent experiences with the new Ruger Super Wrangler have brought my mind back to rimfire ammunition comparisons. When it comes to rimfire cartridges, the .22 Long Rifle (22LR) and .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (22WMR) are two of the most popular choices among hunters, plinkers, and target shooters. Both cartridges have unique strengths and weaknesses, and choosing between them largely depends on your intended use. But is there any specific reason to use one over the other? Today, we will be comparing 22LR and 22WMR, discussing their pros and cons, use cases, and which one might be the best choice for your shooting needs.
