175.00 dollars for a single 500 round brick!!! I have never seen that kind of crazy in my life. Not even sandy hook!
High end match ammo is regularly priced above that.
But for plinking ammo? A bit high

It was the Remington thunderbolt. I mean come on. That is crazy. Some idiot will pay though and then it will be 200.00

Hey, that’s a bargain compared to what the idiots are paying for 9mm.
Hope all this stuff settled back down in a couple years.

I am in pretty good shape ammo wise including 22LR but then early last fall after over a decade of trying to get my wife interested in shooting she suddenly decides to try it an loves it. She primarily shoots our Browning Buckmark.
So I decide I better get some more 22LR with her shooting too now. LGS had pretty good stock level with limit on a brick per day. I was able to pick up a decent amount in the 5-6 cents a round range. Then their supply dried up just before the election and prices went up. I was able to get 2K from Midway on Augilla SE 38 gr for 8 cents a round in late December. Since then 22LR has been very slim pickings for anything reasonably priced and most
online sellers are selling it for crazy prices as OP mentioned.
Early last December I stopped at local Walmart because I was driving right by and was pleasantly surprised they had Winchester Super-X 40 grain in the red plastic box of 100 for 8.5 cents a round and bought ten of them. I have stopped by a few times since then and nothing other than CCI CB caps but will continue to stop in while I am driving by. At very least I get a couple Snicker bars at the self check out on the way out.

and his gallant stroll
I thought and said the same thing back in 2009, but it never really did. People were hoarding ammo. I figured that with the state of the economy, there were going to be deals to be had when people realized they couldn't feed their families with the cases of ammo they purchased instead of food. I was wrong and the deals never materialized. Now, with all of the first time gun owners who are in the mix, I don't think things will stabilize and as whispers of new gun laws start to spread the prices will only increase.
Too bad I was a poor grad student 15 years ago when 115gr Federal American Eagle was only $0.10-$0.12 per round. If only I had the means and foresight then, I could be sitting on quite the retirement nest egg!
A buddy in Dallas called today and said a show he attended had vendors who WERE SELLING .22LR bricks for .30 per round. That's $150 per brick! I accused him of pulling my leg.
Later, another friend called and said he had been to Louisiana and the Beaumont area at 2 shows today and said he couldn't believe what he saw. First, there was not a lot of ammo to be had. But .243 and 30-30 were going for $4 per round. I asked him about 22LR. He said $125 per brick. Crazy.
You know it's a sad time when .22 is more expensive than 9mm was a year ago. A friend was asking me where to find 9mm. I told him to check out GB, but also advised him to have a stiff drink and a box of Scotties tissues ready.
Went to a gun show last weekend. Garden variety plinking ammo was $100 a brick.
I just bought some high end match ammo ( eley) for less than that.
If I am going to spend $75+ bucks for a brick it might as well be the good stuff.
Friend messaged me earlier today. Local cal ranch had aguila $3 per box limit one box per customer!
Cal ranch and wal mart in my area is hit and miss about 1 trip out of 4 they have some in stock at pre panic price.
Winchester and Remington quality is pretty bad, but even I relented and bought a couple boxes of the red 100 round plastic Winchester packs
You consider Winchester Super-X to be bad? I thought most ppl consider it comparable to Mini-Mag.
Lately I've seen 100rd boxes of Remington Golden Bullet priced the same as Mini-Mag. There's no question which one I'd select.
