Recently we were able to get a couple of cases of S&B in, which was the first .25ACP that we've had in almost a year. But its cost was quite a bit more than when we last had it. We used to sell a 50ct box for around $16/per. Now its sell price is $25 just to reasonably cover our higher cost from the distributor that we got it from. Still it didn't take very long to sell through all of it.

For a good while ( things have gotten better supply wise) perhaps a year or so in my area, about the only calibers you could find on the shelf in pistol ammo at shops were 25 auto and 32 auto along with 32 long revolver

I once read an article that surmised most .25 autos were never fired or if they were, on a few shots to prove function. Its why many are found after someone dies with a full box of ammo, less the ones in the magazine.
We moved 11 years ago and my younger son recently found my "pengun" in some stuff. He brought it to me. I'd long ago sold off my 2 .25s and gave up the ammo too. I had to beg my gunshow buddy for a few rounds. Not a problem for him, he's dumping useless stuff just like I am.
Maybe the demise of the "ring of fire" companies has crushed the demand for the ammo.
Unhappy ammo seeker
