Thread: .22 Short ammunition

    .22 Short ammunition

    Does anyone here know who has some .22 rimfire Shorts in stock?
    I have tried all my local lot and no-one has any. I was told the other day that the shortage is down to the fact the manufacturers are too busy making regular Long Rifle but I don't know how much truth there is in that.
    Thanks.

    Buy all you can find .22 shorts are no longer used in rapid fire pistol matches so manufactures will not be running batches very often
    there is little call for them for any other shooting, Robert.

    Give Norman Clarke at Rugby a call. He's worth the drive on the M6 and also Gunship Rugby in the same town. Have McAvoy at Standish none?

    No, McAvoys were my first call because I think Tim is one of the really good guys. However neither he nor Krank's had any. I am going to give the chap at Rugby a call as I will be near there soon.
    The only snag with sending ammunition in the post is the cost, makes a couple hundred rounds of rimfire quite expensive.

    CCI makes (well, supposedly makes) several different kinds of Shorts. Winchester still makes them, I believe. I like Shorts. I have two bricks of Aguila Match 22 Short that shoot pretty well. I used to have a Model 77/22 Ruger converted to 22 Short but I gave it to MarinePMI. My favorite short tosser is th eMarlin Model 39A. Mine holds 28 rounds of 22 Short shich makes the pigeons very nervous.~Muir
