Not sure what you folk are facing in Alaska but you can't buy 22 rimfire ammo in the midwest! Wally World, Kmart, even the farm and home stores are wharehouse out. I bought 10 bricks a couple of months ago for $15/brick. Two weeks ago Thiesens Farm Supply had the same Winchester Super X's for $28/brick and they sold them out in a matter of hours even at those prices. The shelves are bare everywhere!
