Hopefully sometime in the near future we will be able to go to “one” distributor and order ALL the ammo we “need”. Just thinking out loud here……….

I still have a 5,000 rd. case of Winchester Wildcat I bought at K-Mart quite a few years back. $79.00 + $4.74 tax. The lady at K-Mart told me there was a limit, so we checked the ad, and there was no limit, so I bought 15,000 rds. She got a little upset with me. I still remember when it was less than 59 cents for 50. We will never see those days again.   Big Larry

That’s when a dollar was worth a dollar…….. 75 cents for a pack of smokes, 10 cent soda pops or candy bars. I wasn’t old enough to have a job then but I do remember the prices.LaughIf the old man gave you a quarter you were styling!

I clearly remember the days in my youth (late 1960s) when my dad would give me a $5 bill, and send me down to the local Coast-to-Coast store on my bicycle (Seaside Oregon) and buy a 500 round brick of 22 LR ammo, and I had enough change to buy a Hot-dog and Root Beer float at the A&W restaurant on the way home. The full brick cost $3.50! If I had a time machine I would go back to those days in an instant!!

Well, if you’d really like to wallow in ’60s nostalgia, look at the milsurp guns advertised in the back pages of any ’60s Rifleman!  Every variant of Mauser, Enfield, Jap, etc., selling in the $20-30 range, if not less, and though I was still in HS, I found money enough to buy probably about a dozen different ones.  What I most wanted, however, was a Boys anti-tank rifle, and I don’t know why I didn’t order one, except that no ammo was available.

Probably a good thing……….those beasts killed on both ends!  I’ve read more than one account of broken collar bones after firing one.

We didn’t have a coast to coast, just a Gambles and the same ammo Larry mentioned at the same price. I gave up lots of lunch money for those 59 cent Wildcats in the white box. What kind of funny looks do you think a kid would get today if he walked in, threw his pocket change on the counter asking for ammo? Probably be three black Suburbans with tinted windows skidding up to the door……….

I bought at least 15,000 rounds of 22 LR at that Coast-to-Coast hardware store between 1968 – 1971.  My dad got paid every Wednesday, and he would send me down to the local Coast-to-Coast hardware store that same afternoon to purchase a brick, which we would go promptly shoot up that same afternoon.  Santa gave me a brand new Ithaca Model 49 for Christmas in 1967, and over the next several years, I shot more than 40,000 rounds through it… I still own that old single shot .22Smile

In my youth, my Dad bought me a Rem. 513T in hopes of me becoming a shooting champion at the age of 13. Never had to buy ammo as my Dad was one of the top shooters on the USMC Shooting Team. We had tons of ammo, so much so, he gave most of it away to neighbors. We also had a good supply of US GI 30 caliber for my M1903 Springfield he had bought for my 12th birthday. Dad reloaded his civilian match 45’s on a Marine owned Star press.

In later years, when I made trips to my Mom and Dads place in San Diego, he would have at least 5,000 rounds of Federal 22 to take back to Utah. I amassed about 40,000 rds, before I started to give some to my kids and friends. I still have close to 30,000 rds. of every kind and brand of 22 LR and some Longs and Shorts too. Although I have several boys model Winchesters in 22 Extra Long, the ammo has eluded me. Auction prices for a box go well over $700 to $1000 for a box of 50. Anyone have some for sale or trade?    Big Larry

Yes, that old Model 49 was a very strong influence during my formative years, but it was not the first single shot that I shot.  My dad started me out on my shooting career (taught me to shoot) with an old high-all that had been rebarreled and chambered for the 22 Hornet.  It had a single set trigger that was set very light, and during the summer that I turned 5-years old, he taught me how to shoot the heads off of the abundant cottontail rabbit population in the area I grew up in.  This will make some of you cringe, but the barrel he used for that old high-wall was originally a Model 52 bull barrel, shortened to 24.5 inches, and reamed to shoot the 22 Hornet.  Those 45-gr hollow points were deadly on rabbits, grouse, and the occasional coyote!  I have an extreme affinity for the 22 Hornet, and the Model 1885.  That old Model 49 also bagged a lot of varmints & vermin.

Depending how he cut the chamber, it’s a high pressure situation pushing .224 dia. bullets down a .221 bore dia. I have done it with WRF’s using a 22 mag. reamer in a 221 bore but I give the chamber a little free bore, kind of like what Weatherby does to not create such a pressure spike. Glad it worked out for you, that should of been a very accurate little combo.

Most of the early Hornets, before factory rifles became available, began life as .22LRs, typically converted M1922 Springfields, using however .223″ bullets originally.
