I promise it wasn't me! Target Sports has gone off the rails on pricing (just like most others TBH). SK Standard Plus for $11.00/box or SK Long Range Match for $18.99/box? Hard pass. A little hunting and patience will score you the same for $5.90 and $8.75 respectively. Heck, you can get Lapua Center-X or Eley Tenex for what Target Sports wants for SK Long Range...Looks like Target Sports has no .22 in stock now.
Yeah... A practice in PRS rimfire/NLR22/NRL22X is to deliver or ship your rifle to the Lapua Performance Center (Or Anschutz North America) and have them fixture the gun and test. Once they find a lot the rifle likes the owner orders a case of said ammo but even Lapua is cutting back on appointments as case quantities of ammo from the same lot are scarce right now.The shortage has changed the .22 BR game. Most of the people I shoot with would buy a box or two of different lot numbers or machine number Eley Match and test it. Then, they would load up on the ammo that worked well in their gun. Now, the scores have gone down overall or the guy sitting on a pile of ammo his gun likes is doing all the winning.
