Can't decide whether I should sell my 22lr shells or not. I have around 10,000 shells which I can make a lot of money from but if I sell them & run short for myself, then I'll end up paying high prices for more. Any money I make, will be spent for more.
What's your opinion, what would you do? Do you think the prices will drop again to what they were? I sure hope so!

I would keep what you have. The decrease in price that may or may not come is minimal at best.

Don't mess with old guys. they are too old to fight, too fat to run, so their only choice is to kill you.

Keep enough to use, sell the rest. These prices will not last and will come down as soon as the hoarders get their fill. Its crazy, and I made enough off of mine already to double my purchases soon.

You would be a fool not to sell 1/2 of stash at current pricesit will be back on the shelf by summer time,
then you will really kick yourself in the ASS.

IMO... Guns ought to come down in price... Maybe not where they were a few months ago...
But less than they are now...
Reason is guns are just collectibles without ammo to shoot.
And many people do not reload.

Ammo on the other hand will always have a market as long as guns are still in the hands of the people.

Ammo will come down as well... But, I doubt it will come down as far as guns will...
You can expect that ammo will retain some of the inflated cost of recent days.
Same holds true with powder, primer, and bullet.
The only reason these would come down would be a glutenous market...
Enough so that gun owners have what they believe to be 'enough'...

But as you have realized... Many of the ammo owners have sold off to make cash.
And so expect to buy more 'when it comes down'...
The glutenous market won't happen unless manufactures ramp up production severely...
And for this to happen requires increased cost of production with expectations of increased sales...
Something manufacturers Do NOT do in times of panic buying...

Don't expect ammo prices to come down to pre-panic levels... Supply and Demand...

One more thing will contribute to ammo pricing...

The market base for ammo buying has definitely increased... possibly twofold.

With the number of gun owners increasing from current panic buying...
There are more gun owners today than a month ago...
And gun owners want ammo to shoot in their newly acquired guns.
Ammo manufacturers still won't ramp up production just on account of panic buying...
... so you can expect supply not to meet demand for a while.

Once ammo manufacturers see demand as maintaining levels...
Production will ramp up and prices will fall a bit... But not back to pre-panic days.

It looks like you could sell the ones that don't shoot good in your guns and then later buy the good ones.

Dunno what to advise you but one thing I can tell you is the panic is getting worse at least down here Everything guns ammo doesn't even make it to the shelves it's straight out the door.

The indoor range I shoot at has a limit of 1 box of 22 while shooting and when you bring back the empty box you can buy one more. Range ammo can be bought 1 box at a time but you can buy out the door stuff at the front door. Keeping range ammo affordable for shooters and keeping their range open.
