It has me totally stumped as well. One explanation I've seen was preppers were buying it all. As good or better than most other hypotheses I've heard, though wouldn't preperrs have been prepared way before Sandy Hook took place? After all, we're talking about folks who are really big on being prepared well in advance.

I suppose the best I've heard is that it's due to feared record keeping on sales over 1,000 rounds, which would be most .22LR purchases. Two bulk packs would be enough to put you on a watch list of potential domestic terrorists.

It was me. I walked by the ammo shelf and saw two 100 round boxes of Federal 22LR. I bought them both. I am full of regret.

hardly ever shoot .22, it just doesn't do it for me like the larger calibers. A .22 is great for outdoor plinking.
Oh man, .22LR is IT for good 'practice' and lots of it. I like my Big Bore revolvers a lot, but nothing like spending the afternoon running through a bulk box in my Single-Six (or other .22 revolvers) at the range. Then pick up a big bore and shoot it for a while, then back to the .22. I find I shoot my Big Bore revolvers better after all the 'cheap' practice I get with the small cartridge. Can't beat it! Shooting from the hip at cans, or 12g hulls, instinctive shooting, etc... just good solid practice with the cheap .22!!!!

I'm buying up a little at a time because an empty gun is a paperweight...

I got two boxes of .38 and two of .38 special at Academy, here in Houston and was surprised to find it. I'm currently only shooting .22lr, I just wanted to make sure I had the larger caliber if/when needed. I also bought the last box of .9mm they had. The gun ranges are limiting sales to one box per person.
