$10 a freaking box? Remember less than a $1 a box in the not too distant past? Look like the good old days are gone forever.

    Match ammo by the 50 rnd box is usually more expensive than that.

    Not really. As NN pointed out... it's match ammo.
    I'm just here for snark.

    Glad I don't have any matches shooting a .22. Match / Snatch it's still a .22. :tooth:

    For the good stuff that is true but SK is usually considered entry level or a step above. Before this craze that brick could be picked up for $35-$40.

    One of my Kimber G82s shoots Wolf Match Target much better than I ever could. I was getting bricks of Wolf for $35-$45 till the craze hit. Last year I shot the Remington from the CMP store because that's all I had. Maybe I got lucky and had a good year or that 2 cent/shot ammo was better than I hoped for cause my average was 21 points higher than the year before.

    I found a brick of the Wolf a month ago for the cheap sum of $80. I just can't get myself to pay that much for Wolff.

    Since I have not been able to find 22LR match ammo except Ely @ more than I've been willing to pay. I considered $9.80 an acceptable price, especially considering I opened my last brick of match ammo not long ago.

    The price for Wolf match ammo before the current situation was $4.95-5.25 and Match Extra was about $7.50-8.50.
    I consider the SK to be at least equivalent to the Wolf Match. I have heard that the Wolf and SK are made in the same factory, but have no confirmation of same.
    I haven't seen Wolf (my Rem 513T's favorite) since I don't know when, so SK is an acceptable alternative.

    Two bricks are on the truck headed my way. I will let y'all know just how the Rem 513 likes it.

    Midway indicated that they may have some Winchester T22 match ammo in mid Sept. I've had a case on back order since January so certainly hope it shows up.

    Thanks, KP. I was 99% certain of this but always like to be for sure and for certain before making such statements.
