Default Wanted .22 lr for Boy Scout Camp.

Our local Scout camp is having trouble finding .22lr for the kids to use at camp. Usually go through 20,000 rounds a summer. Anyone know of a supplier that would have larger quantities, or perhaps have a large amount personally sell at your cost(come on its for kids). I know it's a long shot, but thought I would ask.

Yeah, they are still looking for 20 gauge shells as well. Talked t o a guy yesterday at my local gun shop, his daughter works for Federal, they stopped taking any new orders, and have so much on back order that they are running overtime on production and will take them two years to fill the orders they have on hand as of now.

Don't you need bolt action, single shot 22s per BSA rules?

I'd talk to National, or other councils, I know that most councils in the Lower Peninsula have been combined into one large council called Water and Woods.

Several summer camps are being combined and a few camps will NOT be opened this year. Seems like they'd have some extra guns and ammo kicking around.

I know for a fact that Chief Okemos Council's camp at West Branch will not be open for summer camp. Last year they had pallets of 22 and 12 guage ammo.

If they have they aren't offering it they have been asked.

Yes. I know it is hard to come by. Not everyone was caught with their pants down though.
