    Just tallied up what I have, just wondering what everyone else has stockpiled.

    7.62x54 - 8; yes I need more
    .40 - 54; I'm selling the gun so I haven't bought new ammo
    .45 - 320; When all else fails
    12 gauge - 105
    .38 - 200
    .223 - 120; I need more
    .480 - 20; Random because I don't even have a .480

    Total: 827 rounds; Not bad but I could use more .223, 7.62x54, and .45

    hehe. I haven't bought .22 for about 3 months. I stocked up over a 5 month period when I got my gsg-5. Good thing too... $17 for federal bulk now-a-days is a no-no!

    But I've put 700 rounds through my Kimber in the last two months practicing. I'm about to buy some ammo for a gun caliber I don't even own yet. That's how you convince the wifey :laugh:

    If I get more I'm going to use a different storage solution. It's not sagging much yet. :)

    This is what I have on hand currently...
    45 - 400
    9 - 400
    38spl - 500
    223 - 800
    17HMR- 350
    12G - 200
    20G - 200
    22LR -150

    What I am really lacking is reloading supplies... I'm down to just over 700 projectles for the 45, ~400 for the 38spl, 1K for the 223 and my primer stock is about the same!

    I can't seem to find and 22lr here in So. Oregon or at least when I have any spending money!

    Just as a rule of thumb, no less than 500 pistol in any caliber, and 1K in any rifle.

    Other than that, nunneryerbiddness!

    I feel naked here.
    I have about
    500 rds 40 cal
    300 rds 9mm
    30 rds 30-06, which I can't find anywhere!
    I have enough to blast my way out of my house into my car and knock down enough deer to eat for a couple months.
    But never enough. I would like to double my handgun ammo, and get another 200 rds of 30-06 and I will be happy. If the shtf I don't want to hold up in my house, I want to get out of dodge and build a cabin in the middle of freakin nowhere. Let everyone us kill each other.

    I just need some time to assemble...

    Oh and a few hundred vmax bullets for the .223.

    so with all this ammo pictured, do we still have enough..

    Think 1k max was in the air many moons ago.. so 1k x each gun.. = humm (you do the math) and for those who shoot often, and alot, how about , just maybe, 5k reloading components for each gun..

    now that's some money to invest.
