OK without divulging too much info there are 2 calibers that I have questions about. suffice it to say that I am "covered" with regards to other calibers for other uses. 7.62 x 39 I just purchased a used SKS off this forum. Haven't fired a round through it yet and haven't purchased any ammo for it yet. What should I buy? Should I go with 124 grain? should I get FMJ or Hollow Points? The primary purpose of this rifle will be occasional plinking and a back-up rifle for preparedness purposes (anti-personnel). .30-06 I have 2 rifles in this caliber. I have an M1-Garand and also recently purchased a bolt action scoped hunting rifle. The purpose of the scoped bolt action is hunting larger game in a survival scenario, and as a back up anti-personnel rifle. The purpose of the Garand is basically plinking and competition (and a back-up back-up rifle in survival situation if it comes down to it). I purchased appropriate ammo for the garand from the CMP (I know that there are some kind of pressure problems with firing newer ammo through the Garands...?). anyways.....what should I store in this caliber? Should I just store the type that will fire in both rifles; or should I store 1 type for the Garand and 1 type for the bolt action? And what types would you recommend for my purposes. All of my shooting needs are based on preparedness and survival. (except a little competition which I use as a training ground to simulate stress).
