22LR
30-06
410
16ga
12ga

38/357
45 auto

I'd like to add .223 and may go back to .40 S&W as well because of availiability.

I've been stocking food and making other preps for a number of years. Now I'm going back through things and making improvements and culling some stuff.

My ammo consolidation was initially forced by financial circumstances, but now I've gotten into it and am stocking fewer calibers. It gives me a more manageable objective.

Default Mine is very limited

Stalkingbear...I didn't see any consolidation in your list at all! Your home must be a Cabela's, only you actually have ammo in stock!

I have decided to keep to a very limited amount of calibers. I'm new at this, so I've only got 3 firearms.

9mm Luger
12-gauge

When I branch to the next caliber (my plan is .45 or .40), I'll purchase a full-size pistol, a carry pistol, and a pistol-caliber carbine in that same caliber. Eventually, I'll add .22lr and .223.

Simpler is better for me right now.

That IS after the consolidation! You notice that all but 1 of my rifles are the same diameter?
