Round when SHTF
 
What type of ammo are you guys stocking up for shtf? Fmj, hollow points, ect?

Whatever is cheap to stack deep and fits my rifles.
So mostly FMJ.
I have standardized on 5.56 and have a sufficiency in stock.

Different ammos doing different things all have a use and are adviseable.
5.56 HP is not disallowed, to civillians.
M855 is particularly decent in many circumstances.
M193 is light, fast, and very effective for its size.
It's all good (though barrel twist influences bullet weights to me).

Lets say you had to protect your proprety from raiders, what type of rifle ammo would you use in a rifle (such as a 308) fmj or hp?

FMJ will be cheaper to buy as thats the military standard and much more common.
HP might do more damage but in a 308 thats probably academic :)

I agree with you, I just wanted to see what your opinions were. Obviously a well placed shot with a rifle will do the job no matter what the bullet is

Will you guys get real. There is no such thing as a SHTF. If you want to become criminals and pretend there will be such a thing, fine; but stay out of my neighborhood. I'll play cowboys instead. Or, I might even be a commando when I grow up.:rolleyes:

Criminals??! We would most likely be the ones defending your neighborhood and community from criminals! we dont pretend, we just dont know what the future is going to be like. We are people that rather be prepared for shtf, people that want to keep our families safe, rather then wishing we were prepared. stop watching the media nobody want's to be a wannabe rambo or commando. Grow up and look around, the world will not be amazing forever...

I can't imagine any scenario that I couldn't handle with 5.56 M193 ball, and 9MM 115 grain +P+ JHP.

(:p But I keep a handful of M855 ball around just in case:p)

cottontop 12-11-2012 03:27 AM

no such thing
