I'm going to quote canebrake.

"One full magazine after the shooting stops."

If you're wondering how many rounds most reloders keep in stock, I'll tell you my rules.

I shoot 38 spl, 9mm Luger, 40 s&w, 45 acp, & 45 long colt in pistols. I keep 1000 rounds each loaded with capability of loading 200 more each without going out.

In rifles, I shoot 22 lr, 257 rob, 243 win, 25-06 rem, 270 win, 30-30 win, & 30-06 spr. For each of these I keep 100 rounds loaded with capability to load 200 more each.

As long as I have that quantity, I'm satisfied.


By the way, What's the federal limit for ammunition?

??????

Is there really a limit on how much ammo one person can accumulate?


I don't reload, so I'm really at the mercy of retailers and trying to find good deals, and when I do find a good deal I usually buy at least 1000 rds......that said I get a little "twitchy" if get get below a couple thousand rds of each caliber I use.

Enough? If you still have one round left when you die, you had enough.

Too much is never enough;)

I have enough rifle, pistol and shotgun ammo to shoot until I am 99.


Then I have to load more.:p

I was joking in a way, but a friend of mine told me that there was one of those 'selectively enforced laws' that limited the amount of ammo you can accumulate at once without being a licensed dealer. Maybe this is a good one for the legal forum?

It actually wouldn't surprise me if there was such a law knowing our idiot politicians.

I will probably never have enough.
