Grandkids like to shoot, so I probably have 10-15 bricks of assorted 22- not counting my match ammo (keep yer grubby little mitts off the good stuff, kids)

UPS delivery man is still not speaking to me since I hit the sale on MILSURP 8mm Mauser and 7.62x54R- got a few thousand of each. Still shooting the steel cored Chinese 7.62x39 I got a few years back- down to about 1500 of those.

Reload .308, .220 Swift, and .243. Down to a couple of thousand primers, but will wait til the market settles down on those.

Still reloading .45 ACP, .38 wadcutter, and HAVE to reload my .357s (very heavy solids for long range target/hunting- can't really buy 165 gr easily)

Got a good deal about 2 years ago on the last of the Greek .303 Brit- but only a thousand. Getting hard to find.

Guess the shortest round in my inventory right now is the .348 Winchester (reload THAT for sure- price will make you weep!) and I'm down to about 600 rounds of 7.5 Swiss. The milsurp load is getting scarce.

The .410s, 20's and 12's are stacked up beside the safes. Never know when you may want to pop some doves, or take a friend out for sporting clays. Couple of hundred oddballs- .38 S&W, .32 S&W, few rounds of .320 Euro for that weird little Belgian revolver- and the stuff you picked up in trade, but you keep because you might get a gun some day that uses it- like 32 gauge shotgun, .351 SLR, etc.


Hey- when the day comes that you are knee deep in zombies, remember I told ya so!

And value of my arms and ammo has appreciated MUCH better than most of my stocks!
how much cheaper is reloading for example? half the price or what? thanks

Take a look at that thread, it should answer your questions!

I don't know what the definition of too much ammo is really. I am sure everyone will have a different opinion. But that said, I do know what the definition of not enough ammo is. That is when you run out.

So I buy .22 every week as I shoot pretty much every week. I also have a supply of magnum ammo that I shoot (but less rounds of that compared to .22).

I do have a stash of ammo for my guns but I'd have to count the boxes and I am too lazy right now.

Glox, would correct one thing I said on costs earlier- dang .348 ammo is about $70/ 20 rounds now. To be able to shoot something like that, reloading becomes VERY cost effective VERY quickly!!!
