I have yet to see any 45's in Walmart. I have 4 superstores around me and not one of them has had them in stock. Just out of curiosity, how much are they at Walmart?

For FMJ I presume? That's kind of pricey. I'd rather wait for Big Brown and order 250 or 500 at a time.

Default Stock pile ammo

Sinse I have given more thought to my situation, I don't have the need to move any of it.. I have only 5 callibers to stock, 45ACP, 9MM, .223 & 7.62X39 and .308. We have lots of guns and ammo that I plan to barter with. The 7.62 and .223 I have several cases. When I started buying the 7.62 it was priced at $169 per case and the .223 was $195. The case of .223 bought last week it was $238..

My son, son inlaw and myself have reloaders and tubs of everything needed to reload.

I am so glad there are so many people preping for the things to come. Did any of you see the documentory (After Armageoden)? It will be hard for a while, but we will get through it.

Keep mags loaded and webgear ready to go if you need to scram, but don't plan on scramming unless you have to. And make sure you have one or more bug-out locations to scram TO. Have ammo (and food, water, etc.) stored at those locations, too.
2,000 is a good amount for each caliber.. I have 5 guns to stock for, all others will get about 500 rnds.

Had you decided against .22LR? I have a good amount that I cycle through. Cheap, lightweight, and highly effective against smaller critters

Some is good, more is better and too much is just right.

Apologies to Cane.
