So .223 ammo is always in high demand but I always felt ok about it because I have a decent hunting rifle in 30-30. However, as I planned for any disaster scenarios I figured there would always be plenty of .22 LR, 9mm, or .45 ACP right up until an actual crisis hit. I never pictured a non-emergency wiping out access to such common calibers. Especially .22 LR, which I always keep plenty on hand anyway but I can't visit the gun range without, ya'know, using ammunition. Even 30-30 is getting difficult to come by. .38 Special also flies off the shelf and it is actually easier to find .45 ACP right now than .38 Special, .380 Auto, or 9mm Luger. This is forcing me to re-evaluate common calibers that have lower demand. As it didn't fit with the "7 guns theory" I didn't worry about it. I figured common calibers would be useful after SHTF scenarios because it would be good to have weapons that could fire any ammunition I came across or traded for, and trade would most likely occur with what is common. In my area .222 Remington, 30-06, and 7mm are still on the shelves in decent quantities. .40 S&W is around but diminished and .357 Magnum actually has a good selection. I'm not really interested in .44 Magnum but I do see it and I wonder if handgun hunting is a possibility. I also see plenty of .17 and .22 WMR. This makes me wonder if at a minimum I should consider adding a 4" or 6" barrel .357 Magnum revolver to my collection and maybe a .22 WMR lever action. The other aspect this buying panic has shown me is magazine availability is a problem. I knew that before but now I am thinking I need more than my 30-30 that is not magazine reliant. I'm also seriously considering a .22 WMR revolver but I think the rifle would be more useful and is a higher priority. Anyone else seeing the need to maybe alter plans after this recent panic buying spree?
