    I lost track, and my stock can vary. For each caliber, probably around 200-600 rounds - more in .22, .223, 7.62 x 54 and 12 gauge, a lot less in others like .380 and .32-20.

    .22LR, .22 mag, .380, 9mm, .38 spl, .357 mag, .40, .45 auto, .32-20, .223, 7.62 x 54, 12 gauge.

    Well, I just reloaded another 80 9mm, so I think I am up to about300 or so. Got 300 40, (don\'t have the gun anymore.), about 50 12 ga, and maybe 70 7.62x54R. Gotta stock up.....and get those pesky 7.62x54R dies!:)

    Probably 200 - 300 on average although I am frequently out of one caliber or another, usually 9mm or .40. I am NEVER out of .45 or 12ga and just in case meme swings by I keep a brick of .22 LR in the safe. ;)

    Oh my now that\'s a question.

    450+ Shotgun shells(I don\'t know what\'s in my range tub from the last outing)
    6000+ rimfire
    3000 centerfire pistol
    1800 centerfire rifle
    150 loads for BP rifle
    100 loads for BP pistol (actually I need some powder for these)

    Ooops I just remembered my neighbor gave me 3000 rounds of rimfire and about 750 shotgun shells that I haven\'t fully inventoried and moved in to the magazine yet. :D

    I usually buy ammo 1000 rds at a time for pistol, and 250-500 rds at a time for rifle and shotgun.

    I only have 405 clays on hand, so I need another box of those. Hoping to shoot some skeet this week after it warms up a bit.

    Two hundred or so for each hangun, 100 for shotgun, varies for the rifles depending on prices at the local gunshow. I only buy those maybe twice a year.

    About 1000 per gun of reloads, maybe another 100 per gun of defense loads.
    If we ever have a fire, between ammo and reloading components, we\'re gonna
    be making a really big smokin hole!!

    Lots

    Way too much.

    It has been almost 7 years since I closed our gun store, and had the auction. Stuff that did not sell was sold to other dealers, but ammo all came home.

    Found I had almost 4000 rounds of .22 WRF, so last year found a nice S&W 22 mag to shoot the stuff in. Who knows what I will find next:question::question:

    Right now:

    9MM 200 (got to get to wall mart or buy the caliber conversion for the Dillon 650)

    .40 800 (low time to reload)

    .357 mag. (500 but I gave the gun to dad two years ago for x-mass, need a new one to use this stuff up)

    45 ACP 100 (donít have my 1911 yet)

    12 ga. 25 federal Barnes expander slugs
    30 Winchester 1 oz slugs
    25 000 buck shot (these are old and need to be shot up soon)

    As of right now I am without a rifle, I hope to get a .308 Bushmaster sometime this year.
