    Going strictly by recent events I am going to say .40 caliber. At Wal-mart and all the LGS, 9mm was the first to go, followed by .45. The only thing on the shelves for weeks was .40.

    Now if you are planning on stealing it, 9mm is the most abundant ammo in the world...

    Well Mr. Van Winkle,

    Since the SHTF on Dec, 15th, 40S&W has been by far the most available ammo, Range or SD.

    Sincerely,

    Everyone else who didn't sleep through the last 7 weeks.


    This is meant to be funny, not mean, so don't be offended. I just wish I had a .40.....

    Thanks. I do Not steal But one does not know what they are capable of for survival. I suppose with the 9mm it is everywhere, 45acp kind of old school. I am a fan of the 40S&W but own a few 9mm though. Been thinking about this. Do you think powder,lead and just reloading supplies in general will be hard to come by???

    Van Winkle??? Be nice. One must ask questions to gain knowladge. I do not know everything but I sure am not ashamed to ask and who knows if I keep asking questions and getting answers I possibly one day can stop asking because I will know all. The dumb question(s) is/are the one(s) not asked.I ask alot of questions, maybe that is how I am retired at 50yrs old. Got my mining engineering dagree while working full time as general underground mine foreman in 4yrs so please be nice I am learning,how bout you

    You served up that big fat soft ball right over the plate and I couldn't resist................

    reloading components are a little easier to come by but primers are can be a little scarce, powder can still be found, if you get a mold you can cast your own bullets.

    I would definitely recommend reloading,......if nothing else it will occupy time otherwise spent reducing your ammo stockpile building it up. And its fun, especially if you enjoy being an engineer.

    I have been reloading for a short time now so learning it as I go. It has been fun so far and not blown self up. What is shelf life of reloading supplies like powder,primers. I thought about getting a broken dorm size fridg for storing the powder and stuff in. Think it will do the job?? Thanks for not being to PO at me and yes I did leave the first post wide open fot it,I could not have passed it up either,quick thinking on your part. If you reload I may bounce questions off you for help if thats ok.
