    Agree unless 7 haveove 1000 rounds ot shotting that caliber currently working onsome stocking up 1 k of 9mm650 of .380700 of .45 1500 of .40 shot 100 of .38 special and 150 .44 QUOTE=NH_Esau;2760936]Well, in December, I thought having a bit under 2k rounds of .22LR was ridiculous. Then I got down to ~my last brick and decided that was wrong. Slowly building up, and I think my new .22LR goal is 2k of hollow point, and another 2k or more of whatever quality stuff I can find for practice.

    Same thing with 5.56, 9mm, and .38/.357 - I used to think 1k was enough to have on hand. Now I'm building up to 1k of untouchable (not allowed to shoot it unless I replace the stock with an equal amount of new) and 2k+ of practice. I don't shoot as much .40 and .45, so I'm thinking 1k of practice is about where I'll aim.

    Larger caliber rifle stocks will build much more slowly.[/QUOTE]

    Ya, I'd like to have 300 - 1000 + rounds for each caliber. I've met that goal for a couple, still have to work on some. I don't think I could ever have enough 22lr - I'll start to feel comfortable when I have 5,000.

    I've met my goal of 1000+ for 9mm, now I just have to buy more 9mm to shoot 9mm. That's how I keep my stockpile.
    I'll be getting started reloading in the next few months, not too sure if it'll help growing my stock piles but at the least I'll be spending less money for the rounds I do shoot.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    When it comes to ammo, my wife calls me the squirrel. Just like the little creature is always on the lookout for nuts, I am always going out of my way to find ammo...I will never have enough.

    What I'd like to have on hand and what I've got are 2 different things. I've had to stop buying due the "LostHope & Change" policies having a large affect on me lately. But it still would not be a good idea for muhammad to come snooping around here. Nixay on the actual count but, I'm good.

    I don't have a problem. I can stop anytime I want to. I just buy it every once in a while to keep my hands from shaking.

    Since, at this point, I only have three calibers. I'm aiming for 2k rounds of 9mm, 22lr and 357/38special. I'll see how paranoid I get after that. On the good side...I found 600 rounds of CCI 22 lr today...woohoo! So I got that going for me.

    During the last shortage I decided to put in a years supply, or a years worth of components for every caliber . But I have fallen far short of that. I can still shoot 9mm, 40, and 45 cal. But 380, 32ACP, and 25auto, I have just a few boxes left. In 22LR I have a two year supply of Match grade ammo, but nothing for plinking, hunting, or practice. So now I just practice at monthly matches. DR

    I keep enough to defend me and mine and to go hunting whenever the need arise.

    LOL. I know what you mean. I think I have a problem sometimes too...then I go out and find some more ammo.

    I stockpile enough of an arsenal so that I can load all of my assault clips...I have assault clips as big as 50rd for my Glock assault machine gun, fortunately having a barrel shroud really helps, the shoulder thing that goes up is a great idea...they make these weapons so you don't even have to aim...*







    *I am being sarcastic in case anyone is wondering...I usually keep around a couple hundred rounds of range ammo per caliber and a few boxes of SD ammo for each gun.
