    For those of you who stockpile ammo..

    What percentage of that ammunition is JHP and/or FMJ? Personally I only have 100rds of JHP, and .45 ammo just whenever I go shoot. In a SHTF situation, for those of you who have ammunition saved up, whats your stockpile balance like?

    Ruger SP101 DAO .357 w/ 125gr Speer Gold Dots

    Right now I only have JHPs, but with my schedule, it doesn't look like I'll be shooting too much right away. I plan to do my CCW class this weekend, but because of my small amount of shooting, I'll probably still just shoot JHPs for practice since that's what I'll use for defense.

    All of my pistol stuff is FMJ. I can generally aquire more of it. One of these days I'm going to experiment with converting them to JHP...awesome accuracy isn't necessary for the pistols.

    99% FMJ. I only "stock" the ammo I use at the range. I buy stuff as I come across it at a decent price.

    SD ammo...enough for a small war.

    Practice ammo...enough for a large war.

    I stock a lot of FMJ, and keep just enough JHP to keep all the carry weapons loaded, and a few spares.

    Hmm, 500 rounds of JHP in 9mm. 100 round JHP in .45
    50 rounds FMJ in 9mm, 50 round in .45 FMJ. Other then that Shotgun ammo is plentiful as dirt here so I dont really stock pile it. I can pick up a pallet today if I wanted to.
    About 800 rounds of .22LR, all hollowpoint.....

    I figure my PD ammo versus range ammo is around 25/75% or something like that. I practice quite a bit, and I've never shot anyone in this country.

    I have about 70 rnds of HP .45acp, only because I bought a box of WWB SD without paying attention to what it was. One WWB looks like another.
