    I've got a lot more 9mm than .45 ammo. 300 or so rounds of Gold Dot in 9mm and 6 boxes of TAP in .45. Range ammo still works if needed so I'm good for a small zombie outbreak. Do .22s work on zombies?

    In a SHTF scenario there will be no such thing as "range" and "SD" ammo. You will shoot whatever is at hand. Therefore I don't count types, just boxes.

    The cheaper stuff goes to the range on a regular basis, though the more expensive stuff get's shot on occasion.

    BTW, the more you have the more the Zombies will have when they overrun you!

    More important than raw numbers is the quantity YOU shoot in a given month. I would suggest at least three times that amount.

    Personally, I try to never have less than 500 rounds of anything I shoot on hand at any given time. Double that for plinking/range ammo.

    Reloading all my range ammo and my heavy .38 Special, .357 Magnum and .45 Colt makes that rather easy.

    Guys I never said anything about range ammo. Stop changing the subject. I'm asking about JHP/Defense/carry whatever you want to call it ammo that you keep at hand for your pistols.

    I never mentioned any scenario and you're all coming up with these ideas. I never said anything about "zombies". I am asking a serious question and I did not expect answers that bordered on jokes about zombies attacking.

    I've gotten answers that were in line with what I expected, so I'll let this thread die.

    I'd say with 300-400 rds for each gun, you're covered.

    i guess i fail to see what you hoped to accomplish by asking the question.

    im gonna say most with an @ssload wont tell and most with little to none wont say either.

    i dont see how it helps you as it seems your mind is made up already.






    it seems most are trying to get accross the point you need more range ammo than defensive loads but your taking it badly.

    I don't know what your problem is, but with the exception of one or two, every reply answered your question.
