    You don't have enough.

    you can never have enough I have at least 500 rounds of each caliber and I try to buy 150 rounds each time at the range and only shoot 50 of each. I also have 2500+ for my ar 15 just in case.
    When SHTF I don't call 911, I call 1911

    +1...Simple reply and to the point....Gotta agree ...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Have 1500 9mm, 600 in .308, and need at least 2000 AR (don't have the AR yet, but soon, very soon)

    I don't have a ton of ammo:
    400 9mm target
    100 9mm SD
    2000 .22 (4 bulk packs of 500)

    Other than that, I've got 1000 bullets, 1lb of powder, 600 primers. I've yet to start reloading but as soon as the rest of my press comes in and I get comfortable reloading I will be stocking up with more bullets, powder and primers. You can NEVER have enough and reloading seems to be the easiest way to do this, especially since it is cheaper.

    I can see that we need to work on the ammo stock.

    Right now I have a major hoard of food, booze and cases of wine, so maybe I could use that as currency for ammo??

    You can go through 250 rounds in a hurry.
