    Depends on how many .308 rifles you have, and what type (bolt action, semi-auto).

    I only have between 200-300 and I don't plan on dramatically increasing the supply anytime soon. You should do whatever makes you feel good, as long as you can afford it.

    I think it depends. If .308s are all you've got, then you want all you can get!
    But are we talking for EOTWAWKI scenarios or just a retailer you know has a shipment coming in?
    I only have a couple of hundred rounds, but I hand loaded those and they are match ammo. My only .308 is a bolt action. Perfectly adequate for the end of the world because I would not expect to be engaging a lot of targets at the range where I would need the .308. I have other weapons that I would expect to get much more use, so I have more ammo in the other calibers.

    Just due to escalating prices I buy in quantity whenever I can, I have cases (1600 rounds each) of 7.62X39 I bought in the late 80s that I paid less than $100 a case, what is it worth now??? I buy in sealed lots (battle packs or sealed cases) from online sites when there is a sale and store in the basement.

    I have about 1,500 rounds sealed for 2 FAL's and a Savage bolt gun. I also have about 500 rounds I reload and rotate.

    I have a rather large stockpile myself, but I only have a 308 and a 22LR. If I had an AR15 as well I would most likely keep more 223 and decrease the amount of 308 kept on hand. So I think it depends on what else you keep in your inventory. It's so subjective that I did not vote.

    Presently I only have about 400 - 500 rounds of .308 ammo for my FN FAL. I have around 2,000 rounds of .223 for my AR-15 and around 1,000 rounds of 7.62 x 39 for the SKS.

    I would like more but at the moment funds for a larger ammo dump is rather limited. I do need to get a couple hundred rounds for my .30-06 bolt gun which now, I only have about 30 or 40 rounds of hunting ammo. I used to have a total of around 8,000 rounds combined for all my long guns but have shot a lot without replacing my stockpile. Which is a big mistake on my part, I know. But it is what it is. Right now, funds are being funneled into other areas. Still on the preparedness front, but other areas none the less.

    The price is what draws me because I have shot the ammo and while its not "match grade" it shoots well out to 600-700 yards. I just fear that in 2-3 years ammo, primers and such will cost two times more than it does now.
