    I would get some Dardick Trounds. It would be a great investment if I held on to them long enough.

    A $1000 doesn't go as far as it used to. Well, it completely depends on the guns in the arsenal, of course. I'd top up the 5.56x45mm, .44mag and 9mm, leaving a few $hundred aside for a reloading setup.

    I'd buy bulk supplies and at the very least be able to purchase twice the amount of dollars worth by reloading,powder, primers and bullets.

    As for cases, I've got plenty.

    My bullet purchases would be mostly 30 cal. and .223.

    Some .45 and 9mm for the pistols.
    9mm could be used for trading stock.

    I'd get the .30 in a bullet weight that could be used in many guns, and still be practical...150 grains. That would cover the 20+ various .30's that I've got.

    The .223 would be used for the AR's.

    .45 and 9mm bullets would be most of the pistol. The 9mm could be also used in .38's, 357 and the like.

    Of course, I'd have to buy several bricks of .22.

    I might stock up on some more .50 BMG bullets,because if its hard times that are upon us all of a sudden, there might be an advantage to having a hard gun and a "quiet" one.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    .50 BMG, loaded with 750 gr. Hornady A-MAX bullets.

    Might be able to get ~200 rounds for $1000.

    Nah.
    Last time I got some API and APIT I got 500 rounds for 70.00 bucks at the last gunshow I went to. It was pulled, but it shoots good and is accurate enough. It all lights up too.

    AMAX is for paper punching. When the SHTF, you want the other stuff...

    I'm doing pretty much exactly that right now, and it all goes into storage. Yesterday I bought 500 rds each of .45; 9mm; .223.; 7.62X39 Last week I bought 5000 rds of .22. Next will be a 500 rd ammo purchase for my tactical/scoped 308

    The rifle ammo is particularly important. The shotgun is too, it'll be a mix (slug, 00, #4, etc). I'll have enough for the pistols too before I'm finished.

    I'd spend 90% @ CMP and get as much .30-06 as possible. The 10% I'd spend on .45 acp bullets power and primers.

    I'd stock up on those calibers that I would be using if (when) the ammo supply dries up, i.e. 30-30. .223, .22LR / short, various shotgun shell sizes, and of course , .45acp and .38/357. $1000 won't buy much at today's prices. It really is a good idea to start stockpiling now.
