    Stocking up on my ammo - suggestions

    Since the BO become president elect, I have been feeling the need to stock up on some ammo. I need some suggestions as to what I should stock up with.

    My guns include:
    Handguns
    G19
    XD 40 (with a 9mm conversion barrel)
    .357 Ruger Blackhawk
    .45 Springfield 1911
    P3AT (.380)

    Rifles
    Tikka 30-06
    Ruger 10-22

    I do a lot of reloading and currently reloading all my rifle, and have the capability to reload everything except the .380 (and of course the .22LR)

    So, for stocking up purposes I am looking for suggestions as to what caliber I should go for first, and then prioritize order for the rest.

    First I would put back some .45 auto, then a little .45 auto. Once I had enough I would put back just a little more .45 auto.

    Stock up on your SD ammo for your carry weapons (200-300 ea), then buy reload components for your handgun rounds.

    My goal is...
    1000 rounds SD ammo for each pistol (9mm & .45 ACP).
    2000 rounds of .22 LR
    1000 rounds of .223
    1000 rounds of .308
    As much practice ammo as I can afford.

    Unfortunately, I have yet to be able to afford to reach my goal.

    There is another thread running that asks what ammo you have stocked up, I am asking for suggestions on what I should be getting with the guns I have, but thanks for sharing anyway.

    Buy whatever you can ,prices will only go up especially if they tax the crap out of it,I personally reload for everything except 22lr,I been buying primers and powder and hoarding brass from the gun range,I also cast my own bullets,as far as SD ammo if it gets so bad you need more than a box or two then everything you got cast lead and FMJ is gonna be SD ammo

    been stocking up already...but to be honest...if you want to keep stocking up...keep your sources to yourself at this point. The hysteria from the nobama deflection has a lot of ammo suppliers running dry...just got a confirmation on another dry wallyworld here locally.

    I would suggest that you stock up on Federal HST from ATG while it is still available and is cheap. $25.95 for 50rnd box 45ACP

    Yeah, we have 5 wallmarts here and none of them have any ammunition other than shotgun and a few hunting rounds... Speaking of which did anyone else see that "automatic shotguns" are being hunted by the Brady bunch? Yikes!

    Wow! How much ammo should I have on hand? I don't really follow politics so I don't know what to think regarding stoking up in response to BO being elected. Why should I be stocking up so heavily? I'm new to firearms so pardon my ignorance.

    How do you guys store your ammo?

    BTW, the Wal-Mart by me seems to have plenty of ammo in stock.

    Yes, stock up as you can. Especially .22 because if they add the same amount of tax across the board, .22 will no longer be a good value.

    Absolute ammo drought here in the Knoxville, TN area with respect to Walmart bulk 22, 9mm and 45.
