How much ammo do you have?

Postby rip4308 » Mon Mar 29, 2010 6:35 pm

When the zombies do attack, do you have enough?

Right now I have:
300 - .45 acp
400 - .40 s&w
250 - .357 mag
900 - .9mm
2,500 - .22LR

But I'm going to the store soon.

Nowhere near enough. Ammo is still not on the shelves here, and cash is limited. Probably got a couple hundred 9MM and .45 sitting around.

I've got about 4-500 .45, 6-700 various 12 ga, about 500 7.62 and just over 1k .223. I'll last atleast a couple waves.

1500-1750x 40 S&W, 1500x .45 ACP, 40x 30-40 Krag, 1000x Russian 7.62x54r, 600x Hungarian 7.62x54r, 5000x .22LR, 500x .44 Mag and I think that about covers it.

The majority of the .40 S&W, .45ACP, and .44 Mag are reloads. I've got enough supplies now to do 5000+ 40, and about the same in 45. I'm short on 44 brass so 500 is about my limit. (Always keep my eye on Wal-Mart WWB for more free brass.) Just need more powder and bullets and I could do more; fortunately I'm sitting on a boat load of primers. Which, you now can find locally!

Why have so much ammo? I shoot pistol about 3-4 times a week when I'm home and 2-3 times when I'm at college. So its good to keep stock in case I don't want to run the press. Plus, at home my brother and dad shares in the stash. I loaded up on Mosin Nagant ammo at a few gun shows this winter, mostly because its cheap and super fun. I'll probably be set on 7.62x54r ammo for a couple of years. I've also stocked up on .22 because we shoot them a lot in the summer. I've got a Colt AR-22 and a CZ 452 Lux, my brother has an old Mossberg 320, and my dad has a 10/22 with a kit on it. So we burn though a bunch of .22s. So, even though that seems like a boat load of ammo no hording going on because we shoot what we make, and make what we have. 3 shooters can burn up ammo quick.

G'Day Fella's,

I have "An Adequate Supply" of ammo but I won't be advertising the exact amount, as I'm constantly emptying cases, and then reloading them!

I assume you blokes have been reading J.W.Rawles books and writings on http://www.survivalblog.com?
I really am pleased to be living a long way south, in the Southern Hemisphere!!!
