Currently, I have:
1,800 rds 9mm (this looks real good)
500 rds 12Ga, mixed between 50 slugs, 150 00Buck, and 300 Birdshot (this looks real good)
1000 rds 22LR (if it were me, I'd feel a lot better with 2500 rds on hand)
900 rds 5.56 (this looks like a place to bump up a little bit)
160 rds .308 (if it were me, I'd feel a lot better with 500 rds on hand)
20 rds 7.62x54 (if it were me, I'd feel a lot better with 500 rds on hand)
It's a start, but I know I'm a ways off, but what id your bare minimum ammo storage?
You have a respectable start. Increase calibers as your budget allows. Since the crazy prices and shortages (plus a move to another state) I shot very little in 2013. I have noticed most calibers are available except for 22LR. Buy a couple boxes each payday and your quantities will increase in no time. I'd pick a number that is your bare minimum. Get some ammo cans and store that amount for long term.
