We all know that if the SHTF, our ARs will be our weapons of choice. We will need their high capacity and long range accuracy to fight off zombies. Sufficient quantity is measured in cases, not rounds.

But how much non-AR ammo do people keep? I'm talking about ammo for handguns, shotguns or non-AR rifles.

Just curious what you guys do. Thanks in advance...

Well, since you asked, looks like I need to stock up. I do have 6500 rounds of 5.56 tho... I have a single-shot 20 guage, a Mossberg 12 ga pump, and a SKS (never fired). Here is all I have for those, and one of the 12 ga birdshot boxes is half full:

I figure the best way is to have incremental goals, a bit at a time. In fact tonight I am going to do an inventory.

My current goals are:

9mm 1k rounds on hand ?
.357 1k rounds on hand?
12ga 1k rounds on hand?
7.62x39 480 rounds on hand, goal is 2k
5.56 M193, 1500 rounds on hand, goal is 3k
5.56 range ammo on hand? would like to have 3k
.308 about 40 on hand, very bad, want at least 1k

Make a goal, work to reaching it, then set another.

Bout 60K of non AR ammo. [unless you count my 9mm as I have an AR for that.
Link Posted: 3/12/2006 3:52:49 PM EDT
10k 5.56/.223
6k 7.62X39
5k .308/7.62X51
2k .22 LR
1.5k 9mm
1.5k .40
600 .45
500 12 guage 00

I need more handgun and shotgun ammo as well as more surplus .308.
Link Posted: 3/12/2006 4:03:51 PM EDT
BTW, here's what little I have:

1,500 of 5.56mm
500 of .22LR
200 of assorted 12 guage birdshot
About 150 each of .380, .38 special .357 and .45 ACP

SHTF? What's gonna happen and how am I gonna tote all that ammo in a Bug-Out situation?

Pistol ammo: 1700 - 9mm
500 - 45acp
500 - .22lr

Shotgun: 50 - 12g
20 - 20g

I buy more ammo when I head to a class, but I don't stockpile. As I don't shoot or carry my 1911's any more, I don't buy ammo for them. Why waste the money when I'm working the 9mm pistols more? And, the .22 ammo reallly doesn't count because it's sooooo dang cheap in bulk.

My goal for this year is to have 5000 rounds of defensive ammo on hand. That's .223 and 9mm or .45acp. I have to get re-employed, but at least I have a goal to shoot for.

You can never have enough ammo

I got one 22lr bullet, I lost the other one...
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 2:52:32 AM EDT

40Cal 1.5k
38Cal 2K+
223 8K (guessing since I just bought 4.5K recently
12 gauge not enough
lot of 22's


Anyone know where to get a good deal on a quantity of quality buckshot?

Exactly. I buy all I can when I can.

A good general rule is to store 87 rounds of NON - AR ammo at all times, Jethro.
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 4:52:59 AM EDT
I got about a case and a half of Wolf .30 Carbine for my M1 Carbine stashed so far. I read that .30 Cal Carbine is a more effective round for most types of walking dead.
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 5:16:42 AM EDT
same amount as 556....NOT ENOUGH!

I shoot just as much of the "other" rounds as I do 556 so I have just as hard a time keeping it in sotck.

Rundown:
2.5k 308
1k 9mm (I have a 9mm AR)
1.5k 5.45x39
600rds 30-06
1.5k 30 carbine
2k 556

30rds 7.62x39

Could be as simple as Executive order banning the sale of ammo, and it's importation. That would qualify as SHTF to me.

You're so naive.

Do you think Don Knotts' recent death was of natural causes?! The same Don Knotts who played Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith show? The same Barney Fife who had been known to deputize ordinary citizens to keep public order in times of crisis.

Yes, *they* are organizing.... and beginning to act.... and they are starting with our leaders, our role models.

Take a look at Falarak's shelves. Does anyone see any SAG there? Suspicious. I'm thinking empty cans.

Dont make me open them, and take new pics. Besides that is just ONE of the ammo closets. I was surprised how sturdy they are. Rock solid - but then, they arent that wide either.

I remember thinking, "Man, those are some well-built shelves!", when I saw it! I know how heavy full cans are!
