does anyone know f the industry keeps totals on rounds produced of different calibres?

I would guess .22LR would be #1 and 12GA. would be #2.

I think 7.62x39mm would be the third most shot ammo, and 5.56mm the fourth most shot.

If it was based on $ of ammo sold, I think 12Ga would be first, followed by .223 and then 7.62AK ammo.

Is there a place to find the information I need?

On a worldwide basis I actually think 9mm is the most common.

Hey Eric:

Do you think you'll be getting any of the South African Battle Pack .223 in anytime soon?

Eric, look up your shipping records of S&B 230gr. FMJ to Carrollton, TX.  I'd like to think I'm a big part of those numbers.  ;-)

Anyway, this is a very interesting question.

Eric,
When are you going to stock some good 8mm surplus?  Would like to get some Romanian 8mm in quantity and would like to deal with someone reputable.

I would think world-wide, 9mm and 7.62x39 are the most popular ammo worldwide.

I would think .45 and .223 would be the most popular in america.

I think .308 and .30-06 would be up there too as one of the most popular in America.
