And I thought I was the only one. LMAO Lets see I have.. 2 boxes .243 1 .35 Rem 1 .270 1 30-06 some 16ga (#4 buck) 12 3"mags I only have 1 12gaw/ a 23/4" chamber I have assorted singles of all kinds of handgun ammo and only one handgun. Go figure. I figure I'll have most all of thos guages/calibers sometime and if TSHTF I can trade a box of ammo for whatever down the road. Ammo is universal and good to have. EDIT I have some old 20guage stuff too. But my mom has one of those. I also have 2 boxes of .22WRF (the grand daddy of the .22WMR) I fire them in my 25MN.

I have got an assload of singles for just about everything. Thats why I specified having at least a box. I figured everybody collected singles at one time or another.

Couple of boxes of 6.5x55 for the Norwegian Krag I traded. Otherwise its the standard gouple of coffee cans with stuff that has floated in over the years. My Dad was a Cop and as people found stuff cleaning house he'ld get it. Which is how I got the Krag.

I'm sure I can round up a box of .45 ACP. Sold the pistol a few months ago. But keeping the ammo/brass/stuff for the next one. 1 box of .357 Reminton Maximum. A few singles with the "strangest" being a single .38-70 Winchester. Come to think of it, I've got a .338-378 KT floating around here somewhere.

I've got a few - used to host 'Schutzenfests' a couple times a year, several people, each wth several firearms, and open invite to many other folks with the proviso they 'bring a box of ammo, someone will have something that can shoot it'.

Link Posted: 6/13/2003 2:26:33 PM EDT
I have about 5000 once fired 9mm para brass. (shit was given to me) Being a .45 freak I have never had any use for it. I recently crossed the line and purchased a Makarov. I have read that this brass can be trimmed, bell the shit out of the mouth (mak bullet is about .010 bigger than standard 9mm), and used for the 9mm makarov round. I may hang onto it for a bit, in case the supply of ammo from Russia dries up.
Link Posted: 6/13/2003 3:18:58 PM EDT
no, but I have some guns with no ammo and some mags for a gun I don't own (beretta 92)
Link Posted: 6/13/2003 3:41:24 PM EDT
I have a box of remanufactured 50 BMG but that problem will be solved tomorrow morning at 10:31 AM when I pick up my AR-50. [:D]
Link Posted: 6/13/2003 5:13:09 PM EDT
Yep...I've got 100 rounds of 7.62X39 ammo. Figure that AKs and SKSs are so common that it might be useful if the SHTF.

Sure I've got a couple .22s. I just don't have anything specifically chambered for .22 short. Let's not even start on grips and holsters.

I have a case of 5.45mm. I sold the gun and forgot I still had a case of ammo. I do miss it and might buy another if I find a deal.

I believe Centruy Arms sells those if you want more.

I blew up my Taaurus .45 something, and now I have 5000 rounds of .45ACP and no .45 guns left. If you have not geussed, I treat my guns pretty hard, I managed to destroy a bolt action bull barrelled .22lr, by overheating.
Link Posted: 6/14/2003 6:07:22 PM EDT
I own dies for, and reload four calibers that I don't have guns for, and reload five calibers I don't even have dies for. What do I win? [:)]
