With 15 ammo cans packed, organized, labeled, and stowed away, the spread sheet says I have 15 different calibers totaling 9719 rounds. My wife thinks I'm crazy. I just point her to her shoe closet. I'll keep up with it from now on.

how much of each caliber?

What happenes if there are more than 9719 zombies invading your house?

Get more.

It's amazing how much more you can store when you just store it loose in an ammo can, vs. keeping it in 50 round boxes.

I've got a Rubbermaid Store and Save container with a ton of 9mm in it, that appears to be far less because I got rid of all the excess packaging.

No shit, and that is under the assumption that each of the 9,719 zombies will only take one shot.

I dont know man, the supply is marginal at best.

from my studies watching "Shaun of the Dead" if you don't have any guns and ammo, you can always throw ashtrays and crappy vinyl records at them to destroy their brains. So 9,719 bullets is acceptable in my book in the event of a zombie invasion.

that's seems like an agonizing process to accomplish! i usually just guestimate based on how many i have on stripper clips and in boxes
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 5:46:17 PM EDT
Just count by pounds or pallets. Much easier that way.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 5:48:09 PM EDT
You better go shopping for ammo.

THAT took you two weekends? Did you count each round individually?

I's a good idea to get a spreadsheet together. I did mine recently. I also did one for my gun magazines just so I knew what I had.

I gotta do a gun inventory some time

What do you like, ladle it out as you need it?

If you don't keep it by the thousands, and round off at that, you don't have enough ammo

If you still have credit left on the credit card or money in the bank then you don't have enough ammo.

I wish I had your spare time to count my ammo.

First off I'm assuming you have at least one gun for each caliber.

My limiting factor is not money, but closet space. I'm not going to build a fort out of it in my spare bedroom like some folks here do

one of my kids asked me,

"hey dad, whats the ratio of your ammo stash round count to the college fund dollars?"

I said, "don't worry, its great"

then I said: "oh, did you mean the college fund to rounds ratio?"
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 6:50:40 PM EDT
I have about 3400 rounds of .45 match floating around somewhere. And that's just one caliber.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 6:52:13 PM EDT
I always thought that .22LR didn't count for the offical ammo stash count. I'm over 10,000 with out counting any .22LR, but that includes 1800 rds of .308 and I don't even have a rifle to fire it with. Maybe I should get working on that 1919 parts kit thats under the couch
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 6:54:05 PM EDT
I only got like 500 rounds of ammo all together and my dad yells at me and says I don't want you to stock pile ammo. Then I go out and buy some more. You never know when the men with the blue helmets will come nocking

Your stocks of .45acp, .30-06 and .308 are woefully inadequate.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 10:01:41 AM EDT
Space savings w/o the boxes, but do you save the ammo box labels so you know what you are shooting?

Nelson laugh "Ha Ha!"

I have more now, but plan to shoot up thousands of rounds this spring.

If he does his part and kills over 9,700 zombies, and the rest of us do the same, percentage wise, the MBZ' will disappear pretty fast.
