It's always good to have at least 1000 rounds on hand in every caliber of firearm you have. That's usually what I try to keep. As for the mags I think you need more. I have 20 for each rifle. Get them while they are still affordable. USGI or Thermold only.

Okay, I can see you guys are wiseguys tonight. How about numbers instead of snide commentary?
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 4:50:48 PM EDT
Way more than you and that's per firearm! [:D]

Seeing as how I am un-employed and I have gone shooting quite a bit. I am shall we say running on fumes. As far as mags, my rule is 10 mags per rifle. The standard capicity variety(30rdrs), what the anti's call Hi-Cap. This is a mis nomer. HiCaps would be a beta-c mag. 30rdrs are standard mil issue these days.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 5:34:00 PM EDT
Heck, I usually carry 1000 rds in my truck. 1000 rds is just a good day of shooting. I've got 1000 rds rolling around loose in my sock drawer. If I only had 1000 rds of 5.56, I'd be having a panic attack.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 5:34:05 PM EDT
I've got about 1,400 .223 800 7.62x54R 2700 9mm 500 30.06 4000 8mm 10,000 .22LR 1,250 12GA Birdshot 100 12GA 00 Buck 50 12GA Slugs Then several thousand each of small rifle/pistol primers, about 20lbs of various powders, 10,000 various pieces of brass and 5,000 or so various bullets. Enough to hold me over till October in everything but 9mm and .223 anyways.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 5:41:37 PM EDT
lots and lots but I do need more
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 5:43:51 PM EDT
Gee, I guess I misunderstood something. I thought that was what the numbers were that went with the rounds. I got 22rds of .22, 38rds of .38, 40 rounds of .40, 45 rounds of .45, 223rds of 223, and 308 rounds of .308. I wasn't sure how many rounds of 7.62x39 to get. Do you multiply those numbers to get a total??? Oh yeah, I also have 24rds of 30-06. I wonder if this is why the guy at the gun shop looks at me funny when I buy ammo?? he really doesn't like taking some of them out of the box to sell me the box.

You haven't shown us your Official Hangfire/McUzi Girl Guide Badge yet... How do we know we can trust you with classified info...?
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 6:01:36 PM EDT
Well you can burn off about 1,200 rounds real quick in a serious fire fight, so lets just say you better bring a months worth of food and water.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 6:07:50 PM EDT
Well.......... I am using a plastic container filled with 2700 rds of South African .223 in battlepacks as a foot rest right now.

Yeah , I dunno if that's info. I want floating out there! hehe I have plenty! As in at least 2-3 thousand for each of the calibers I shoot regularly.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 7:04:24 PM EDT
Probably about 8,000 rds total of all the calibers I shoot . 10 calibers in all ( I think)
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 7:21:54 PM EDT
Hold on for a minute... I'll get the numbers for you just as soon as I get off the phone with the local media and ATF. I figured they would also like to know.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 7:39:26 PM EDT
I have one round, I keep it in my shirt pocket.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 8:12:25 PM EDT
One box of 22LR, Who's Asking?
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 8:18:29 PM EDT
I don't think it's wise to divulge such information.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 8:20:54 PM EDT
CQB30, I would like to see the building after you burn off 1200 rounds in Close Quarter Battle. I would think in any urban situation 10 to 20 rounds would be a serious fire fight, unless you are in LA of course. I am a recovering ammoaholic and magaholic. I couldn't begin to tell you how much ammo or how many mags I have. It's always fun to find a brick of .22 in the glove box you forgot you had though. Buster

You guys buy ammo for your guns?! [>:/]
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 9:19:16 PM EDT
Somewhere around a million I think. Its hard to count with the car parked on it. Its cool when you have a gravel driveway AND a slingshot.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 11:55:37 PM EDT
20 rounds of .22lr 35 rounds of .38

How many times does it take to polish one bullet to get to center? kinda like a lollipop right. alex

Ammo? Your telling me I need ammo for my guns. Yeah, right! Next, you'll be telling me Janet Reno has just become a board member of the NRA.[:D]

Thought you were ammoman, before I looked at your name. He sometimes shows up on threads like this and says, over 1 million rounds. [:D]

Hahhahahahaah gardenWeasle "I just remembered that my tumbler is running" Me too.... How many rounds is 16 lbs. gun powder? I measure brass by the bag. Primers by the box..... Never thought about how many I have?

Lots. I just love when they talk about some "danger to society" being taken out of his "barricaded" house by the local "peace officers," and they talk about his "assault weapon" (highpoint carbine) and [i]"over [b]100 rounds[/b] of ammunition!"[/i] Bwaaahahahhhaaaahaha!! One hundred rounds?!? Dude, you need to call for resupply most ricky tick! Semper Fidelis Jarhead out.
Link Posted: 8/15/2001 8:54:03 AM EDT
A little over 15,000 rounds and enough reloading supplies to make another 5,000. Only about 1,200 are rimfire.
