I'm in sorta the same boat: recently started with nothing, and I want to build a stockpile. But I can't afford to write a check and call in the forklifts.Me, I will always have at least 1 bullet for each gun I own.
Why so much .22LR and 12 gauge?i keep minimum on hand:
20k .22 LR
15k 12 ga mix of all types
12.5k 9mm luger
and 5k each in 7.62x39mm, 5.56mm, 7.62x51mm
oddball calibers for my fun guns in 30-30, 45LC, 380ACP, 25ACP, 45-70 etc i just keep maybe 10 or 12 boxes of each
I have shelves set up in my reloading room, which is down in my basement it doesnt take up as much room as you think. Most of it has been collected box by box. If I bought 1 box to shoot, I would buy 1 box to put away. When I go on days off, I will try to borrow a camera and post you a pic...........OK, I'm seeing people say they have lots and lots of ammo and more to reload. What I would like to know is where do you keep all of it. I mean I would think that you would need a bunker to keep that much in a home. Me, I will always have at least 1 bullet for each gun I own.
