Ammo Supply Question... How much do you keep on hand, bulk versus quality Ammo.
My personal example: 45 ACP

I've got a couple thousand rounds of generic FMJ rounds for practice, etc.

When it comes to good JHP rounds, I've only got a couple hundred...

What are you guys doing for your ammo supplies. Bulk vs Specality (match, jhp, etc)?

i'm just aiming for a decent stockpile of jhp defensive ammo.....

I try to keep a few 100 of .40, ~100 of .38, and ~100 of 12ga handy. Much less than most of the gun
guy/survivalist types.

multiple cases of all, except nice .308

If I need more than a hundred rounds, I'll get it from the bombed out police station.

For most handgun calibers, I'm about the same except ...
I reload my own "bulk" with the same weight JHP as the purchased "quality" ammo, which includes 9mm, .357 Mag, and .45 ACP. Because of the legal horror stories of shootings with personal reloads, I use only factory ammo for self defense.

I reload all .30 Carbine, 45-70, .45 Colt, and .454 Casull and have ample supplies of powder, brass, bullets, and primers (except I wish I had more of the rare-as-hens-teeth small rifle primers for the .454 Casull).

I don't reload my 7x57, .380, or the .22LR (obviously), though I do have several bricks of the last stashed away.

5.56 is the only other significant caliper I don't reload at all. I have a pile of Federal Lake City XM193 for plinking and a slightly smaller pile of Hornady 5.56 75 gr TAP for serious endeavors and/or hunting.

100 of .45 ACP and 9mm quality rounds next to my handguns and clips partially loaded
buy cheaper ammo at the range.

Too far away, which they've proven all too well already. Patrol cars may be better.
Those are already semi-delivered at the nearest smoldering 7/11, saving the donuts.

A lot of 5.56 because it's getting harder and harder to find
It's all Lake City. My other calibers 50-100 rounds, all JHP.

i figure the same...if the shtf scenario, things are pretty bad
if i go through 100 or 200 of the calibers.

i'd barter ammo for medication.
