    I finally pulled almost all of my ammo cans to refresh the desiccant and organize. Shot a quick video of what I've put back. Enjoy!

    At least the ones in my area. It sure took them a long time. The cases had been packed for months since they said they were going to stop all handgun and 'military' ammo. Federal .223 or Winchester 5.56 25 cents a round. I picked up JHP 240 gr. .44 Mag for $30 for 50. (White box) and...

    So i think I have read all the 7.62 vs 5.56 stuff and a lot of people are sick of it. This is not what this thread is about. What I want to know is the optimal arsenal selection for a family. For me it's this: Single Person: 7.62x39 - rationale - better for hunting larger game, cheap ammo A...

    While this might also belong in the firearms section, I think it's general enough to also be relevant here. If you are short on ammo, or if you reload and are short on components, the time to act to correct this is now. Grafs has indicated in an email sent yesterday that "...we are beginning...

    How many rounds do you have, in what caliber, for when the SHTF? I just picked up 2,000 of .223, and 200 .40 S&W yesterday. It prolly brings my total up to 4-5,000 I guess. But a lot of them are for my hunting gun arsenal (.300 Win Mag, 30-06, .308, .243, .257 Weatheby Mag, .22 LR) and pistol...

    I couldn't have said it better more capacity > bigger bullets in my opinion. With that said I chose a gun the gives me the best of both worlds.

    Last weekend I was at a buddies house, and we were talking about stockpiling 223, 7.62x39, 308,,,,, various types of ammunition. I told my buddy that I was stockpiling Monarch 223 and Monarch 7.62x39 from academy sports and outdoors. Its steel cased ammo, but it only cost $4.89 for a box of...

    I reload my own, but it's a slow process. Looking to get my hands on MANY more rounds. I don't mind box loads, plinkers, etc. Just whatever is cheap. Hollow points are not necessary, just a nice to have. I use these in a rifle/pistol combo so any grain count will do. Where do you get yours for...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    Just curious if there is any sort of consensus on how much ammo to have on hand for a shtf event? Thoughts......

    Since I am not restricted by the Geneva Conventions I pay a little extra and buy mostly soft point for my post event ammo reserves. I buy 2 weights 125 Wolf soft point and 154 Silver Bear soft point. While I have no science to back up my theories I reasoned the heavier weight would cycle the...

    Just curious, for your ak47 or variant rifle to protect your home, family, or land how much ammo do you keep set aside (excluding recreation ammo). Meaning only ammo you would touch if you needed to. Also, what brand?
  13. Firearms General Discussion
    We all know that the best thing would be to just have a massive amount of ammo for any firearm you have but huge stocks of everything aren't always an option. I've come up with two different options that seem to make sense and am curious about others opinion. Option 1. Get a few different...

    Personally I perfer having a supply of Soft Point ammo for the Main Battle Rifles. I reload so for the MBR's and Carbines I full length resize the commercial brass and in some cases kenitic pull bullets and reseat with soft point. One cartridge I have set up with soft point that is not a readily...

    Hello All I've been debating this question for a while in an attempt to reduce my logistical needs. I currently have a variety of handguns in variety of calibers including; .22LR, .380Auto, 9mm, 40S&W, and .45ACP. What I would like to do is get down to two calibers to make ammo...
