    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...

    From a prepping point of view, should "buy cheap and stack deep" apply to 22 long rifle? What kind of accuracy could we expect to see between cheap and expensive 22 long rifle? I decided to put those questions to a test at a local sand pit. My oldest son brought his new Remington model 597...

    I see these two types of ammo frequently online at good deals. Being cheap steel cased Russian made Wolf ammo, we should all have SOME laying around. Now, just wondering, what is the difference between these two kinds of ammo? I know the "Polyformance" has a bi-metal jacket - a blend of copper...

    On May 4th, I checked out ammoseek.com for 5.56 ammo deals. They listed "By Texans For Texans" as being the cheapest with a price of 67 bucks per hundred for FMJ. I ordered 300 rounds for 222 bucks total. Their site said they had 147 "battle packs" in stock at the time. Today, I got an e-mail...

    Folks, was just curious to see if the AK people had any preference between these types of ammo and why.

    This is an opinion piece on the 300 Blackout. A couple of days ago I posted a question about Palmetto State Armory on the survivalistboards facebook page. There were several suggestions to go with the 300 blackout instead of the 223/5.56mm. This is my reply to those suggestions...

    While reviewing my 22 long rifle stockpile last night, I realized that I am mostly buying 2 brand names - Federal and 1 box of Winchester. The next couple of bricks I buy will probably be Remington and a box of Winchester. How my preps are setup @ 75% of my ammunition at stored at home. @ 25%...

    Looking to expand my stockpile of 223, so who has the best deals on brass cased ammo? Over the past few years I have been buying Monarch 223 from Academy sports and outdoors. Monarch is something like $4.89 for a box of 20 but is steel cased. After taking inventory last weekend I decided I...

    Hello Forum, I am trying to pick up my basic SHTF firearms, and could use some advice, since it's free and there is a bunch going on in this forum I hope it's not a bother. :cool: I currently have the Ruger SR9c ordered, in black with the extended clip to have the same capacity and make it...

    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...

    I got the itch to buy more ammo. Before buying more, I thought I'd look at what I had around already. Most of my ammo is stored in 50 cal cans. They have been stored in a nice dry area for 3 years and in a non-climate controlled basement for a year. hunting grade ammo: All looked as good as...

    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...

    So I know it has been discussed but I was unable to find the thread that contains the info I'm seeking. I read on these boards that Wolf or Tula is fine for target shooting but not in a shtf situation. Can someone explain why? I, like a lot of people are on a budget, therefore, I have to buy...

    Any rifles that shoot all three cartridges? Any revolvers?

    I am thinking of getting a .22 long rifle. I want it for target shooting and small game. My question is.... semi auto, lever action or bolt, which do you prefer? Also what would be the advantages or disadvantages to a .17? I live in Florida so most of our areas are scrubb palmetto and pine. I...

    Which do you use in your SHTF AK or SKS hollow point, soft point or ball. I am buying wolf hollow point ammo and keep at least four mags loaded with it all the time.

    I know I am going to open up a can of worms on this thread, but here it goes anyways...I see alot of people, myself in my early days of prepping trying to start their own armory. Before I moved my stuff to a different location I had more than some armories. 1st: I strongly believe that when...

    I was curious on other members thoughts were about reloading prior to and after SHTF for defense and barter. I have been stockpiling reloading supplies the last 14 months and especially the last 2 months as I was informed on 1/1/2012 prices are going up on factory made ammo and reloading...

    Hello All, I recently realized I made a made a huge BOO BOO. I have 500 rounds Russian 7.62x39 and 1000 rounds CCI 22lr in a room I smoke in. This ammo has been in here for about 9 months. I should have put the ammo in ammo cans, but I forgot about it. Will this make the ammo dangerous or...
