Just wondering what kind of ammo you all tend to stockpile. My general opinion is that ammo is like money or good looks - one really can't have too much of it.

Although it varies quite a bit, my personal stash currently looks something like this:

9mm Luger (for XD9) - about 6000 rounds of various weights and manufacture. Most of this was from a very favorable trade I recently made.

.45 ACP (for SIG P220) - about 1500 rounds, mostly 230 gr. hardball purchased at the last gun show that rolled through Salt Lake.

.223 Rem (for Olympic Arms 16" AR15) - about 1200 rounds, mostly 69 gr. Federal Gold Medal Match and remanufactured 55 gr. PSPs. Also a few other assorted loads.

.30-06 Springfield (for Weatherby Vanguard) - only about 30 rounds, but this one doesn't get shot much.

.22 (for .22 Marlin semi-auto) - about 500 rounds of value ammo.

12 ga. birdshot (for Winchester 1300 Ranger) - about 750 rounds, mostly 7.5 and 8 shot, purchased whenever it goes on sale.

12 ga. buckshot (for Winchester 1300 Defender) - about 20 rounds.

12 ga. slugs (for Winchester 1300 Defender) - about 600 rounds, also procured in aforementioned trade.

20 ga birdshot (for Mossberg) - about 200 rounds, mostly 7.5 shot.

So, yeah - I think I'm going to need a special room in the basement for gun safes and ammo cans soon. It just feels good to have it.

What do you guys think of Wolf ammo for your pistols? Anyone have any stong opinions one way or another?

Take Care,
Vic

I have pistols and carbine types that love Wolf 9mm.
MAK-90, Saiga and CZ-527 that shoots Wolf 7.62x39.
Mosins that shoots Wolf 7.62x54r.
A M1 Carbine that shoots Wolf .30 carbine.
2 AR-15s that shoots Wolf .223.
I don't have any broken extractors, don't smell anything funny and cleaning is the same as any other ammo 8) I am a recreational shooter and I can't get enough of the stuff.

Yea, the ammobros are reloads.
Yes, i think they are pretty good.
Yes, for me, they were pretty consistent, perhaps even producing tighter groups than the wwb i normally shoot.
About as dirty as wwb... perhaps a little cleaner even.

also, they are TMJ's not FMJ's. Which i think means that even the base is enclosed.

I see the guys from AmmoBros at the local gun show and they are a family operated business, and pretty nice guys. Fair on pricing and stands behind his product. WHen i first met him, he offered to exchange his ammobros brand ammo for any other he carried if i found that they were unsatisfactory. He has a storefront in cerritos/artesia area.

Hit Wally World to restock a little, ended up on midnights last night. Called them at 1:30am, asked for sports dept. lady said they were out to lunch, so I ended up w/manager who knew nothing about what, how, or where they had ammo. They did tell me they don't sell any after 10:00pm or before 7:00am. Thought that was pretty odd.



Back to around 350rnds 165gr. wwb fmj
and 12rnds. 155gr hornady tap


Having trouble finding anyone local selling Gold Dots.

I have 1000 rounds of 165gr. Remington el cheapo ammo.
40 rounds of 40SW. 165gr. Golden Saber
I have 500 rounds of 7.62x39 HP WOLF.
I have exactly 5 rounds of .380 Auto.
I have exactly 0 rounds of .357/.38 special for my Taurus..which makes it a big paperweight when SHTF/Home defense/I got a bear in the house. I don't expect a bear in the middle of a city and value my eardrums too choose the .357 over the 40SW. But I really should stock up some ammo for the big ol wheelgun. Still haven't cleaned my SKS...so I'll be at 500 rounds of 7.62 for a while. Maybe i'll buy some if theres a big sale AND some of the online vendors have wolf stocked. It seems to be a scarce commodity nowadays.

EDIT: I just ordered more ammo. I finally found 7.62x39 ammo 154gr. SP at sportsmansguide.com. I paid $104 for 1k rounds, w. shipping. Not too shabby. Its my stockpile for WWIII
