Stockpiling Too Many Types of Survival Ammunition

A couple of days ago my kids and I made a trip to the camp to drop off some Remington 30-30 Core-Lokt 150 grain and Remington 308 Core-Lokt 150 grain. While I was in the closet, I thought, “lets just stack all of the calibers together to see what we have.”

  • 30-30 Winchester – 4 boxes
  • 280 Remington / 7mm Express – 3 boxes
  • 30-06 Springfield – 4 boxes
  • 308 Winchester – 3 boxes
  • 270 Winchester – 2 boxes
  • 22 long rifle – 4 bricks
  • 223 Remington / 5.56mm – between 750 – 1,000 rounds
  • 7.62X39 – around 500 – 750 rounds

*Each “box” holds 20 rounds.

The 30-30, and 22 long rifle was probably the worst. The 30-30 had 3 different brand names and 2 different bullet weights, and the 22 long rifle had 3 different brand names.
