    This is exactly correct.
    It is always better to have and not need than to need and not have.

    My only dilemma now is how much ammo I need to have.
    I figure 500 or so rounds for anything chambered in a standard US military round (9mm 45ACP .223 .308 .30-06) and 12 gauge, as this will always be the most common ammo. Chances are, before you go through that 500 rounds, you will either have captured more, or you will be dead.

    I'd go with a couple thousand just to be safe. You need to practice occasionally to keep those skills sharp.

    Now, if we're talking match-grade ammo that's a different kettle of fish...but then again match-grade is pretty much a waste in an AK anyway.

    I also thought 500 rounds would do - but as a stash. Range ammo would be over and above that. But at home, I've got a little over 500 rounds. I also agree that if I have to use all that ammo, I'm likely to be dead before I'm out of bullets.

    Oh and I meant 500 for the 9mm and another 500 for the AK.

    Actually there is.


    Ammunition To Go : 100rds - 7.62x54R Silver Bear 203gr. SP Ammo [a754spn] - $44.95


    But why one would put it in a 5 moa carbine is beyond me.

    I always have on hand 2500 rounds for each of my rifles, 1000 rounds for each of my pistols.

    If I use any, it is immediatly replaced.

    The AK is 7.62x39....

    And this isnt what most people would call 'match grade' ammo. There are no 'match grade' 0.311" bullets for the x39 round. You CAN get them for the x54 round, but they are too heavy to use in an AK.

    I tire of amateurs and the ignorant telling me what I NEED. People like you are why I NEED weapons suitable for dealing with those who want to tell others how to live
