This isn’t your typical “how much ammo do you have” question. Instead, I’m asking for the reasoning behind the amount of ammo you have. And, does that reasoning affect how you store your ammo? For example, my “why” is practice/recreational shooting, and WORL situations. Therefore, my “how” is to try and keep my ammo in smaller, easily portable, cans. And, most of it is already in mags or on clips: 800 rounds of 7.62x51 in 40 mags in 10 4-pouch bandoliers; 800 rounds of 7.62x39 on 80 stripper clips; 60 rounds (and one in the chamber) of 9mm in four mags. As a further specific example, included in the previous numbers is a “combo” can with one 4-pouch 7.62x51 bandolier, 12 7.62x39 stripper clips (bandolier or pouches TBD), and a 2-mag belt pouch of 9mm. It is my “the SHTF and I only have time to grab one thing” can. So, are you buying ammo for shooting whenever you find a good price, and then whatever is leftover goes to your heirs after you’re gone? If so, then 30k rounds in your basement in 200 lb containers isn’t a problem. However, if you’re a prepper, how many of those containers can you lug to your vehicle and/or how quickly can load loose rounds into your weapon. Do you just drop by Walmart and buy what you need on your way to the range or hunting spot? Or, are you concerned about a long-term disruption, or eventual ban, in ammunition availability? For the sake of brevity, if your only contribution to the discussion is “you can never have too much” or “better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it” or “that’s a good start” just put this emoji on your post and we’ll all know what you mean.
