    Add 9mm to the top of your list. Also any non standard round like 6.5 creed more. 45-70 government etc. Any rounds that will be in production run for the government will be more available. All this can be seen plainly right now at any LGS.

    9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 acp for pistol and 5.56, 7.62 x 39mm, and .308 (7.62 NATO).

    These are the 3 most popular firearms in their respective categories. The more popular the firearm caliber, the more ammunition for them will be sought after.

    I think we all over estimate the value of ammo after SHTF. Please note I didn't say during, but after. Based on the volume of gun owners, sheer volume of their ammo hoards, add to that the vast supplies of the regimes....after SHTF I believe there will be ammo found just about anywhere you are free to look and in bulk.

    One caliber that may be overlooked is 38/357. The vast majority of revolvers covet this caliber, and what firearm will the surviving non gun owner pick up to carry? I'll think they'll take revolvers over hi cap 9mms and 45s all day.

    Pretty sure we're all in agreement on the rifle rounds 5.56, 7.62x39, 7.62x51. Handgun rounds however I see it like this: 9x19mm, .380ACP, .45ACP. I put the .380 ahead of the .45 due to all those people that ran out and bought .380 when the manufacturers flooded the market with pocket pistols. It's the only pistol round that is still an issue getting here.

    5.56
    .223
    9mm
    380
    7.62X39
    .45 acp

    Listed .223 and 5.56 on different lines because they are different 5.56 will be first choice of the two
    7.62X39 down lower because so much of it is in stock pile already
    Most gun owners have a .45
    380 one of the largest sell auto
    9mm well Da
    The 38/357 will be in there some where but you said 6.
