At any rate, I think that one factor that should be considered is the possibility that what ammo you have will have to last you decades. As a mater of fact it may have to last your children decades after you are gone. I can’t give you a number, but it’s going to be allot.
    I have not missed that need.
    For 30/30 I have 1,000 of Winni 150 Gr. silver tip, and two restored 1894 Winchester carbines to go with it.
    This state does not allow a rifle for deer hunting, but post SHTF, who cares.
    There are cases of Estate 12 Ga that are assorted bird shot sizes and bird barrels for the 870's and 1187's.
    There is 180 gr silver tip 30/06 for my bolt guns if needed.

    Under a normal social state, countrywide, a 94 Winchester carbine or a mod 12 riot resides in the back of my Grand Cherokee, with a 100 rounds for either.
    When the tensions go up an AK is substituted along with 300 rounds in mags.

    Most here have no idea how much ammo is expended or lost in battle along with mags, guns and people.

    I have hunting rounds (soft tip/ballistic tipped etc.) in every caliber.

    Everyone has to come up with their own number as to how much is enough. In my opinion, I think a better question is what’s the minimum you should have in each primary caliber.

    I think 5,000 rounds is a bare minimum in something like 5.56. 10,000 rounds is a comfortable minimum.

    Stocked up pretty good an ammo for the guns.
    Need to stock up on arrows for the crossbow though. Just in case I need to quietly shoot a deer. Or take out a thug.

    There is no right number, how much can you afford to spend on extra ammo, how much do you want to have to feel comfortable? Do you reload, if so how many supplies do you want to stock? How much hunting and varmint ammo do you need/want? Or should you supplement with alternative hunting methods like snaring, bowhunting etc? There just is the one answer, it's never enough.

    That is very true you will never have enough because you don’t know what truly is going to happen. You may only need a little and traps or you may need thousands of thousands and traps.

    A "can" works well, post SHTF I will build some (illegal as of now), I know how to.

    By that time it won't madder if it is legal or not. Not hard to make.
