Q1. If you are a reloader your most vulnerable supply is power and primers. How much do you want on hand to feel comfortable? I understand there is no good answer and that it is a individual preference, I'm just interested in your preference for lbs of powder and number of small and large primers?

Q2. For calibers you don't reload or want for possible barde, how much is enough for you to feel comfortable. Like above there is no good answer, its just personal preference.

At this time I've yet to begin reloading due to the problems we all faced since December. Cartridges on hand are 3k per caliber. Most of that is to cushion any price spike like we have had. I was lucky and not smart and picked that up a week after the last election. A county in my area started talking of a bullet tax and that motivated me to dig in and buy big.

My answer to your question is simple, . . . have on hand what YOU can comfortably afford.

The same goes for fuel, . . . food, . . . tools, . . . medicine, . . . batteries, . . . clothing, . . . etc.

Personally I have several thousand rounds of loaded ammo, . . . and stuff to replace all of it other than the .22 rimfire if I had to.

Remember, . . . prepping is as much (maybe even more) to just get us through that "event", . . . than to figure you will have enough ___________ to last you a full life time after the event happens.

Most of us are going to remember after the "event" how things used to be, . . . and we are going to try to get them back to "the good old days", . . . and at that time, hopefully, you can start prepping for another, newer "event".

At least that is the strategy I am following.

May God bless,
