Unless you plan on staying in one place all the time, then stockpiling loads of ammo isnt reasonable. You cant carry loads and loads of ammo plus
water and other supplies....
Thanks for the insult tho, video games NOT in mind, ive done my fair share of combat USMC. And given situations where you are moving around a lot and
scavenging , you are bound to come across places where you do find ammo.
And given you could be in combat situations with people fighting for resources AND food, your more likely to come across ammo that is more common.
Take my advice or not......in the end the decisions are all up to personal preference
But dont insult everyone by assuming they are 16 year old kids who play too much call of duty.
Myself I carry my side arm .40 s and w and an armalite AR-10
No need to get sore, I was just pointing out that you don't "find" ammo, you "take" it or store it.
Besides that, if you were in the Marine Corps, you'd know that having tons of ammo is totally unnecessary. If you're smart you keep a low profile
and use at most a few shots at a time. Combat situations if the # hits the fan wouldn't be the most common thing if you were careful - more like
However, if you were more hip to the gun scene here in the USA you'd know that after .30-06, .308, and .223, the most common calibers are 7.62x54R
and 7.62x39 because of the millions of Mosin Nagants and SKS and AK platform weapons in circulation. All the major ammo makers now offer these
calibers which are produced domestically, in addition to the imports.
You'd have much worse luck "finding" ammo if you chose your AR-10 in .243 (which it is offered in) over something like a Mosin-Nagant.
Aside from that fact, you can get 5 Mosin Nagants and 2500 rounds of ammo for the price of an AR-10. It's the ideal survival weapon - hell you could
bury a bunch of them and not worry about it.
The Mosin-Nagant is also just about indestructible and will work without any servicing or lubrication for years. Try that with the frail Stoner
