I have ammo for all my guns now, but in general I like to stockpile .308, .22 rimfire, .223, and .45/70. The last one is not that common here, but I like having one big caliber rifle with a massive bullet. The others are all very popular calibers and the ammo is barter worthy.

Oddballs in my collection are:

Nifty semi-auto Hakim battle rifle in 8mm Mauser (pretty easy to get the crummy corrosive ammo, still)

7.62X39 Kalashnikov I keep a a thousand rounds. Ammo also easy to find and cheap.

2 pistols...one Czech CZ52 in the 7.62X25 round and an old C96 Mauser pistol rebarreled for the 7.62X25 round. I agree pistols are useless from a practical perspective.

(I just noticed I had a brain fart this morning, so I corrected an error The pistols are in 7.62X25mm, not 39mm as I wrote earlier.)

Do you have Gunz to shoot all the ammo in the collection?

I only have ammo for the guns I shoot. I don't stockpile ammo for any guns I don't own. So, yes.
