A solution looking for a problem. Stay with the ammo you can find in any back woods hickey sticks store. 22, 223, 308, 300Win, 9mm , 40S&W and 12 gauge first choice being military and always being around somewhere. 243, 270 , 30/06 and 410 2nd choice. Somebody will chirp if the 338 Lapua military round iis mentioned. So I won't say anything about it.

B&D, you keep saying to stick with the popular calibers, but in fact most cartridges are derived from something else and in a pinch you can usually form your own cases. For example, you can make .22-250 cases from .308, even though .22-250 is actually derived from .250 Savage. It's pretty common to make 7.7 Japanese from .30-06, even though the head dimensions are different. .204 Ruger is a bit of an exception, because Ruger and Hornady chose to base it on the .222 Remington Magnum, an essentially obsolete cartridge. The ironic thing here is that the success of the .204 will give .222 Rem Mag owners a guaranteed source of brass. I wouldn't be surprised to see the .204 case catch on as a basis for new wildcats.

Mark as usuall I agree with you 99.9% or more. I just thinking of the majority of persons who don't reload or are not the technical type to re-work existing brass. I forgot to add the 38/357 and the 45 to the 2nd choice list.

I've also always believed in buying popular calibers, but's hard to find ammo for 9mm,.45, .223, etc. Seems like gun shops are always sold out of the common stuff and its all back ordered. Now might be a good time to own a .204, 25-06, or some other less popular caliber gun.

Luckily, I reload, but have found primers are hard to come by now as well. Hopefully, guns and gun violence find their way off the news and all this gun craziness subsides.
