Comment #2: Jacketed Hollow Points (308) for medium to long range, .223 for edc, 2 3/4-3 inch shotshell number 4 and 45 caliber. Don’t buy firearms that require exotics as those rounds will be rare in a teotwawki circumstance.
Comment #3: I prefer the idea of keeping multiple guns of the same caliber, that way your guns can be distributed to those around you that need them, you can all carry a portion of the ammo, and all the ammo is usable by all the weapons.
Comment #4: Any ammo that you’re going to buy in bulk should be test fired in the weapon. Most weapons will perform differently with different ammo. Buy what functions best. I practice with cheap ammo because of cost and the malfunction drills are good practice. For SHTF I buy the best quality that I know is reliable. What’s expensive today could be priceless tomorrow.
