Yup WalMart has always been the way to go when they have it in stock. They haven't had shit for .223 in months though. .40 and .45 are usually around but not in the best bang for the buck bulk packs. Even the 50 round Winchester boxes aren't too badly priced though.

If you stopped target shooting for the fun of it, how much would you really need to have for hunting etc to get you by for 30 years, that is the question,

I am not sure that reloading equipment would be any less likely to be scrutinized, when it comes to the consumables, I.E. powder primers casings etc.
Some things ive learner about gun ownetship
1. You can never own to many firearms
2. You can never own to much ammo

What I'm worried about is my children and grandchildren not getting to enjoy the hobby you and I enjoy . This is the reason I've gone over saving my lifetime supply.

Default Long Term Storage?

This is a good conversation to have about long term storage. If you watch you tube video's about cache tubes, you will see several tries at vacuum wrapping ammo that the vac pacs fail after only one year.

I have on thanksgiving received some ammo from a realative who had it in their house stored in a plastic container, since the mid 80's I know this because I know who owened the rifles, there were .357, 30-30 and 30-06, even though they were stored inside the cartridges had green electrolasis on them and fouling on the copper jackets. fired off 10 seperate rounds, 2 did not go off.
If any one has an idea for perminent cartridge storage, I would like to here it.

Dessicant and then vacuum wrapping. Commies must have figured out a way, I've had some 60 year old 'ham cans' of 7.62x54r that looked new and shot just fine.
