Thread: Standardizing on Calibres

    Standardizing on Calibres

    I've given thought to standardizing the calibres that I use, instead of buying one of each calibre, and ending up with all different types of ammo.

    Do you guys standardize, or are you ammo omnivores? If you've standardized, what did you decide on, and why?
    Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so.

    I'll collect anything

    I have a wide variety of calibers but it seems the last few purchases have been .45, future purchases will probably be determined the deal and the bling factor--just can't say no to the pretty ones.

    Many years ago, I was standardized on the .45ACP and 5.56x45mm.

    But as time went by and firearms got sold/bought, it's no longer standardized and is now all over the place in terms of caliber.

    I have standardized on 9mm and 45 ACP in my autos. Between them, and if you select your defensive ammo carefully, they can handle most personal defense situations. For my revolvers, 38 Special /357 Magnum and 44 Magnum. Again, they can handle most personal defense situations as well as defense against four legged predators where I live.

    Rifle, pretty much 5.56mm/.223. Reason for my selection is that .45 ACP and 9mm are readily available anywhere as well as 38 Special and 357 Magnum. This also applies to 5.56mm, well it used to anyway. 5.56mm Mil Spec ammo is almost impossible to get nowadays and if you can find it, its expensive.

    Another reason I have kept my calibers to a few, helps keep the reloading components I have to stock to a minimum

    I to am into standardizing. I just can't.

    I like to buy different calibers. It seems to be a good excuse to but a new gun. Like I don't have a 357 sig. I really need to get one of those. :)

  9. Oh ya I've standardized on .45, .40, .357 Mag, 9mm and .32.

    And .38 Special (Don't know how I forgot my 1953 Colt Official Police with Original Receipt for $75.00)
