Nice my ammo "stash" pales in comparison. I probably have close to 1k rounds per caliber I have except for 7mm Mauser and .380auto.

hOW'S the trajectory/range on that .450 Bushy? Everytime I see one I want to buy it
Only shot it at 100 yards, and it is dead on at 100. From what I hear, it is 4" low at 200 and 12" low at 300. 250 grains at 2250fps. So basically at 300 yards it is more powerful than a .45 ACP at point blank range.

How long have you been buying/storing/making ammo?
I guess the majority of my stash came in the past year and a half.

I never really had to store ammo as it was always readily available. If I wanted to go shoot 1000 rounds that week, I just went to the local gun store and picked up some American Eagle for $200 a case of 1000, or Wolf for $120 per case of 1000; even Walmart back then had stuff readily available and cheaper than everyone else!

Then as time went by I noticed the availability of ammo was less and less, so starting about a year and half ago, instead of just picking up just enough to shoot each ammo purchase, I decided each visit to buy double the amount I plan to shoot. Shoot half and store half.

Any rough calculation of the value?
Interestingly, I'd imagine that figure has grown more in the past 12 months than almost any other investment around.
