Some day I will probably need to stop and run through what I have without getting any more ammo or components. My plans are to either retire to VT/NH/ME or WA/OR.I was always told if you dont need a fork lift to move it or you can count it you dont have enough.
The former would kind of suck with the couple van loads or small box truck just for my gun and hunting stuff. The later would REALLY suck taking all that cross country. A guesstimate, I’ve probably got like 500-700# of bullets (works out to 35-40k 115gr .355s). Not including cases. Commercial ammo. A safe. The guns. Tree stand. Climber. Clothes. Bench. Etc.
I mean some I’ll use as an excuse to buy new and better. I doubt I’ll move my safe. Probably just buy one there and move in to it as I plan to buy a place prior to retirement. Not buy, sell and move in one trip.
But no way I am having movers move my guns, ammo, and reloading stuff. Even without the bench, shelves (taken apart), and safe, I doubt my bins of ammo, gun stuff, hunting stuff, and components could actually fit in a minivan. Maybe, but I wouldn’t put money on it.
Not that I’ll just shoot through everything. But I probably won’t be jumping on bullet deals too good to pass up for a few years before hand. If I can shoot 2000 rounds year and not buy bullets, that’s probably 20-30# a year I don’t have to move. If I can be an over achiever and hit 4k a year, that’s more like 40-60#.
I’ll plan to shoot a LOT of .45acp in advance…
