6 Must-Have Calibers for the iPrepper

Here are 6 types of ammo that every prepper should be stocked up on.

6 Versatile Ammo Types You Need In Your Arsenal

…..As you read through interchangeable ammo types, some others may come to mind that aren’t listed here.  Do not forget that as a prepper, your primary goals will be survival related.  As such, you will be looking mostly for ammo  that can be used for hunting, home, and self defense.

Other ammo not mentioned in this article may not be as suitable for these purposes, or it may be too hard to get or to expensive to consider for a good sized stockpile.  It is also important to consider how available the ammo will be after a major crisis occurs.

Interchangeable ammo will be almost useless if it is not something popular enough that you can pick it up from some other place as needed.

  • Any gun labeled 7.62 NATO can accept .308 ammunition, but guns chambered for .308 should not fire 7.62 NATO ammunition.  To do this could cause death or serious injury to the shooter…..

9mm, .40 S&W and .45ACP
