Just curious. Where did you find this list of top selling ammo?

I see a high probability of this AR-15 armed team being overrun by AK armed adversaries after their ARs all jam. But hey, at least they'll have commonality with their clubs….

I could be full of crap, but it seems to me North American Rifleman, and sometimes other publications, come out with "top 5/10 most popular rifle rounds in America" or "...pistol rounds in America." The one article I think I remember reading was based on sales volume, IIRC.

How about a more practical reason: For whatever reason, you need to reach for your firearm. You're in a hurry, you're probably panicked, lighting conditions may not be great. This is not a good time to play, "Which ammo goes with which magazine goes with which firearm?" You need to know the gun, know the location, know the condition.

Too many preppers make the mistake of confusing their hobby (gun collection) with their duty (preparation and self defense). This isn't a video game where you hit the "A button" to toggle between a small arsenal.

A man only needs one or two guns for home and personal defense - a handgun for CCW and an optional long gun for home defense. The gun(s) should always be cleaned and in good working order, and stored in the same location in the same condition. Mags should always be loaded, ammo should always be stocked. Backup or redundant guns should be the same model and/or utilize the same caliber and same magazines.

All other hobby guns and ammo should be locked and unloaded and stored separately.

I just Googled something like "Ammo sales USA" or something similar. I think the results were for 2013, and after looking at it quickly again I realize it may have been specific to a specific ammo wholesaler, so perhaps it wasn't the most reliable information. But if those (.22lr, 5.56, .223, 9mm, .45, and .40S&W) aren't the top 6 they still definitely have to all be in the top 10.

I don't see how what a specific individual does only for himself is relevant to this topic, which is about Firearm Commonality for planned squads in a potential PAW.

If we are talking about bad rifle stereotypes, The AR team will have plenty of time to escape when their rifles jam, since the AK team will need to get within 50 yards before they are even able to hit their intended targets. :awesome:
