    I added it up the other day and I have about 15,000 rounds handy. I've heard of people who have 100K or more... I suppose I might go nuts like that if I lived in a truly rural area, but I'm more rural-adjacent.

    In the next month I'm going to double that stash. WalMart has a kick ass special on Winchester Xpert .22, I'm looking forward to flushing $380 down that particular toilet.

    I want to pick up some of those 22 tracer rounds I've seen online for no reason other than shits and giggles.

    I horde the shit outta 22 ammo, and it's what I usually end up shooting the most of.

    The idea that there might be a lead ban on ammo (a la CA) has me more worried in the immediate future than most other things, so I'm really stocking up at the moment.

    I have about 2,000 rounds of Federal .22

    The only .22 I have is a 10/22. I suppose if I had a .22 pistol and/or a dedicated .22 upper for one of the ARs I would probably shoot it more and keep more on hand.

    I have about ~12k. Mostly Federal bulk since that's what my 10/22 likes but a lot of MiniMag as well.

    If you like the cheap stuff just go to Wal-Mart. Dick's has the best price locally for federal champ blue box. :dunno:

    do AR conversions really work? or is it better to get a dedicated upper?

    my ciener hiccuped pretty badly for the first two or 3 mags and since then it runs 100%. you can polish it or run a few mags through it, up to you.
