How much m855 is enough to stockpile when the ATF bans it next month?

ALL OF THE AMMO!!!
Seriously? I think maybe I have four magazines of green tip left. I go through it when I practice and could not possibly care less, personally.
However, that being said, it is important we understand that just because WE can't care less about a particular round, endorsing the ATF's "we make the rules and enforce them as law" policy should not be allowed to continue. Because first they set a precedent with things we DON'T care about, so that when they finally get around to the things we DO care about, it's too late, because the precedent has been set.
That was the plan of the 1994 AWB, and California's "junk guns and saturday night special" laws, and the reasoning behind how easily the Hughes Amendment was allowed to stay in the FOPA of 1986. Because we're lulled into a false sense of complacency by only going after niche firearms and accessories "nobody seems to care about," BEFORE they cut our throats.
"...and by the time they came for me, there was no one left to stand up."
You can bet your last dollar that's the plan. Divide and conquer, the death of a thousand cuts, the boiling the frog in water a degree at a time -- our rights are usurped incrementally, and THIS BAN is merely one of the increments.

Obama is doing all he can to destroy the 2nd Amendment, and America in general. He is the first President that truly hates this country. Some have been indifferent, but he seems to do everything he can, in a sneaky way, to hurt our freedoms and people.
Join the NRA and GOA if you haven't already. Banning M855 and 7N6, along with banning many firearms from being imported and even some American made ones from being brought back to the US, such as over 1 million M1 Garands, are just the tips of the icebergs people.
Obama is the most antigun President in history by far, and his next two years will be his worst since he or other Democrats are not up for re-election for a while.

20,000 bullets should be enough.
i just picked up 20,000 bullets. i have about 2800 left but i'm gonna stop using these indefinitely and switch back to the M193 type.
oh btw i mean bullet as reloading component... cheaper to buy bullets than live ammo. if you're buying ammo you'd need 20k rounds and that would cost thousands of dollars.Source(s): its because of all the gun ban people that i'm poor, i can't save any money when they make me blow a ton of it every couple months to preserve my freedoms!

M855 is a terrible choice for defense. So not only do I not stockpile it, I won't even buy it. It's shining point is barrier penetration. As far as anti-personnel use goes the M193 is FAR superior. Though Hornady 75 grain TAP is even better.

There's no such thing as having too much ammo.

I'm not stockpiling it at all, ban or no.
Simple fact is, both of those rounds are nearly obsolete compared to what is available in the civilian market. Most rifle rounds can penetrate soft body armor without any issues, even without a steel penetrator, and numerous rounds are more effective in tissue than green tips when considering bullet construction and caliber. They certainly aren't the 'end all' best at anything other than being cheap/available.

If I was panicked over ammo, I would be stocking up on powder/primer/bullets.
If you have the nutters itch to stockpile, look at:
~$0.09/bullet. You could reload ammo for $0.20/round
