The reader may be wondering what the difference is between stockpiling 22 long rifle and stockpiling 22 long rifle for a SHTF / Doomsday event?

When it comes to picking up a few boxes of 22 long rifle for plinking and hunting small game, hopefully one’s life does not depend on their rifle and choice of ammunition. During hard economic times, a lot of families across the nation depending on someone bring home a rabbit or squirrel.

So when it comes to stockpiling 22 long rifle ammunition, is it worth stockpiling slightly more expensive ammo over the cheap stuff?

Buy Cheap Stack Deep
In the prepping community, there is an old saying that goes like this – “Buy cheap and stack deep.” However, chances are the reader could tell stories of cheap magazines, and cheap ammo giving less than desirable results?


What kind of 22 long rifle do I stockpile? This is the only time I personally want to mention brand names. When it comes to my SHTF 22 long rifle ammunition, I stockpile CCI Stinger, CCI Mini-Mag and just about anything made by Federal. Everything is is pretty much plinking ammo.
