The "Big 12" List. (My own term)American use ammunition that is so historically established, its continued use and legacy is ASSURED for American perpetuity. Buying anything else is simply shortchanging your posterity. (Unless you reload, OR stock in a LIFETIME supply of said ammunition, including training rounds.) Here we go...........1. .22 LR2. .38 special3. .357 magnum4. .45 ACP5. .45 Colt6. . 223 / 5.56 Nato7. .30-.308. .30-.069. 7.62 x 3910. .308 / 7.62 Nato11. 20 gauge shotgun12. 12 gauge shotgunOh, and for my friend who purchased a .45GAP pistol, I TOLD YOU SO.I also won't discuss my friend who bought an MAS-49 rifle that shoots 7.5 x 54 French. Good luck.
