Do any of you consolidate calibers?

What I mean is I used to shoot a lot of different calibers (22-250, 7.62x56 and 7.62 x 39, . 32, .40, .17, 16 gauge, 8mm, etc).

The space in the safe was getting less and less and I grabbed the wrong rounds one day and had to buy some at the range. Got .40 cal instead of .45.

So now I have only 12g, .308, 5.56, 9mm and .45. and a .22.

This has made is much easier to grab a box and go, and free'd up some room and was easy to get ammo at the local sporting goods store and Walmart.

Have you shrunken your collection if different guns and calibers?

Down to .17HMR and 30-06. Used to shoot .22, 9mm, .45ACP, and 12GA. Then I had kids traded guns for diapers. Want to trade the .17 for a 6.5 someday (still be at only two calibers).

I havent "shrunken" my collection, but I have shrunken my "Go to" weapons. I used to have .40, 10mm, 9mm, .357, .44 mag, 12 gauge, and .45 acp. Now, I only have 9mm, .45 acp, 5.56, and .44mag.

Mine was a Dan Wesson 644 44 Mag wheelgun. 8.5 inch rib vented barrel, stainless finish. Quite nice, but I'd have to ace bandage my wrist after putting a box though it. Worst part is after about 18 rounds I couldn't hit the side of a barn with it.

I want enlarge my collection, so if you have something you'd like to sell...

I only have three pieces, and I can't possibly confuse the ammo. (.20gauge, 8mm rifle, 7.62 handgun).

I got a national match as well, but customized it at Tanks Rifles.

Put a Kreiger barrel on it, bedded it, and put the McMillan stock.

Shoots like a dream.

You got a nice basic set of what I consider the prime calibers.

I have found the people here to be very helpful and informative.

If you swap any parts, consider Smith Enterprises and Sadlak.

Especially Sadlak. Both have contracts with the gub-ment for the scout sniper rifles for the war.

When you call Sadlak, you get the owner, Mike Sadlak on the phone. He's informative and his parts are the shizzle.

I have .357/.38, .40. .22, .222, .223 (5.56mm), .243, .257 Weatherby, .30-30, 7mm Mauser, 12 ga and 20 ga. I only have to watch when I take the AR and the .222 out. I rarely shoot them at the same time because of the difference in round appearance is slight. Other than that I really have no problem.

No I don't, I purchased a heavy work table to do my reloads and as an option I bought the roller chest that slides under it. Holds all the gunsmith tools, all the reloading equipment and that just on one side.
Other side holds all the powder, bullets, and brass, plus ammo cans of each type of round.
.22, .222, .223, .44 mag, 30-30, 30-06, .308, 300 win mag, 7mm mag, .410, 12 gauge shot/sabot rounds-----some of which is going to tacomaman.

i only have 5 guns...2 12ga 2 .40 and 1 .22

i usually take both .40 and the .22 with me when i go to the range so i dont mix up ammo...plus those are pretty easy to differentiate between

7.62x63mm, 7.62x51mm, 5.56x45, .308, 12Gg.,.22. Unbuilt FAL so another 7.62x51mm, and an M4 clone on the way so a second 5.56x45mm. Some calibers just sound cooler in metric, lol.
