    Your Emergency Ready, You've PreLoaded Your AR15 Magazines with what AMMO?

    I'm trying to figure out what ammo would be best (overall) to load my magazines, purchase a case of it, and practice with the remainder.

    Scenario:

    You have your AR15 ready for a SHTF/The Collapse/EOW (or whatever). You may have to 'bug out' or stay and defend your turf. What ammo have you preloaded your AR15 magazines with and why.


    Thanks for your input.

    IMI M855. Reasons: it's decently accurate in my rifle, and the best I have...

    Good Factory Ammo milspec ammo. Usually 193. MR isnt a precision rifle, I'm not worried about loads, grains and what not.

    I'm still in the process of collecting ammo and mags for the SHTF. I have a few mags of Hornady TAP FPD and a few mags of Hornady TAP Barrier. All mags are marked on all sides with what kind of ammo they contain. My pistol is loaded with Hornady Critical Defense and I have Winchester PDX1 boxes on the shelf too.

    I'm also looking forward to the responses to this thread...see what everyone here prefers.

    Either NATO spec M193 or M855.

    I don't think anyone taking a 5.56 is gonna complain about whether it was 45 grain or 77 grain. All of it will do the job. The key is to know what you have and the characteristics related to that load in that particular weapon. Knowing that your particular rifle is reliable with that load is first and second, knowing how accurate it can be.

    I have a few magazines (about 5 or so) of 5.56mm TAP T2, but the main share of my ammo stash is IMI M193. It is simply outstanding ammo.
