    The biggest change I made was dumping the 9mm. I had brief flings with .270 and 7mm REM in the '80's, but had long since consolidated rifle loads. I just saw no reason for the 9mm. .45, .40, .38/357, and .22 covers the pistol range. I do have a .380, but it's strictly for CCW and I don't reload it.

    Best answered in what I moved away from ...

    Sold all my 40, 30.06, 45LC and 380 ... guns and ammo.

    Keep:
    22LR - wife shoots in a league
    9mm and 45 - 40 just didn't make any sense with both of those
    44mag - side arm while pig hunting

    223 - plinking
    308 - hunting
    30-30 - run in my dad's old gun

    12 and 20g - clays and birds.

    Currently I have 5.56, 7.62x39, 308 and 45.

    Will be picking up a new 9mm soon, got enough ammo stockpiled that I need to shoot.

    I don't know that I have moved toward any caliber in particular. I have gotten rid of some and at the same time picked up others. That is not so much because I am moving or leaning toward using them more but because I've acquired another firearm in a different caliber. Right now I have guns in these calibers:

    22S
    22LR
    22 WMR
    25 ACP
    32 ACP
    38 SPL
    9mm
    44 REM MAG
    45 ACP
    5.56 NATO
    30-30 WIN
    308 WIN
    30-06 SPRG
    300 WIN MAG
    35 REM
    7mm Mauser
    7.62x39mm
    7.62x54R
    8mm Mauser
    16 Gauge
    12 Gauge

    I used to have revolvers in 357 MAG but got away from them, maybe I should get another. Also had a semi-auto in 40 S&W but got rid of it and all the ammo for it. Had a 20 gauge shotgun too but got rid of it.

    I have changed my carry pistol from a 9mm to a 45 so in that regard I guess you can say I moved toward 45 caliber.
