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.
