Cost of your ammo stock?
Ever think about how much you have wrapped up in ammo? Multiple calibers really add up. I have rounds for -
380, 9mm, 357 Sig, 40, 556, 17HMR, 22, 22mag, and 28 gauge AA. That's a lot of $$.

Hence why I keep it simple-22LR, 9mm, 45acp, 5.56 and 12 gauge. That being said I have a few others too but the ones listed above are the only ones I keep factory on hand for. For general shooting I reload everything tho.

I do have a significant investment in tools and training supplies that insure I can properly protect myself and others when necessary as I go through my daily life.
My personal protection is invaluable, is not for sale and is unshakable.

Pales in comparison to what wife has in shoes and purses.
Still I am glad I have the investment in ammo that I do. I believe over time ammo prices will increase and there will be more shortages though maybe not for the next three years or so but you never know. Store ammo in a relatively cool and dry place and it will be good to go. it is not like I am not eventually going to use it. To me peace of mind having it is well worth while. I never want to be in a situation again where I can't shoot my firearms because no body has ammo to sell or it is ridiculously high in price.

I don't keep so much ammo around that I'm concerned about the cost. I made a conscious decision to have just two pistols in 9mm and shoot FMJs at the range and carry JHPs. I also have a Ruger Single Six revolver and shoot LR at the range and keep it loaded with magnums at home. And I have a FireFly and shoot LRs at the range and keep it loaded with lead hollow points at home. I sold my Ruger 357 magnum revolver to finance the purchase of my second 9mm pistol. Those choices made life simpler for me.

I keep around $1000 (give or take) worth of ammo at any given time.
Nothing too crazy, just enough to have fun and feel safe.
9mm, 40s&w, 45 ACP, 12 Gauge, and I suppose some 22lr.

My Dad told me a long, long time ago that if I found something I liked to do, don't start adding up what it costs. That's sound advice.
I've got enough reloading supplies for a long, long time and I can't even imagine how much money is tied up in it.
Then, there's reloaders themselves. I've got 6 mounted on the bench, 4 of which are progressive loaders and 3 that are in quick change mounts. Then there are 4 more under the bench in a bin that are on quick change mounts.
I'm sitting on a fortune.

Otherwise, I have a small quantity of .22 Long Rifle, .22 Magnum and .17 HMR.

I see no one from California has replied... wise choice, since the liberals may attempt an annual ammunition tax... or the dreaded "Arsenal" designation, to prohibit affordable homeowners insurance...

Dollar wise I have no idea.
Weight wise....well, I spread it out a little.
Did give some thought about reducing the calibers that I keep in both guns and ammo. THAT was a stupid idea huh.
If I knew how much I spent on whiskey and ammo I would have to lie about it.
So to answer your question, no!
