How much Shotgun ammo do you keep on hand?

I have been stocking up on ammo for several years. People use to give me crap about stocking up on 22lr but now they dont.

Any way lately I have been stocking up on 12ga because its price has not changed as much when compared to other rounds.

So the question is how much do you think makes a good starting point? I have found that I can put a little under 300 rounds in a 50 caliber ammo can. I Currently have an ammo can of bird shot and been working on an ammo can of buck shot, next is slugs. I also have about 700 rounds of random target loads just for practicing.

How much do you think would be a good starting point incase 12ga ever does what Rimfire ammo did and basically dries up?

p.s. What is a good inexpensive slug in 2 3/4 inch 12ga? It will be shot from smooth bore barrels.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
