Looks like my backorder from Cabela's is going to clear quickly though, based on an e-mail I got today.

Generally speaking, I don't keep a large stock of ammo on hand, but I do like to have a couple of boxes of everything handy.
I agree. This panic hoarding mentality is ridiculous.

How much ammo can be stored in a persons home legally?
I don't want to get in trouble for having a couple of 500 round

There's no law limiting the number of rounds you can have.

A lot of us would be in deep trouble if there were a limit.

In MA, there is a 10k round limit. after that, you need specific storage and an FD permit. Same rules apply for reloading supplies (powder). I think it's 5 lbs.

Got the sights dialed in today and were feeling like the Kings of the Range, until the guy next to us started setting up a tripod and out came a Browning 1919. Holy shit.
