Does commercial ammo availability drive you caliber choice?

How much does commercial availability of loaded ammo drive your decision to use a caliber? Do you make that choice based on either reloading or not reloading. Or do you make that choice if you happen to lose your ammo on a trip and need to buy or borrow?

    Don't reload, so yup. Gotta buy guns that I can get ammo for. I'd like to get into reloading eventually, but there's no public ranges where I live so I don't really get a chance to shoot as much as I'd like to.

    I reload so not in the least. Current shortages are making me think about keep a popular caliber rifle around but I'm hoping the current mania subsides before I buy one.
