    I actually haven't bought any ammo in a long time. The last time I took count, I came in at just over 9k rounds with 7k of it being 5.56

    lol, not really. I just know when I get really low.

    I'm somewhere 10-15k???? I reload 1-2 times a month anywhere from 2-5k rounds a session depends on how I feel or if I can keep my wife off my back.

    If I had a reloading setup, I would do the same and not worry about #s.

    Ya, I have buddies that actually do that too. The guy I bought my last pistol from had "exact" round count and when and where, etc. lol

    I actually made a feeble attempt at it. I have a reloading "log" book. But I gave up after I kept putting off how much I reloaded. I just use it to journal my load data now and to keep score of "cricket" with my dart board when I have friends over. lol

    I have a few hundred .223, about 500 .45 and 20 or so BMG.

    I figure if I need 30,000 rounds of ammo, I've got a problem that 30,000 rounds of ammo isn't going to solve.

    it's not that I need that much to "solve problems". I shoot competitively in a few disciplines. Some of us have managed to find other uses for our guns outside of just self defense. :)

    My nga. :wavey:

    Well the spreadsheet part, not the accountant.

    I've been a little lazy updating my spreadsheet lately. Do you also separate each caliber into brand/type? I don't get that detailed with mine, but I've seen it done.

    I know competitive shooters pour through ammo. I meant the people that have stockpiled ammo for when "they" come to get "us".

    That should be easy to count and put into spreadsheet form.

    I keep buying a case of surplus 5.45 every few weeks cause I know its going to dry up eventually. :wtc:

    On the upside I've only shot about a case of 5.45 since the end of summer and have bought several cases in addition to the several I already had.
