    Lets see...

    1 sleeve of small pistol primers (5000)
    3 sleeves of large pistol primers (15000)
    1 sleeve of small rifle (5000)
    2 sleeves of large rifle (10000)
    2 boxes (500 each) .50 BMG (1000)

    4 550 round boes of .22 (2200)


    the only way I can keep tabs on them is to figure out how many primers Ive used up...

    Phew - well - not easy.

    On primer count - plus bought 9mm - and then the huge amount of .22's used - heck, I plumped for 10-12.5k as my amount but - factoring in .22's could well make it higher - plinking is very thirsty on ammo!

    Can't be too far off.

    Mine's counting the 7.62 NATO and .50 BMG at the machinegun range... had to fire it off, or we'd have to count it for turn in!

    Not very much at all due to changing job situation midway through year. 1,500 would be tops IIRC.
    But I'm bad about not logging what I shoot through semi-auto rifles or handguns.

    Let's see....

    10k in 22LR in Mini-mags and the Remington copper-washed stuff mostly. It's amazing how much you can go through in a serious afternoon of plinking to hell and back. :)
    15-20in 9mm. I bought over 15 cases, figure I shot at least 15 by myself and the rest were guests. Even in semi-configuration, the Uzi and a pile of mags eats it by the truckload.
    3k in .45 - I went through a late-year 45ACP kick with the Thompson and the USP and the S&W 4506. I'd have done more if the Thompson didn't keep breaking.
    3.5k in .357 Sig (out of my original 5k order). I think I'm proficient with the caliber now.
    650 for the .45LC out of the Beretta Laramie. Had I got it earlier in the year, this would have been even more expensive.
    500ish 44mag for the Desert Eagle.
    500ish 44special for the wheelguns.
    1500ish .32ACP. So I like my PP. Sue me.
    3kish .223. The AR pistol eats it like there's no tomorrow and I had a RRA to break in with the night vision.
    7k 308. 2k was a couple weeks back with the Vector V51 over three sessions, god bless the $1@ mags you can load up the night before.
    500ish 38 special, for the day I felt like being Mr. Revolver until it was boring.
    400 38 S&W, being Mr. Webley and all.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

    Yes, I spend a lot of time at the range. And thank god for truck freight rates and bulk wholesale rather than UPS.

    About 10,000 45ACP.
    1,000 .223.
    2,000 .308.
    500 7m/m Mag.
    500 12 Ga.
    5 or 6,000 .22.

    That about covers it. (Not counting the 500 rounds of .223 from my friends M249 SAW. Full-auto with an integral suppressor. Very cool toy, but damn it's heavy).
