    Are there any really anal people on here who keep track of how much money they spend on ammo? Anyone with a ballpark figure? A buddy of mine with 25+ guns said he is nearly sure he dropped over 5k on ammo in 2009. That's a nice kick to the groin!

    I was still running off the case of 9mm I bought last year so I grabbed around 7 boxes of .40(gave 4 of the 7 to a friend in NY) and another 100 JHP pack and maybe $25 worth of .22 ammo thats about it. and I have more left for this year also. hopefully I can buy another case :) .

    Not much because I refused to buy overpriced ammo. Probably no more than $300 on 9mm and 22lr

    Howdy,

    +1.:steamed:

    I only bought a little ammo in '09. Mainly bought .22LR.

    I reload so I do not need any blastin' aammo.:supergrin:

    Also hard to buy primers at $50/box when I have 20,000 that I paid $20/box for. I did buy 2,000 SRM primers that I found for 28.99/box and another 2,000 SP that I found for $31.00/box.:supergrin:

    I did buy 12ga BS at WalMart but it was about the same price as it was 2 years ago.

    Paul

    I didn't keep track. It scares me. Your post is making me think about it though.
    If I didn't buy ammo I could certainly afford the top of the line 1911's several times.
    Unfortunately I like to shoot guns... a lot.

    Not very much during the Obama-inspired ammo rush.

    Two, three years prior to that...alot.

    Amen bro.
    But I didn't spend enough. Cause I have money in my pocket and still can't find the ammo to buy!:crying:
    Sure I can, have and will buy on the web but I don't have THAT many $ left over.:upeyes: (And she sees that!)

    hst 100rds = 65 or so
    georgia canned heat = 150 or so
    georgia gd = 25
    700 rds 7.62x39 = 200

    total = somewhere around 440

    I still have some of the canned heat and 80 or so rds of the hsts so.

    I guess it shows me I didnt get to the range enough cause I only used around 700 rds of 7.62x39. I defintely need to get to the range more with my 40. I figure I average about a 100 rds thru the 40 and 100 rds thru the 7.62x39 per range visit. Maybe a range visit every other month = 600 rds of 7.62x39 per year = 168 per year and 40sw 600rds = 180. Total target ammo would be 348. If I went 1x per month it would prolly not be nice economically as I currently only make 50k a year and am the sole provider for family of 4... WHAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

    Let me see... I bought lots of .22 LR because I really enjoy shooting .22 LR and I really enjoy watching my children shoot .22 LR rifles and pistols. I bought a G-22 for SD/HD and ended up buying lots of .40 S&W ammo with which to confirm the functional reliability of the G-22 as well as build familiarity and expertise in using it. I bought a S&W 625-2 which necessitated the purchase of .45 ACP ammo so that the 625 would not be a safe-queen. I bought a Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 in (surprise) .45 ACP so I bought more .45 ACP ammo so that I could enjoy shooting the 1911. I also bought .30 bullets for my rifles so that I could load ammo for local vintage military rifle matches. So... this past year... I guess I spent some money on ammo. And, in just a few more weeks, I will be buying a little M-2 ball as I want to make sure that there is sufficient ammunition for my use in my M-1's. Sincerely. Brucev.
