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!

Ditto on "yup" (and not gonna post it here in case the Mrs is reading).

But its more than $1 and less than the national debt :)

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

About 300 for shotgun shells (skeet) and 60-70 for .22 and thats it (I reload)

not sure but the last trip to walmart I bought (2) 100 rd. boxes of 9mm and (1) 100 rd. box of .38spl and that was $85.

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.

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.

I had customers put up to 10k on their credit cards for ammo last year.

:rofl: So true. I actually got the call at work today. "Did you know there are over $1000 in ammo purchases on the Visa?!". Ha, yeah I did.

one box of 243 about $16
two 550ct boxes 22lr $19 for 1 15 for the other
two boxes 308 $12 each
two boxes #4 buckshot $5 each
$84 for the year.


2010 had better be a better year for ammo buying! I'm almost out of .223

Should've responded with "No? Did you get me a late Christmas present!?!" :supergrin:

Oh, and I think I spent about 2k on ammo. Don't think I over paid on anything. Maybe a little on a case of Prvi M193 that I picked up, but it was still very reasonable.

Like many gun owners who experienced the AWB, any hint of a democrat majority in congress rings alarm bells. I bought most of my ammo in '05 to '07. I spent very little during the Obama panic. In fact, I consolidated my calibers and sold off much of my stash.
