    I was updating my reloading spread sheet and went back a couple of years to look at the volume loaded and guns used. I started keeping records in March of '04, and had a 13 month break with a move. Had loaded just over 9,000 at that time. Got the press set up again in '05 and ran some rifle rounds. Then bought a sig 220 in Dec '05. Followed by a SA Black Stainless and S&W1911PD in early '06.

    Once I got into the .45 I started loading a bit more. At the end of '05 I had 11,000 loaded. At the end of '06 35,000 loaded. I bought an Ed Brown Exec Target and Les Baer PII. Just finished up with 69,900 today. I have a few stockpiled right now with the bad weather. I've been loading a bunch of 9mm to feed the new S&W 952-2 and the reconditioned BHP.

    I'm starting to show some wear on the LnL.

    LOL - it's kind of fun to keep the numbers and look back at them. I just updated my spreadsheet over the christmas break to break it down by caliber, by year, etc. I"m nowhere near your league but I did the following:

    2005 - 2700 Rounds Total
    2006 - 5250 Rounds Total
    2007 - 5020 Rounds Total (unless I load some more today. :) )

    Figuring an average savings of $5 per box (really low estimate given .50 S&W, etc.) I figure I've saved $1297 so my equipment is definately paid for. :)

    By Caliber:

    .223 Rem: 1600
    .45 ACP: 8400
    .45 LC 800
    45/70 400
    .50 S&W 750
    .303 British 100
    .357 Magnum 300
    .308 Win 240
    12 Gauge 280
    30-06 100
    8mm Mauser 0
    7.62 x 54R 0

    Even in my first year of keeping records I shot more than 5 times the ammo that I was shooting in prior years. (My typical year before getting back into reloading for the second go round was 500 founds of .45acp and/or .357 magnum per year . .whatever went on sale at Dick's when I got my christmas bonus)

    Have a good one,
