    Over the last 3 days I spent $750 on ammo (2000 rnd .223 and 1000 rnd .308). This makes for an interesting question. How much is the most you have spent at any one time (over say 5 days or less) for ammo for personal no commercial use?

    Several years ago, I spent $950 on ammo of various calibers at a gun show. It seemed like the ammo deals were "jumping" out at me every time I turned around! Thankfully, I had a good friend who had rented a vendors table at that show, and he allowed me to stow what I bought under his table until the end of the show. He also let me use his push cart to haul all of that ammo out to my car. In return, I helped him haul all of his un-sold goods out to his truck at the end of the show.

    One of my buddies bought nearly $1,200 worth of ammo from on-line sources, and it was all delivered over the course of 3 days. The UPS driver that made all of those deliveries turned out to be a shooter, and was eventually invited for a shooting trip. That was about 10 years ago, and he's still one of our shooting buddies, but no longer works for UPS. Not all UPS drivers are idiots!

    Just two days ago I spent right at $400 on ammo. By far the most I've ever spent at once. Before that my max was 1 case of .308 for ~$160.

    Hmmmm

    IIRC, about $120 was my biggest all-at-once ammo purchase.

    Around $1,500 at KCR. Maybe '95 through '99 when I was hitting Knob Creek regularly. The SUV rode real smooth back to Indiana.:D

    Several years ago I spent about $2k over a 2 day gunshow. Ammo specials were everywhere and I had arrived wanting to pickup a rifle and pistol, but found neither, so I stocked way up on my major calibers.

    1 case .233
    1 case 7.62x54r

    When 7.62x39mm was ~$70-$80/1000 a group of us bought 3000 rnds... so ~$200-~$250 at once...

    Not that much when split between 3 or 4 folks...

    I do not spend a whole lot of money on ammunition for my home. I have a couple hundred rounds of each on hand but since I cannot use my own ammo at any of the local ranges I do not go through alot of my private supply. Seems I buy a few boxes and they stay in the safe forever.

    The most at one time for me would be 500 bucks worth of reloading components (bullets, brass, powder, primers) bought about a year ago and I am still trying to get everything loaded :).

    Just my .02,

    The most for me was $250 when I took two clients shooting my Thompson SMG over their lunch hour.

    That $250 went in 45 minutes.
