9mm 500-1000 rounds mixed between ball and JHP
.22 cal. around 5000-6000 rounds
12ga. around 300-500 rounds mixed between slugs, buckshot, #4 steel shot loads, #7 bird shot loads.
7.62x39 around 1000-2000 rounds for the two Wasr 10/63's that me and my wife have.
.380 around 500-1000 rounds mixed between ball and JHP
We look pretty much like we are on the same page...I definitely split my inventory between practise and keeper rounds...and then rebuying as I shoot. The spreadsheet helps keep me straight as to where I need to buy next.
I keep telling the wife, the guns and ammo are not worth one dang bit to us, unless we are absolutely proficient with each...I am in the process of setting up a tactical range (50 - 100 yds) for action practice. I just put out steelies at 175 yds for the first time last week. Boy did I like that!!!!!! What a beautiful sound

Took me a while to get the wife on the same page and I ended up selling my guns in the off calibers to gain funds to buy ammo for the ones we were keeping. Also used some of it to start the garden and stock up on some more food stores. Water is pretty much covered as we have a well and a pool.
Make sure to keep up the practice and do it in any weather. I make the wife practice in the rain and snow as well since the weather is not going to be perfect in a firefight if SHTF.
