I keep track of my ammo count. Each caliber and how many rounds I have. I don't keep track of how many of what brand or grain of bullet ect. But I also don't count how many bullets and cases unloaded I have or primers. ect. Do any of you count them in your inventory?

I have a rough count, within perhaps 100 of my actual count. Doesn't count what is in mags, or in my range bag. Classified by range/target ammo or defense ammo.

there is a difference between ammo and components. You may want to keep an idea of how much ammo you could make, but its not the same as ammo on hand.

If it can't be shot now, it just components.

What mark said.

I don't reload (yet), but I save my cases for when I do start in the future. I do have a rough idea of how many bullets I have on hand, and I also keep a rough count of empty cases. But the empties are counted as raw materials, not as a finished product.

When I do start reloading I will probably keep a separate total. Something like:
'x' rounds, 9mm practice
'y' rounds, 9mm defense
'z' rounds equivalent, 9mm primers, powder, bullets, and empty cases (only require putting together)
'zz' rounds equivalent, 9mm primers, powder and bullets (will re-use cases from above)

Until they are ready to fire, the quantities in 'z' and 'zz' should not be in the same category as 'x' or 'y'. For one, it will take time to assemble, for another, you might use the same powder and primers for a different caliber.

But you should definitely keep track of how much of each you have, if nothing more than to keep your inventory from getting out of balance. Several hundred pounds of powder is useless if you only have a few dozen primers.

If you are able to keep an accurate count, you probably don't have enough.

I would if I lived in some of the ban States. You don't want someone picking up your brass.

I can't keep track of all my stuff.

Yeah, I keep accurate count.

I have several coffee cans of this, and a few coffee cans of that, a whole bunch of coffee cans of loaded stuff.
