Pretty easy to estimate -
12 regular and 4 warmup stages

27.5 pistol rounds
10 rifle rounds
6 shotgun rounds     per stage

Then add whatever your safety margin is.

I'll spot you extra ammo if those numbers don't get you all the ammo you need.

Good luck, GJ

I would like to know because I am leaving in a week and traveling until mid July and need to have enough ammo made up for matches every weekend til then, Most of them are posted and its not too hard to add a small amount for margin of error. If I have to add a huge amount it can add a large amount of weight. Right now I'm probably a little over 600 lbs for ammo.

Kid,
I'm quite certain the stages aren't finished yet. I would use Garrison Joe's estimates and add 10% or so.
And as he said, if by chance you run short, you will have plenty of ammo from other shooters. If hauling the ammo is a problem, feel free to ship some to me as I am only 20 minutes away from Founder's Ranch.

Main match will be right around 450.

35-40 per stage?

That would be WAY more than ever shot at EOT or WR.   If you are intending to try that on for size, you'd be wise to let folks know they will need MORE MAGS, as well as more ammo.  Well before the match.

Good luck, GJ

 ;D actually GJ you have 522 here abouts total round count for main match and LC said 450 so what are you saying? Dusty

Haven't seen just a total stated before to someone asking about how much ammo to bring - so I was going along the line of thought that 450 was the pistol ammo count (the largest volume we shoot in WB matches).   If 450 is pistol plus rifle plus shotgun, then it will be a little lighter loadout than what I was expecting. 

Always helps to see a three-number set to prevent confusion.

Good luck, GJ

Chance and Bubba are finishing the stages and sending them for review. I think the 450 rounds is the TOTAL for all 3 guns. I haven't received the stages yet but I can assure you that the pistol average will NOT be 37.5.

55+ sg 90+ R 300 +p it's something very close to that. I don't have the book, just notes, and it contained total round counts. I'll know Exact when the final book is confirmed this week. I'm sure most of ya who've shot at EOT know what WB usually contains per stage.

Don't get too confused. We don't shoot 3 guns on EVERY stage.

So I am assuming 6 mags will be enough?

Looks like there are some 30 round stages.  I'd carry 7 mags to the line so as to have a spare.

***UPDATE***

"Official round count for EOT will be 295 P 87 R 51 SG" - Texas Jack Morales
Final book sent to Misty.

Regarding mags, I carry 6 on my belt and 1 in the gun(obviously) 35rounds. I always carry 1 extra mag than what the stage calls for because I run fast and my mags sometimes like to fly out of my warn out mag holders. . . Better safe than sorry.

Since this will be my first trip to EOT, will the WB stages be posted ahead of time?
thanks

"Ahead of time" and "posted" - hmmmm.   No to either part of the question.

WB stage booklets at EOT get handed out when you pick up your registration packet beginning on WB warm-up day (or even the first day of the WB match).

They are printed.  Not posted on any SASS site.   Walk to bay.  See 'em - read 'em - shoot 'em.  ;D

Good luck, GJ

Heck, Founder's Ranch IS my home range, and I don't get to shoot those stages either.   ;D

I'm just wondering when we will get our Nike sponsorship and they'll come out with some high performance running cowboy boots. . . Stages will be printed in the book and the books are handed out when you register at EOT. You can always ask Amber or Misty for an extra if you get there real early, or come find me. No need to practice stages until you arrive at the stage IMO. Everyone's different. Mental game is what I'd prepare for, dropping the heart rate, relaxing, that sort of thing. And that's what music, good friends and whiskey is for each night of EOT!

Just to be clear this includes warmup? This sounds a little low for 16 stages.

No, this is for main match only. I would figure 120-130 pistol, 40-45 rifle and 24-30 shotgun for warmup.
