You might check out this article at Tactical, it states that DHS uses, "15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises."
Doing the math the DHS uses 15 million times 5 years or 75 million rounds a year yet has purchased 1.6 billion rounds or more than a 20 year supply.

Regarding the desensitizing targets why is there no targets of someone dressed up as a SWAT or LEO or security guard or a kid with an Air-Soft? Surely those uniforms are easy to get a hold of. Most of the rationale here supporting these targets seems to be that people with guns are evil and a threat yet more than ever law abiding citizens are arming themselves because LEOs are unable to protect them. Not one of these targets I have seen shows a shot being taken. Are LEOs now going around busting down doors without announcing who they are? Excuse me I should rephrase that; are DHS agents now being trained to kill anyone with a gun and does that include LEOs, kids, pregnant women, young girls and the elderly? Should they shoot Biden with his shotgun or President Obama with his skeet gun? Or in those cases there would be pause for consideration?

IMHO - we've reached the end. The use of nontypical targets has been discussed and we are off topic.
