It's great you can shoot as often as you do, but you're spending far too much on your range ammo - this is a lot better price:
Better yet, keep checking different vendors on-line - they offer free shipping periodically.

While they had the policy, I bought a few boxes of Magtech ammo and then picked a few empty Magtech boxes out of the trash bins in the range.
When I went to the range, they inspected the Magtech factory ammo, then I went in and shot the reloads in the other Magtech boxes in my range bag.
They must have inspected those same boxes well over 100 times. I've still got 'em stuck away in the closet in case I need them again in the future.

I don't shoot that many SD through my carry pistols, maybe 50 rounds as a reliability check, but I practice with the FMJ equivalent from the same manufacturer. Federal HST 147 +P and American Eagle 147 FMJ. I buy my ammo at SGAmmo. My CCW pistols in order of most use - PPS original, Gen 2 Glock 19, and HK P30SK LEM.

Confidence. The logic, the math...don't lie and aren't mysterious.
If the level of confidence is based on the number of rounds fired without any issues.....then smaller round count will always equate to less confidence.
What is sufficient? No matter how high the round count......the next one COULD be a failure. It isn't a perfect world, and there is NO ammunition with a history or never having failed anywhere at anytime in every gun.
You have to decide what level of confidence you need, what it takes to achieve it, and can you afford it.
Like most here, I am comfortable with the level of confidence training mostly with FMJ, and periodically confirming accuracy and no failures with the JHP's that I carry.
Carry a quality firearm with quality ammunition. That's as good as it gets.

Typically I just shoot range ammo. Since I recently changed my EDC, I went through around 200 rounds of HP's just to be certain there were no issues with them.
Its a good idea to occasionally run some of your preferred defensive rounds through, but I don't think its really needed to run too much of it. Would get expensive really quickly.

I run 300 to 500 rds of SD ammo through a gun before I carry either - the gun or ammo. I don't shoot as much as some of you, but when I do go to the range I'll shoot 200 to 300 FMJ the always end the session with a box of 50 HP - the HP Icarry for that gun.
