That looks like more than I have, and I have about 85K rounds
It could be a lot more than you have, Heretic...

From the meme Daddy0 provided, the pallet contains 10 W x 4 D x 6 H = 240 total ammo cans.
Depending upon exactly what round those ammo cans are made for, there could easily be far more than 87,000 rounds there.. or far less...

Consider the M19A1 ammo can for 7.62 x 51, which holds 200 linked machine gun rounds. So, that would be 200 x 240 = 48,000 rds.
Far less than 85,000 rounds...

If we next consider the ammo can for 5.56 x 45, which holds 420 rds on 10-rd stripper clips in 14 30-rd boxes, that would be 420 x 240 = 100,800 rds.
Far more than 85,000 rds...

Finally, if we consider the 900-rd ammo can for bulk 5.56 x 45 rounds, well, then... As Uncle Jed would say, "Hoooooo, doggie!"
Now, that would be a lot of ammo... 🤩 :s0155:

All true

Half of my ammo stash is rimfire, the rest centerfire. Rimfire takes up a LOT less space than centerfire.
