I think someone had already counted the ammo in Arizona couple of days before the confrontation in Mexico. They have to count the rounds of ammo before they sell them.

The ammo, no doubt, is packed in ammo containers with quantity/amount stamped on the outside. So, it's not that hard to tally an amount. It would be impractical for the ammo to be "loose." Your taking 152,000 rounds! oh so they say..

Also you count any thing you like with suitable scale (not expensive). You put 10 cartridges on scale and hit 10x button and voila, put rest of cartridges on scale and it tells you amount. Who the fuck would count them by hands. :D
