Buying too much ammo?

With all the confusing laws in MD, is there such a thing as buying too much ammo before it triggers some suspicion? I wanted to buy 1000 rounds of 9mm but a friend of mine said that may be too much and can raise suspicion. I thought I was just being smart and instead of buying boxes of 50 for 11-16 bucks.

****If buying 1000 rounds of ammo was a crime in this state, I'd be on death row!!! (yes... I know the death penalty was eliminated in MD, but they'd bring it BACK if it can help save the children from folks like me who buy ammo in lots of at least 1000 rounds...) Fortunately, I have no guns from which to shoot all of that ammo as they were all lost in a boating accident.

Why I need so much ammo is a mystery to me.

You need new friends lol. No issues. I almost always buy ammo by the 1,000 round case.
Hell there are some here that buy 5,000 rounds at a time.

OP, what kind of suspicion are you concerned with? Not sure exactly what you are worried about and what MD specific agency you are thinking is monitoring bulk ammo sales, and what specifically they would do if they thought you had bought too much??
