Yes, ammo was burned up.

I did introduce a rule while playing that a Fire or Missile unit could spend an action to scrounge up extra ammo once per game and get 1 point back. For the teppo fire unit, that represented ashigaru getting fresh ram-rods and the squad leader distributing his last reserve of bullets (I was just reading an account from one of the training manuals-esque documents of the time period that suggested that teppo squad leaders keep a few extra rounds and ramrods on hand). For the archers, I imagined the presence of nearby retainers carrying ammo, also a feature of battles from that period.
