    Same as most people have been saying. Take a couple of them out with 100 rounds for each.

    Practice

    When I was younger and active in shooting, and handloading, I spent about 400 to 500 rounds a week from three different guns each week, plus often another 20 or so from one of my rifles. That is what seemed to be required to maintain an edge. Now, I spend 50 rounds at a time on two handguns. That seems to be enough for maintenance of basic skills, and does not make my damaged hands hurt too much later.

    I'll easily run through 200 rounds of .22 when shooting my P22. I can shoot it all day long, really. I try to put as many rounds through that as possible, since it's cheaper to shoot and less stressful on my hand. I really enjoy shooting, and I enjoy being more accurate...especially since my dad likes to talk shit about how well he shoots

    When I get my XD I'll probably put a box through it when I'm at the range. No real need to do anymore.

    Right now it can be anywhere from 200-400 rounds per trip (just in the pistols), but ammo is free. (well, someone is paying the bill... so thanks!) As I type this, I can hear people shooting on the range we have here on our compound and I'm thinking I'll probably do a little "zero verification" fire this evening.

    When I'm home, I'd guess somewhere around 100-200 rds per session for most of my handguns. I have a 6-stage reloading press that cranks out a couple hundred rounds an hour if I am bored enough to sit there and pull the handle that many times. I have dies for .45acp, .40s&w, and 9mm, so I fire those most of the time. I need to get one for .357mag as well, since I am shooting one of those frequently as well. The "trip" to the range for me is about 25 steps out my back door, so we shoot quite often. (2-3 times per week) Ammo isn't as cheap as it used to be (nothing is I guess), even when ordered in bulk. I keep my "plinking" loads to a fairly low velocity (equivalent to what I'd buy at the store for FMJ, so I can get 2-3 reloads out of the brass. Buy IMR and Hog. powder in bulk as well as FMJ bullets, so I can keep the cost per round pretty low. I am stuck ordering .22lr for my rimfires those, since that is non-reloadable... and I can't even guess how many (thousands) of those I go through a month.

    I shoot 100-200. If ammo was cheaper, I'd probably shoot 250-300.

    I go through about 25 or 7.62X54R, 250 rounds of .40, 100 rounds of 9mm, 100 rounds of .223. All in about a week to two weeks time. On average. I have a single stage press I use for my .223 however I think I could benefit from loading my .40 S&W ammo as well.

    I chose 200+
    I have a Buckmark Camper, a Hi-Point C9 & a Hi-Point 995 Carbine.
    All are fairly new so I'm still breaking them in pretty much.
    I usually shoot around 200 or less in the 9mm's & around 200+ of .22's.

    My trips to the range don't happen too often so when I go I shoot all I can.
    The indoor Bass-Pro range is close but I prefer an outdoor range. Those are all a bit far & with gas & ammo prices going up I'll be going even less now.

    Oh, I also heard that ammo will be going up again. This is from one of the Gun shops when I was asking about some cheap 9mm the other day.
    I guess I'll have to start saving ALL the brass I can find & get ready to start reloading.

    How Much is TOO much?

    Dependin on what time I wake up, and what the wife has planned...I usually take about 5 weapons with me. Mostly a long-gunner right now....I have about 25 long guns.......At last count, (by my wife) I had 7,500 rounds of ammo for the various weapons...Wife said why you need so much ammo....(Try explainin THAT, hubbies!) If she has to ask, she wouldn't unnerstand, anyway.......lol

    I chose "As much as I can", because I usually try to shoot a box (50rds) per gun,( if I can afford it), and I usually take 4 to 5 pistols with me each time I go. My rifles are a different story though. .308/7.62x51 gets pretty expensive so I only shoot to zero plus around 5 to 10 rds.

    I suppose if I'm doing only .40 and .45 I keep to 200. 100 down each.

    But if I bring my .22 which I usually do, I'll play with that thing for another couple hundred rounds. Adjustable sights are the devil! I swear I tinker with my 22's sights more than I shoot it.
