i like to shoot lots because practice make perfect!
Once a week, 100 thru the .45's, 100 thru the 9mm's, and 100 thru the .380's
I shoot 100-200. If ammo was cheaper, I'd probably shoot 250-300.
50-100 / session lately
of course my range is out back so sessions can be short
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.
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.
i always take one gun and try to get anywhere from 100 to 200 rounds through it
yeah way more then 200. I bring 4 at a time, but the 22 gets it bad.
I selected "as much as I can"...I can't afford to shoot very much, so I do when I have ammo, and don't when I'm down to a mag or two worth of ammo. Usually, I only shoot 75 rounds, + or - 25. Anything more than that is too expensive, anything less than that is not worth the time. But on the plus side, my range is my back yard, so I can go whenever I want.
ill update my last post i used to shoot at least once a week now i shoot once a month and only 200 or less due to ammo shortages and price increases, my 22 on the other gets used more than most nowadays and im able to shoot it with subsonics in my backyard
My range these days is just outside my back door. So shoot pretty often and it's as much as I want to then maybe watch a little TV then squeeze off some more
If I'm at a "real range" then I tend to get into conversations with other shooters if I know any of them (and I usually do) so it's hard telling how many rounds. It's not all that uncommon for me to send 200-250 down range when I actually get to shooting. Caliber depending. 22's I wanna shoot them all day, 44 mag it's not near as many as I used to
I usually shoot about 100-150 9mm, 50-100 .40, 100-150 .45, and 200-300 .22. Every now and then I take out the Python and run 40-50 .357 through it. I don't take the Python as often because I would shoot it all day. A few times a year I will put 200-300 through the Mini14. Speaking of the Mini14, has anybody else heard about Ruger making 30 round mags for this gun???? They will be expensive, but I am sure they are better than the $10 POS I can find. I may have to start a new thread about these mags to see if it is rumor or fact.
I usually run 100 per session through my .45, 9mm, or .357...whichever one I bring. Then another 100-150 through my .22. Usually visit the raqnge once per week.
I generally shoot about 200 rounds per visit. I've been trying to be really conservative lately though..
I average a couple of trips a month to the range, usually take ttwo or three with me depending upon how I feel. I put a hundred rounds through each one unless I take my .22. A couple of hundred for it each time.
200. Good round number.
The number of rounds you fire is much less important than the quality of the hits you make with them.
You can learn more in 10 minutes of careful, thoughtful dry-firing than you can from firing off as many practice live-fire rounds as you have time for.
In years past, when I was competing, a weekend practice session of 300 to 500 shots was normal. But that was well after I had learned the fundamentals, and instead I was practicing the specific series of acts the upcoming match-of-the-month would require. Over and over again.
When I was still learning the fundamentals, I would fire only 25 or 30 well-coached shots per week. The rest of the time would find me doing daily 10-minute bouts of dry-fire practice.
Now I'm coaching my wife. She does her 10-minute dry-fire sessions; than, on every Wednesday, she live-fires only 10 to 20 carefully-coached shots. I let her tell me when she's had enough.
We look for series of center-of-mass hits at varying distances, as well as careful gun handling.
Too much practice, all at once, teaches you only how to get tired.
well speaking of too much practice since ive started reloading myself ive gone through about 1500 rounds of 9mm in the past 2 weeks
