Never less than 50. Sometimes more if I have the time or inclination.

The range I go to has half-hour rentals, which is nice on the ride home from work. I zip in, shoot a box (50) then head home. The old lady has no clue! I go at least once a week.

i make a half day of it 100 shotgun shells, 200 or more 22s, and 100 to 200 9mm, i get out there about once a week.

Average is 100 ..... which usually is enough to keep me mentally ready, and enough to enjoy the sights and sounds of a visit to the range ...

My gun range is just around the corner.That itself is a major factor that I put down <25 rounds per visit.I am a member.That helps.I visit regularly.(once a week) on average.I do have occasions that I'll shoot 200 rounds or so.That is with my .22 western single action revolvers.I have a Judge and a .44 Mag. revolver that I have put laser sights on.These are my babies.I'll go down and shoot 10 rounds or so in each.I enjoy all my guns.Wouldn't get rid of none.

I usually get to the range 2-3 times a week and average around 500rds total down range for the week.
Thats in my handguns, usually shoot 4 or 5 cals through the week.

The number of guns I'll take to the range every two weeks varies but the number of loaded mags I take and empty is always the same.
Fifteen , full size, eight rounders equals 120 rounds
Four, officer, seven rounders equals 28rounds
I never reload mags at the range so my total is 148 rounds per trip. Sounds like a lot doesn't it? It sure doesn't feel like it's that many when I'm doing it.

Over 200 most of the time I go, considering that it's either government paid for gun shoot, or its a relatively rare personal go out and shoot different guns at gun ranges type shoot.
brief summary of a shoot I got back from.
about 500 of 6,000 HE (high explosive) mk 19 mod 3 grenades (part of which was trying to put out a fire... did not work)
about 500 shotgun shells for the m500
400 5.56mm out of an m4 (50/50 split between aimed shots and auto fire)
few hundred rounds of 9mm out of a m9.
800 rounds of 7.62 from a 240
and only a hundred or so rounds from the m2hb, .50 cal bmg

Visit indoor range once per week ........ shoot 100 9s and 100 .45s. When the weather's decent about 200-300 .223s per week at the outdoor range.

We bring 3 handguns and shoot 50 to 100 per. My wife and I enjoy competition with each other and it keeps us very familiar with each weapon for ccw.
05-25-2011, 09:25 PM
Even though I selected 80-100 rounds, I often expend more centerfire handgun ammo during my practice sessions. The number depends on the kind of shooting I'm involved with each time.
05-27-2011, 01:53 PM
I usually bring about 200-250 rounds.
It's an easy trip for me (the range is one mile from my house).
06-20-2011, 12:01 PM
I usually shoot about 100 rounds per week. Rounds are very costly in my neck of the woods, and sadly, we don't do reloads.
07-25-2011, 12:46 AM
Never enough my friends, NEVER ENOUGH
I want to shoot at least 500 every trip but only end up doing at most 250 if that
Bullets are FUCKING EXPENSIVE!!! I need to stock up before 2012 hits and bullet prices go even her up

Old thread I know.
I usually get 200-250 of the cheapest FMJ rounds I can find. Of corse Id love to do more but...
08-10-2011, 06:29 AM
I usually shoot 100 to 150 rounds these days, minimum.
12-04-2011, 06:59 PM
I usually take 3 or 4 guns. -- if I bring a 1911 it's usually about 100 rounds. With the other pistols or revolvers, it's what I need to maintain proficiency. As an example, when I shoot my 238, I usually shoot more than I want to. Little pistol, have to put rounds downrange to be fairly accurate. Other pistols or revolvers need to be shot regularly also -- so, it's about 200 or so rounds every 2 weeks -- that's why I reload.
01-15-2012, 06:35 PM
At least 100. Doesn't seem worth going for less.
Seriously though, I run several drills when I go to the range and, depending on time, I go through 100-150 rounds each visit.
01-15-2012, 07:03 PM
I found that shooting at matches I use about half the ammo I normally would at the static range. Otherwise I would shoot about 200-300 9mm. If I take the .22 then it's gam on! I have gone through a 525 round bulk box of .22! How fun is that!
01-16-2012, 10:17 AM
Well i guess im lucky.My range consists of stepping out my back door.So it all depends on how many rounds i have loaded up.Usually handgun ,i will shoot everything i have loaded up.Rifles has always been a load every round perfectly.All my rifle rounds are loaded as close to exact with each other as possible for accuracy,so usually i will only shoot maybe 10 each time i go out.Just because it can take a couple hours per rifle to load up 20.
Lately my daughter has gotten to be a huge fan of shooting so if we take her 10/22 she will shoot a couple hundred rounds and if she is shooting skeet,she will burn up one of the 100 count bulk boxes of 20 gauge you can get at Wally world.
Its all fun though and never enough.
