    200 with my 9mm guns - always have done this. Used to be 200 in 45 too, but now I just do 150 if shooting 45 ACP.

    If I combine the two calibers - 200 total. I also never take more than 2 guns on 1 trip, to make it easier on the cleaning part.

    On an average range session I usually go through 100 rds. or less. I like to keep it exciting for the next time out. It's also easier on the pistol ...... yeah, I know ....
    I baby my weapons ....

    I am finding I am shooting 200 rds of 9mm especially if I bring more than one 9mm gun with me; 50 rounds of .45; and 200 rounds of .22. I try to limit my range guns to no more than 3, most of the time just 2 so I can concentrate on that particular gun.

    I didn't pick a number.
    Sight in? As much or as little as necesary.
    Load testing? 50 to 100 maybe more.
    General screwing around. 200 to 300 maybe.
    Am I alone or did I bring the family?
    How much time do I have? Am I squeezing in time after work or do I have all day?

    short answer, it depends.

    It depends on the caliber I'm shooting as to the number I shoot. If I take one of the .22s I end up shooting at least 300, and I never go to the range without a .22!

    Depends on what I take to the range with me, but 300 is a good number to me as well. I'll spend a good three hours there with perhaps 2.5 of that actually shooting and not BSing with other folks. I'll vary my targets, and shooting scenarios, and try to get some 'practical' time in as opposed to punching holes in targets. I usually take the Kimber, RAMI, CZ-75B, CZ-82, Rossi .38 and Bersa Thunder .380, as that gives me different rounds, different firearms, different situations to work through.

    Lots of fun, good experience.

    I dont get to go as often as I'd like so when I do go, i Usually put 200 rounds through each weapon. Plus I usually go with either my wife or my children, so it may be even more from time to time.

    Normally I go to the range twice a month and shoot 100 in each of 2 .45's, for serious practice to improve
    groups, breathing, etc, and and then another 50 rounds total for rolling cans.
    I always take one of my .22s on 1911 frame and easily shoot 150-200 rounds. they have about the same
    weight as the .45s and have helped improve my accuracy with the center-fire pistols. I reload the .45 to help keep the costs down.

    I shoot until my attention span flags. Usually about 50 or 75 rounds.

    It takes concentration for me to keep focused on the front sights--plus always hitting the center of the bullseye is boring

    My Uncle bowled a 298 on the very first game he ever bowled (my father was there as as witness). All strikes except for the last ball. He never bowled again; he said it was boring.

    For handguns I voted 100 (or less). The cost of the ammo can be a killer on the pocket book. If I am shooting .22 LR, I will usually put around 150 or so through the rifle. I shot my Mosin Nagant last weekend, and I only put 15 rounds thru it.

    Maybe it is just me, but shooting well requires a high level of concentration. You need to focus acutely on the front sight and work on keeping your sight picture steady.

    I could shoot a lot more than 50 rounds per session, but my concentration flags after about 45 minutes to an hour and then I quit.

    I cannot fathom how you can concentrate for 600 rounds of no-matter-what-the-caliber ammo (.22s I would imagine).

    @ Packard

    I agree

    I see other shooters come in and just bang away - like it's more important to shoot a lot rather than better.

    I rarely stay at the range for more than a hour, for the same reasons you stated .

    Just my .02

    I shoot too many rounds for my budget, yet not enough rounds for my satisfaction.

    I like this thread. The first one was done 5 years ago. It was time for a new one. But the first choice should have been "50" - the single box. I shoot on a commercial, indoor range. I am required to buy ammo from the store that owns the range as my "rent" for an hour of range time. That's fine with me as their prices are fair and they have a good selection of ammo. I used to handload 45 and 357 50 years ago but now I don't want to go to that much trouble. (Doing that well takes time.) I also find that shooting one box, with proper concentration on trying to improve, is enough for one session. I try to do two sessions a month.

    Holy crap! New to the site man, but you nailed me in that comment! Good to see the reloaders are around, how else could we afford to shoot. I fire 250 with my .40 which is my carry gun. Not sure about my bear sidearm or the wife's protection piece, or the sons .22, but we do shoot.

    Guessing....almost 1000 on Sunday. I shoot NRA meets Saturday.

    I've been shooting around 200 9mm and 200 .380 rounds on the past few range visits to break in my new Bersa Thunders, but that is going to be way too expensive to maintain. No way can I justify $140 a week on ammo alone plus range fees. I have a Beretta .22 as well, so I'll continue to shoot around 50 of the 9mm/.380 to maintain a "feel" for both, but I'll shoot that .22 'till the cows come home.

    I probably get out on average about six times per month and usually two times are serious practice with 150-200 9mm with multiple targets, varying distance, varying positions, move and fire, single hand, draw drills, and so on. (Not all those things every time!) Every outing starts with 9mm practice, minimum 50-60 rounds since that's my primary weapon. Everything else has a rotation of sorts that depends on what I feel like, but usually there's a .22 and most of the time a rifle or two.

    I shoot off my back porch so it depends on the day. Sometimes just a mag other times a box or 2 of Winchester white box or maybe 200 rounds. All depends on my mood and the weather
