      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

      I normally go to the range 3 times a week and I take 6 handguns to the range and normally shoot 100 rounds per gun. I shoot roughly 1800 rounds a week in mixed calibers 9mm, .40, .357Mag, .45Acp and .22LR.

      Re: How many rounds do you shoot when you go to the range

      Until I'm out. I shoot in the back yard, so it's not far to re-supply. I never will understand how someone can tell you how many rounds they have through each gun. Shoot until you lose track.

      300 rounds it's a perfect number.
      Me too, I shot so much and no more.

      I've been in the Italian Army squad (IPSC) for 15 years, and I can ensure the number is good but not too much.
      Go ahead.
      Regards

      The wife and I will go through 400 rounds of .22lr per trip between us, usually about 4 hours at the range on average. The centerfires, if everything is working well, will get two magazines each. If I've worked on something or am trying to improve a certain aspect with a single gun, it may be the only one I shoot all day and may get 200 through it alone.

      With the price increase, I find myself saving my ammo that I have for a mote rainy day. Anyone else?

      Before ammo became scarce I shot 100 rounds of .22 to warm up and 50 rounds with my carry gun every week. Since I have the stuff and enough brass to reload .45 cartridges, I now shoot 50 rounds of 9mm in whatever carry gun I have and then 25 rounds of .45 that I've reloaded. I keep huntin' for .22 ammo - hope springs eternal

      How many rounds do you shoot when you go to the range

      Wife & I go to range weekly.
      Previously, Range total for me was 150 rnds of 9mm and 50 rnds of .380.
      Range total for her it was 100 rnds of 9 mm and 50-100 rnds of 22lr.
      In todays madness we've dropped to about 70 rounds of 9 and 20 rnds .380 for me, 30 of 9 and 50-100 22lr for her.
      We may both drop down further if range ammo gets further limited. We have switched to buying at range and not using from our stock. Range ammo is more expensive but I ain't touching my ammo cans till supplies start flowing again. We are still buying when we can and adding to the cans. Round count in the can is comfortable but I still want to add more.

      Today, we put about 100 down range but would have liked to have put more. Considering the shortage of ammo and our tightness of cash right now, we don't have a lot of extra.

      We are working on getting setup to reload 45 and 38 and 9 mm so we will be more self sufficient on the handgun ammo.

      We don't practice much with our long guns as they are all zeroed and well broken in.

      I generally shoot 100 rounds per range visit once a week. Ammo is pretty expensive here so I may cut back to 50 rounds each trip.
