On average how many rounds do you shoot at a trip to your range?

I ran out of ammo on my last trip, the 1911a1 fired flawlessly so i hammered it more. I was sorry I only brought 250rds on my next trip I may bring 500rds.

Bullseye practice usually 100-150 rds
Monthly steel plate match 300-400 rds
Regular range trip 200-300 rds

I find I shoot less rounds, the more precise shooting I do. I'm tired after 50 rds on 50 yard slow fire.

the "average" now is 100 rounds a trip. 50 of .22, and then another 50 of 9mm, .38, or .45, or a mix thereof with three trips to the range per week.:)

be safe, shoot well.:rock:

20 to 40 rounds, 3 times a week.

Alex.


Edit: Not including competitions and friendly matches, not including rifles. I've been shooting quite a lot of .22 at the indoor range with my AR-15 lately. Oh, and not including the once in a wihle where I'll treat myself with some rapid shooting and burn a box of ammo :)

Around 1000 per trip usually. Sometimes more sometimes less. But I shoot out at a ranch and it is an on and off thing all day. When I find my shooting starting to go down hill, I take a break and do something else for a while. I make it out there a couple times a month. One of the main reasons I got into reloading. If I had to buy factory I would never be able to shoot that much.

About 150 rounds per trip (3 sometimes 4 times per week). Lately been shooting a bit more than that but I've only shot more than 350 once.

My regular weekly trip is 100 rounds with one of the 1911's (indoor), outdoor trips very, usually 150 to 200 rounds trap and around 100 rounds with a rifle.

I average about 300 to 400 centerfire rounds each range visit, about twice a month.

100 rounds, two or three times a month; once in a great while, 150. After 100, I find my concentration is about shot and I'm just throwing lead down the range to no real advantage.

150 of 9mm plus a 100 of 45 a trip. Two trips per week. I am thinking about starting to reload because it adds up extremely fast.
