My last range visit, three days ago, was 85 rounds of .22LR shot from a Ruger MkII. That was not a typical session though. Commonly when I take pistols, it's 100 rounds of .22LR, 50 each in the Ruger MkII and a Benelli MP95, then 50 rounds of centerfire in either a .45acp M1911 or .32 S&W Long in a Benelli MP95. When I take rifles, it's commonly 50 rounds in a Ruger 10/22, then 50 rounds of .223. On occasion, I'll bring along a Remington 700 chambered in 7mmSTW and pop off 15-20 rounds, or until my shoulder says enough. Usually shoot the 7mmSTW last, because at times I develop a flitch from the noise and recoil, and that ruins the rest of the day.

Anyone else find it hard to leave 15 rounds in a box of 50?

I will usually shoot about 200 to 300 rounds through my CZ 455 if I am by myself. If my step son comes along we will shoot anywhere from 500 to 700 rounds of .22lr and he will shoot a few .223 and 9mm also.

Yes, unless it's "hunting" ammo...and I'm hunting.

I usually take one bench rifle and a hunting rifle, 22's. I started taking a 45 out and shooting as well but need to cast more bullets, my son went with me and he likes to shoot it all. He leaves no stragglers in a box.

A 500 round bulk pack usually lasts me 2-3 trips. My favorite guns are an S&W revolver and a Marlin rifle, but the Marlin is back to the manufacturer because its been a sucky piece of crap.

I shoot a monltly USBR match on the 1st Saturday of every month.
On the Friday before I take my rifle to the range and foul it with 10-15 shots, and then shoot about 15 or so rounds at a practice USBR target to make sure it's ready to rock.
And that's it.
I'm not going to waste any of my best lot tested ammo just dinking around.

Occasionally I'll also shoot some of the RFC online matches.
Now how much ammo I shoot kinda depends on the target.
If it's nasty hard it has to be 15 rounds or less, because again I'm not going use too much of my best ammo.
If it's a little bit less difficult, I'll shoot up to 50-60 rounds using ammo that's less than primo.

Now during the rest of the month I may shoot a couple of hundred rounds practicing for my Silhouette matches.
And when practicing with any of my pistols for BullsEye or Steel Challenge, the sky is the limit.
I have a massive amount of ammo for either of those pursuits.

So here is the bottom line, I shoot very few rounds each month for bench-rest practice, and I never just blast ammo down range for the heck of it.

Yesterday I shot around 300 from my self assembled “Scorpion” and about 100rds from my MKlll std.
For the last 15+ yrs, my go to 22lr pistol has been my MKll 5.5 slab side. The Scorpion may soon take its place.
My go to 22lr rifle is my Ruger 10/22 takedown with Kidd internals.
When precision shooting, my CZ 452 Varmint.

I shoot a brick a session, usually with careful aimed targeting in mind. Sometimes its more, but sometimes less.

Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that.

I used to shoot a 525/550 Federal bulk pack every time I went out shooting.

It may not be at the range, but at a safe place to shoot. I prefer plinking over paper punching.

Most my rounds have been through one Belgium Browning Challenger.

Usually around half a brick of mostly .22lr and some .17HMR. Occasionally I will exercise the AR and 9 mm pistols, too, but that's mostly to stay comfortable with them and be sure they don't go unused for extended periods.

Rimfire is the fun stuff for me. I'm lucky to have unlimited access to a friend's 100 yd. private range so no worries about crowds or CoViD.

Depends on what I'm shooting. On days when I'm only shooting handguns I typically fire around 200 rounds. Centerfire, depending on caliber, anywhere between 50 and 300. And rimfire I usually shoot 400 - 600 rounds.

It really all depends on what I'm shooting and how much time I have. It's easier to chew through ammo fast when I'm pistol shooting than bench rest shooting. 100 rounds to 300 rounds on average. I like to load up at least 50 rounds at a time into magazines for my semi auto pistols and 10/22s when I shoot them.
