How many rounds on a "typical" range day



Log in to see fewer ads
Just for fun... How many round do you fire on a "Typical " range day? and what is your go-to 22rl rifle or pistol?

Me: approx 100 rounds from my Ruger 22/45 lite would be a normal day. If I'm shooting my 10/22 from the bench it's more like 50 - 75ish.

Calamity and I went to our range this morning. Between the two of us, we shot 1080 rounds through our 20/22's. How do I know?? We each have 36 ruger 10/22 magazines, 18 mags per box which I've shown here before. These I preload the day before. While at the range, I also loaded another two boxes, 36 mags, which we also shot. Total of 108 mags, or 1080 rounds. Plus a few in Calamity's SR22 handgun, and a few 9mm in my Sig. Perfect day for shooting. Arrived at the range at 6:30, after a half hour of setup, temp was a warm 79, zero wind, cloudless sky. Typical day for us.

Usually between 300-500 rounds.

Don't have a "go to"; I have lots of different 22lrs; 10/22T, Henry Small Game Carbine, Henry Evil Roy, fixed sight stainless single six, Wrangler, MK4 Hunter, MK4 Lite (not a 22/45), Bearcats, single ten, Marlin Model 60, Tippmann Elite, SR22, Buckmark Stainless Plus UDX...have a Ruger American Rimfire Target stainless thumbhole stock on order. Will be getting more, just don't know what I want next.

Usually 2-3 of us. Ammo usage depends on what we're doing.

Shooting for groups, 100-200 ish.
Shooting dueling tree, practicing semi-auto offhand against the cow bell, plinking clay pigeons at long range, etc... 500+.

When the kids are there, we burn through a LOT of ammo shooting 'fun' stuff.

The $2/box Aguila is perfect for the high volume days! Can be there anywhere between 1-2 hours, to several hours. Range is not timed, and is not crowded... so you can stay as long as you want. We can set 'specialty' targets like 2L soda bottles, gallon jugs, etc out to blast. Kid + 44 mag + bottle = FUN! lol Always lots of spent shotgun shells laying around, so it's fun to set them up, and plink them off the tops of the target stands. Lots of unbusted clay pigeons laying around that were missed as well. Fun to pick those up and set them out at long range.

You get all that going, and it's not hard to be there for hours and go through 1000+ rounds between a few people.

I broke down and bought a 200 round box of the new Blazer 38 gr on Saturday. Shot 120 rounds, 12 magazines this morning. Best one was 1 1/2" at 50 yards. Most were over 2". Absolutely the worse ammo I've used in a long time. I still have a bunch of Rem GB buckets that I shoot from time to time. Here's what I see in my 5 Ruger 10/22's, all with GM barrels and Kidd triggers. Normal spread of GB's for me for the best 7-8 shots out of 10 is 1/2"-3/4". Fliers are 1-1 1/2" out. This morning, the best 5-6 shots of the Blazers were 1/2"-3/4". The other shots were fliers at 1 1/2" -2 1/2".

Your results may vary.

I usually go between 200-300 .22LR per session. If I take one one my kids it usually runs 400 - 600 with them doing most of the shooting.

I usually shot around 300 rounds each Open Range day and about 150 each handgun silhouette day. That is 3 matches per day, though some days I got in 4-5 matches, depending on the crowds.

For Open Range days, 300 is the total of all rounds, centerfire and rimfire and that includes rifles and handguns. A couple favorites always went with me to every range day, but I usually brought different guns to shoot each time.

Always had an Exemplar pistol, a Calfee XP-100 in .22 rimfire, Calfee Kimber 82G and Remington 40XB were the usual guns I took every day.

If my wife and I do the home defense drill we will go through 400-500 rounds. That is why I buy the cheap stuff. We usually use a pair of S&W 15-22 rifles with red dots but occasionally I will use my braced charger. Off the bench I will go through 150-200 rounds.

That's what I thought you meant, or something similar. Big disappointment this morning, but I wasn't that surprised. Blazers only shot well in my handguns, and anything shots well within 10-25 feet.

About 100 rds .22lr.

Anschutz, 10/22s, or various handguns. But I'm retired so can go to the range, or behind the house, pretty much whenever. Probably 2-3 outings/week in decent weather.

Depends on what and where I am shooting.

.22 LR - about 200 rounds is a typical day, but more if I have not brought other firearms. I find that my concentration wanes before my ammunition supply. So I can put more rounds downrange, but my technique gets lax after a few hours. In my neighbor's field, this is usually a cue to shift from paper targets to steel plates. Always end the range day on a "hit"-- that's what I try to do anyway.

.222/.223 -- 50 rounds per rifle is usually what I am shooting during load development. The .223 does have enough powder to heat the barrel, which will skew the results on target with my rifles. Gotta take it slow -- even setting aside the rifle to let it cool down. I'll alternate between 50 yards with a .22 LR and 100 yards with the centerfire rounds. Also helps me keep my concentration.

Centerfire pistol. I typically when I go to my club I will take a little practice time with a centerfire pistol, since my club is a 45 minute drive from my house. Might as well get the practice/range time in since I am doing the drive. Unlike rimfire, I am not comfortable shooting centerfire where I live, but my club has nice tall berms. I probably don't shoot more than 100 rounds of centerfire pistol, unless I am doing load development or fewer if I am splitting my time between centerfire and rimfire pistols.
