So, how hard core are some of you? Right now, I'm pretty poor. I reload shotshell rounds, but don't reload anything else. I believe I shoot somewhere around 3k shotshell and about 2-3k brass in a given year.

NOT ENOUGH
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 3:48:47 AM EDT
Lately? Zero.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 3:49:07 AM EDT
Hmmm, just 45ACP alone I'm going through about 1,000 rounds approx every two weeks. The 7.62 and 5.56 don't go that fast, thankfully.

I'm supposed to keep count?
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 3:50:16 AM EDT
3-5K .223.....Probably 800-1500 .40.....Maybe 500-1K 12Gauge.

That's just ballpark.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 3:50:34 AM EDT
4k from various guns.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:36:09 AM EDT
Did not know there would be a test......man I am never prepared
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:37:59 AM EDT
atleast 10k
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:40:51 AM EDT
At least 4k .223, several thousand of 9mm (now that I have a subgun), a thousand or so .45 ACP, couple thousand 7.62x51, maybe a thousand 7.62x39, couple thousand .22LR, a couple hundred .357 Mag, and maybe 400-500 shot shells.

500-1000 5.56,
500-1000 7.62,
100-200 9mm
10-20 12ga
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:50:31 AM EDT
10K +
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:54:25 AM EDT
No more than two or three hundred centerfire cartridges expended per year, excluding any "work related" expenditures.

For every round that is put down range, perhaps five are squirreled away for a rainy decade.

I read somewhere that Rob Leatham fires about 70,000 rounds a year.

That being said, I'll probably never get to his level at my current 2500-3000.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 5:04:12 AM EDT
2-3K total.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 5:05:04 AM EDT
If I had the money, I'd shoot a lot more.
Right now, its between 100-150 every weekend or so. Most of this is either 45 or 223.

Well....my standard weekend shoot goes something like this:

Handgun: (Glock 17)
100rds @ 25m
100rds @ 15m
500rds @ 7m-7 feet

Rifle: (Colt M4)
100rds @ 300m
100rds @ 100m
200rds @ 50m-25m
300rds @ 7m-7 feet

Shotgun: (1187)
25rds Slug @ 50m
100rds Slug/Buck @ 25m-15m

Figure I get to do this about 20-25 weekends out of the 52 total availible. Factor in Dept. quals, SWATquals, training days, IDPA, Pin Shoots etc....

So, anywhere from 30-38k a year, give or take a couple k.

5,000 - 7,000.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:27:57 AM EDT
Geez, I'd be embarrassed to even try counting them.

Probably a 3-4 hundred on average. I'd love to shoot more, I just have no time.

I'm hoping to actually use the toys I've been accumulating once I move to a new house. And get some training soon too.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:30:16 AM EDT
a crap load, maybe too much seeing how I cannot replace my spent 7.62 x 39 now

Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:34:14 AM EDT
2-4 k
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:36:53 AM EDT
5-7K give or take, more if I can afford a carbine class during the year!
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 6:40:28 AM EDT
Over 12k throught my 9mm OLY.
2-3000 9mm in a pistol.
2k 5.56
10-20 bricks of 22

How many rounds do you put down range in a year??


All calibers combined, probably 6k to 8k.
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 8:44:46 AM EDT
I dont own any evil black rifles anymore so I shoot a lot less ammo now

I mostly shoot .45 autos & 9mm

1000 rds a year
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 10:28:43 AM EDT
I'm not buying any rifles from you guys.

EE - nice A2, barely used. 99+%. Maybe 100 rounds fired ever....

Lately, not very many. But in ordinary years where I take a couple of training classes a year, a whole bunch.

3-4 K

My main problem right now is that I'm in collecting mode. Hmm, I could buy this case of ammo, or I could buy myself this c&r rifle....
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 3:52:10 PM EDT
Thousands and thousands. I have no real way of accurately counting but I've gon through 10k just in subsonic 9mm since the last Knob Creek MG shoot.
