    The first 8 rds of carry ammo that has been in my gun ( Gold Dot HP's) just to insure no malfuntions. Then generally 100 rds. of fmj. Finish the session off with the last 10 rounds of carry ammo just to end with the feel of the +P carry ammo.

    100-400 depending on what I'm practicing and what guns I bring with me.

    Usually around 100rds. for the AR & AK, and 40-50rds. of 9mm for Kahr PM9. If the daughters are with me, a whole lot of .22LR. and maybe not so much of the other. We do this about once or twice a month.

    I usually get 100-250 through my pistols, and a box or two through a rifle, if I brought one.

    In a short session, less than 250. In a long one, 500-600 is typical. Depends on the goal of the session and how many guns are involved.

    I always shoot at least 200 rounds, especially if I'm working with more than one handgun. Never more than 300...

    HOWEVER, if we're talking about shooting any of my black rifles, I can EASILY gobble 500 rounds in a day of shooting. I can shoot 300+ rounds without having to reload any mags!

    This will surely go up after the betamag arrives...

    Between 200-300 rounds per visit. I get carried away at the end of the session and end up blasting more than I should.

    At my agency range, 60 rounds per visit is normal, as the qual course is 60 rounds. Normally, the qual course is the only shooting allowed on that range. The price is right, too; five bucks for 60 rounds of factory FMJ. It is rare I want to wait two to four hours until the next session. At a private range, where I pay a range fee, I try to shoot at least 200 rounds to justify the expense of the range fee.

    I shoot 20 Hornady TAP 230+p (my carry round) and 200-300 range ammo. I go to the range once or twice a month.
