    Monthly Round Usage

    I'm curious about others. How many rounds do you typically shoot in a month and how has that changed since the shortages started happening?

    I'm shooting about 1000 rounds a month, give or take and I reload so as long as I can keep finding primers (I stock up at gun shows) I'm still in business.

    Now its only about 250-500 because it's hard to find ammo.

    Only a few hundred rounds per month...which has decreased from the original number. I have chosen to save the 'expensive ammo' for courses.

    I tend to shoot somewhere around 500 rounds a month, I used to shoot more but with the shortages I can't really afford to shoot like I used to, and man do I miss the lost shooting time!

    Don't shoot much anymore as I'm too busy loading for others.

    I usually can only go about once, maybe twice amonth to the range, and will shoot anywhere from 100-400 rounds when I go depending on how many firearms I take with me, and the time I have to spend.

    I've never been a huge range rat.......usually twice a month and a couple of hundred rounds to keep relatively sharp. These days it's half that.

    I probably get to the range once to twice a month and shoot a total of 200-400 rounds. It's too darn expensive to shoot more than that!

    I try to get in twice a week - it's my "me" time.

    1000 .22lr
    250 .45acp
    100 9mm

    That is approximate. Sometimes more sometimes less. The best investment I ever made was buying a .22 conversion for my .45.
