I read an article yesterday that the Sandy Hook shooter "topped off" his AR-15 several times, leaving as many as 15 rounds in discarded magazines. I think this guy played too many video games.
Topping off when it is safe to do so is a strategically smart thing to do, especially when you have a huge surplus.

Besides the North Hollywood Shootout and Waco I cannot think of a single "movie style" mass shooting/shootout where hundreds or thousands of rounds were fired.
Cho fired over 170 rounds in Norris Hall and had more than 200 unfired rounds left.

Klebold and Harris fired nearly 190 rounds between the two of them (121 and 67, IIRC).

Anders Brevik easily fired hundreds of rounds in Norway.
