During match season (Right now!! Woohoo!!!), I shoot 66 rounds per match, 2 matches per month. During the winter months, about the same practicing. So, rough numbers, 130-150 per month. And of course, about 50 22LR per week, so about 200 per month.

But what do I know?

During prairie dog season:

22 mag--250



This is a rough estimate and only for June July and August...Darnit.

During the rest of the year, probably 20-30. I work up loads for different things for the sake of shooting and having fun. The range is an hour away.

I typically end up with 150-300 rounds fired per month.
Although this usually consists of 7.62x39 (few), .220 Swift or .243 Win (few), and .270 Win (many)... (Other cartridges available, but rarely shot.)

Most of my "rifle" rounds are launched from a .22 WMR. I only considered it viable for this poll since I am one of the crazy people that "re"load for it.

During the summer, I'll burn through about:

30 M1 Carbine --- 250-300 (in a couple Carbines)

30-06 --- 150-200 (in a Garand)

22-250 --- 50-100

22 lr --- 200-400 (10/22)

Thank Gosh I reload! I'd be BROKE if I didn't.

Five handguns, one shotgun but no rifle here.

And that makes me sad. :barf:
