My number is 270 rounds in one day. That number has been shot hundreds of times. An outdoor Bullseye match is 270 rounds.

About 600 or so that was split between two new pistols.

500. A buddy and I bought new Glocks and decided to break them in that day. So we split a case of Blazer and the rest is history.

22LR a couple of bricks. 9mm 400 to 500. I generally average 2 to 3 hundred 9mm every trip (before this stupid shortage). I'm still shooting about 1/2 brick of 22LR every time even now but trips are cut down to once a week. Man, I need things to get back to normal!

600 rounds a day for close to six weeks straight. I had to soak my hands in ice water every night towards the end of it.

Two-counting the warning shot. And as scarce as ammunition is, no more warning shots.

I can't recall how many rounds it was. Here is the story. I was in the Navy. I got "volunteered" to go with ten guys to an ammo depot the navy was turning over to the Army. We had to check every bunker to insure there was no live ammo anywhere. at the beginning of the 2nd day we found a pallet of 30-06. it was boxes of bandoleers with full En-block clips. I informed the LT. He crapped. It isn't suppose to be there. If I report it its going to be a ton of paper work. He just stood there for a few minutes then said. If it was empty brass I could report as scrap. Go back to the HQ and get everyone and M1 and turn it into scrap brass. It took us all day and my shoulder felt like hammered crap.

PS for you army-marine types a Navy LT is the same as your capt. You know railroad tracks on his collar.

One brick a day will keep the bad guys away. Seriously, a 550 cartridge brick of 22LR.

I have been averaging about 350 per week for a few weeks now because I had to slow down.

I used to shoot more when things were better component wise.

Most total? 1000+ on a vacation, in one day. About half was .22 the other half was various calibers.

600 rds 9mm in a defensive handgun course. It was a great day other than the fact that both thumbs felt like raw hamburger from loading mags. I had no mag loader at the time.

Honestly, I don't shoot that much in a single day anymore, since the range I am allowed to use is literally 2 miles from my house. WAY back in the day when I was young and ammo was dirt cheap I think I shot maybe 300 rounds in a day, mostly stupid spray and pray garbage.
Edit to add - I don't get to shoot in matches with my weird schedule over the years, so I have no idea what a match useage would entail.
