I have no idea!

I go to the range at least once a month year round, more likely twice a month.
Each range trip, I shoot my trusty bolt action .22 300-400 times off hand at soda cans at 100 yards to get warmed up, by the time I'm warmed up, I'm hitting the soda can 10 to 15 times in a row. Then I take out one of the 3 or 4 milsurps I bring along, and shoot 20 to 100 rounds through each one. Then I might shoot 20 rounds through my deer rifle or my muzzle loader before calling it a day.

I also shoot 3 or 4 high power rifle matches a year which require a bout a half dozen trips to the range in the month before each match to get my handloads working right and get enough practice from each position.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms... who's bringing the chips?

The worst thing is that for each trip to the range I spend about 2 hours getiing my gear together, another 5 or 6 hours reloading, another hour stopping at the store to pick up .22 ammo cleaning supplies and targets, and the trip to the range is 1 hour each way for me.

Every one should be familar with the good old saying...

PRACTICE MAKES PREFECT. Though nothing can be perfect, this is a very accurate statement. As hunters, we need to keep our skills sharpend and tools conditioned and in good working order.

I wouldn't messure it by how many rounds any given person shoots even though I enjoy shooting all day long, when ever I can. This doesn't make me any less skilled than the other.

I get to practice very little and have alway nailed my targets and game. The most important issue to me is the good mechanics of my gun the quality of my ammo, and the security the I can personaly place my shots well.

KEEP HUNTING THE GREAT OUTDOORS & GOD ALIVE, PASS IT ON!

I shoot on average 300 clay birds a week year round and .22 rifle and handgun 2-3x's perweek usually about 150 rounds total. Some .45 once a week and various center fire and my muzzleloader every few weeks.
I have the advantage of being retired and belonging and working at a commercial range so can do quite a bit. I do slack off a bit come Oct.-Jan., after all would you rather be hunting or target shooting?

I get to the range on average about twice a month, when I go I pack 2 rifles and one handgun each time, I'll load 50 rds for each rifle and 200 for each pistol. In the 2 months before hunting season I focus on the 2 rifles that I would most likely use for hunting and the 357 that is at my side. So let's do some math, rifle = 1500 to 2000 rds a year, pistol = around 6000 rds a year. Good thing I reload or I'd be so broke i wouldn't be able to afford my licenses.
