Default How many calibers?

Thought this would be interesting.How many different calibers do you shoot a year?Just made a list of this for myself and came up with 14 dofferent calibers that I try to get around to shooting once a year.Lots of fun but no wonder I am going broke.

Usually just three, a .22, 6.5x55 Swede and a .35 Whelen. I guess a whole lot less then you.

I currently handload for;

.45 ACP
.45 Colt
.454 Casull
.22-250 Rem
.234 Win
7mm STW
.300 WSM

I also shoot, but don't handload, 9mm Luger and .22LR (obviously).

I also have an assortment of .50cal muzzleloaders, some of which get shot more than others.

My next gun purchase will be a S&W 460XVR revolver OR a T/C Encore in .460 S&W Mag. Haven't decided for sure yet. I'm going to wait until the 460XVR hits the shelves before I decide, hopefully by the end of July. S&W is working the bugs out of the gun now.
