How many rounds do you shoot a week?

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

I usually shoot anywhere from around 50-80 rounds a week out of my 4 calibers, 222, had my 220 swift, 25-06, now a 270 win, and lastly my 300 rum. I like to stay on top of my game with all my calibers, so I shoot them all at least once to twice a week, putting anywehre from 10-20 shells downrange of each caliber, usually 300 and 525 yards.

Some weeks, none.

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

I have the same philosophy as you remingtonman I stay accurate with all rifles...although the .221 gets addictive a otb remington LS limited and the little bugger shoots 5$ a box barnes 50gr hp into sub 1/4" moa..It sounds like a lie but most of the run has been freakish accurate it will digest anything pretty well until about 60grs it shoot 55gr noslers extremely well..anyways I will easily shoot 10, 10shot groups with it in 1 session.( I am very ammo costly ) How do you manage to shoot a RUM 20 times..that is like 8lbs of powder :P


(edit I forgot to mention I am setting here just off work prepping .221 and 300wsm cases [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

Through the years it has varied from 50 - 200 rounds a day to less than 5 rounds a month. THis said, I shoot handguns as well as rifles.

Over the past two months however, I haven't felt like touching off any, due only to my back being screwed. I am getting better though,(I hope), and that will soon change one way or another.

We had the last package of pork sausage last night, and that will require me to hit some woods soon to restock the freezer.

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

I only shoot about twice a month and between all my guns, 25-06, 270, 30-06 & 300 winny I shoot about 100 rounds between them in a day. I have a 100yrd range right across the road in the field. If I want to shoot farther I have to go up in the woods to a number of clearcuts. I hurt my shoulder last week so its gonna be a while before I get to shoot much again.

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

What Roy said.

I drive for 45 minutes to get to the range so I take several guns and alternate with them to keep the barrels cool. Right now I am playing with 22lr Rimfire and that involves a lot more shooting just to make holes in the target.

I drive for over two hours to get to a place to hunt.

Once hunting season starts in September I do not shoot much. Time is devoted to acting like I am interested in killing something. I may hunt all day and fire one shot and kill one squirrel or I may not even fire a shot or I may get bored and start shooting at leaves floating down the river. This is balanced out by dove season where I measure my shotgun shells by the wheelbbarrow load. Don't usually need a wheel barrow to haul the doves back in.

Then there is bow season which is filled with shooting at everything except deer.
