Re: How Many Centerfire Rounds Do You Fire Per Year?

Shoting is like learnig to play the piano , the more you practice , the better you get . Like I tell my wife when we're shooting our pistols " that weapon should be an extention of your arm ". This way,God forbid the time ever comes, pulling the weapon & firing should be as second nature . Practice makes perfect .

Re: How Many Centerfire Rounds Do You Fire Per Year?

Prior to 12/2010 I used to shoot approx 200 x 223 Remington plus 100 x 303 British rounds per year.
This was part of load development/ learning about reloading/ familiarization with my rifles ( 303Br SMLE sporterised and 223 Rem CZ527 American)/ target practice and occasionally hunting.
I purchased 2 new rifles in 12/2010(a Left Hand CZ527 American in 223 Rem) and 2/2011(a Left Hand Ruger Hawkeye African in 375 Ruger) and in them I have fired 100 x 223 Rem and 100 x 375 Ruger.
For the future I will probably mix the use of the 303 and 375 for hunting to minimise the long term effects of recoil on my allready damaged neck (my doctor advised this due to some spinal damage - result of a previous accident).
Estimated future yearly minimum number of rounds fired - 100 x 223 Rem, 50 x 303 British and 50 x 375 Ruger.

Safe shooting.

2 ea 220 swifts @ 750 rounds ea./yr

2 ea 243 @ 500 rounds ea./ yr

1 ea 1895 Win 30-40 Krag, My Grandfathers gun, 50 rounds a year

300 Wby Mag 250 rounds a year, and should shoot a lot more at longer ranges and tune up to shoot better at long ranges. Im behind after a few years of off time from injuries. Good to be back shooting much more this year already and enjoying these forums immensely. Great Folks and vast experience to learn from here. Nice to find this site this spring.

1 to 3K here, and I'm over 1K already this year. Three new rifles since November will put the hurt on what the supply shelf looks like.

Somewhere between 500 and 1,000. A lot of them at the range... some testing loads etc. and some because here in NSW, Australia it is a condition of holding a firearms license that you have to attend a club range at least 4 times a year. I probably fire no more than 150 actually hunting. I use several single shot centerfire rifles though.
