More than I plan to shoot. I hate running dry at the range!

I normally take 4 guns and 50 rounds for each. This week I was trying a new 45 Redhawk so shot the usual plus another 1/2 box for this 45. I shot only revolvers and only single action so this can take close to 3 hours.

How many rounds

I am lucky to shoot at local free ranges so a trip to the range is no big deal. I stop and shoot 10-150 rounds depending on my goal and leave, I am never there more than an hour or two.

Holy smokes, some of you must be loaded with cash!

I bring 100 rounds max, and that is usually how many I shoot of 9mm each time I go. When I bring my .22 LR rifle I bring 200 rounds or so.

I generally shoot 275 rounds each range trip (two trips per week). Lately, with ammo prices as they are, my typical mix will be 200 .22s, 50 9mm & 25 .45acp each trip.

really depends on the day if I bring 1 or 2 guns it's a minimum 100-200 of what ever I'm shooting(usually .22, .40s&W, or ,45ACP).

But if I'm playing zombie apocalypse and my dad comes along. its probably close to 1000-1500 rounds (just guessing) consisting of .22lr, 9mm, .40S&W, .45ACP, .38 special, .357 mag, 270win, 30-06, and 300 weatherby mag. I really need to get into reloading I already been saving my brass for 45 and 357

Not loaded with cash just learn to buy in bulk or little by little through out the year. It's kinda like saving money, if you know how to behave and not use it eventually it'll add up.

If I did not reload, it would be difficult. I do side jobs to pay for my ammo.
