I'm a member of my range (and unlike others, I don't have to pay everytime I go) so I go atleast once a week, sometimes more. Because I go frequently and haven't spend a range fee, I don't feel the need to shoot tons and tons to get my moneys worth. I probably average 50-75 rounds through my GP and LCR combined each time. Sometimes just 25 if I'm low on time.

When I get my SR1911, I'm sure my round count will go way up.

I reload so it's a little easier to justify shooting more.

I take lots of 22 ammo. Don't shoot it all up but have it just in case I decide to shoot a long time. Shoot a 45 APC more than anything so about 2 or 3 boxes or lead Semi WC. and a few jacketed ones. Last time shooting a Win 243 I took 2 boxes and only shot 5 rounds.
Better to have more than you need than running out.

I pay an annual membership fee in my LGS/Range so I can go any time for any length of time withou additional charges, which means ususally going every week for about one hour. Each time I bring 2 guns (rotated) with ~100 rnds/gun. If I develop a new load then the number of rounds depends on where in the development process I am, it may be 25, or may be 100.

Being all rimfire, I can shoot a lot. I usually bring three guns, and a 550 round bulk pack, plus end up shooting a hundred or so CCI. About thirty bucks worth.

I am a member of a private range 5 miles from my house lucky me especially lucky in northern nj and I ususally fire 100 rounds handgun or 200 pistol carbine or 300 22 lr. since it is only 5 miles I go once a week on monday when I am off work so range is empty.

Usually a 50rnds or so per gun. I do not reload, and have to buget my ammo $$ out. I am working on geting a .22cal range gun, either the new rugar SR22 or the beretta NEOS, and likely the count will go up.

I usually pack 200 rounds in the range bag ... half .38 & half .357. Bag starts getting heavy with more than that.

+1 - same here, but it depends on how many guns I take with me. If I'm shooting several different calibers, I'll usually take at least 150 per caliber.
