    Excluding shotgun, approx. how much centerfire/rimfire do you shoot in a year? Do you shoot in activities at a club? Do you reload? How many calibers do you shoot/reload for? What is the caliber rifle/pistol that is your favorite? How many rounds do you reload in a year? Do you shoot varmints? How many rounds for varmints? How many years of shooting/reloading experience do you have? What is the next caliber for rifle/pistol you would like to have? What firearm have you fired the most rounds through? Just curious. jhjimbo

    To start off, i have been shooting over 55 years and reloading for over 40. Reloading up to 3,000 per year in 12 calibers. I shoot at a club in bowling pins, silhouette, IDPA. Rifle calibers i shoot about 400 per year , varmints about 400-500. .22 about 500 and .22mag about 100. My favorite calibers are .40s&w, 6.5x55 and .22-250, 44mag. My most used rifle is a Rem 700 in 30-06 about 2500 rounds. Rem 700 22-250 new with only 300 at this time. My next purchase will be the .17Super Mag.

              When I was big game hunting, it was a rare year when I shot more than half a dozen rounds in the field and only as much as needed on the range to ensure the gun was sited in (that varied). As you can see, I usually made those half dozen rounds count!

                    You sound like a friend of mine, a guide in the Adirondaks. We were going to hunt black bear one afternoon and i did not have a rifle. He loaned me a Winchester 71 .348 in about 98% condition. The he gave me 3 shells and said don't miss. LOL

                      How much shooting each year? Now that I am retired, am at the range 2-3 times per week. I hunt approximately 100 days per year, excluding travel. These are days actually on the ground. No club activities, though recently participated in a charity shoot, 100 yards off African sticks which I won.
                      Do I reload? Yes, for 65 years. Have no idea how many calibers, but everything from 22-250 through 500 Jeffery, including several wildcats. Do not Handload as much as I used to, do to better factory ammo, old age, and health issues. Have know idea how many rounds loaded per year.
                      Am trying to cut down on rifle inventory, rather than increase it.
                      What rifle have I fired the most rounds through? Obviously 22LR, followed by 22-250. For big game a 300 Win Mag and 416 Rigby.
                      Being a gun nut, I use many more different calibers than I need to for hunting.

                      Obviously, in my retirement I do not play golf or tennis. Nor do I go on cruises, ball room dance, nor play bridge.

                      Kindest Regards To All

                        This "smart machine" changed the spelling on two words. "do " should have been due, and "know" should have been no. Sorry

                            Mr Palumbo,
                            Thank you. I have been a very lucky man. Have made plenty of mistakes, but have always kept my priorities straight. Have worked hard so that I could afford to hunt.
                            Did I mention I used to SCUBA dive with my son and daughter? I know you enjoy that sport. Hope some of my luck rubs off on you. All The Best
