Guys,

I'm curious how many rounds you load at a time for different purpose firearms?

Example:

Pistols -
9mm
.357
.45

Rifles -
Small Game Rifle ex: 22-250
Deer Rifle ex: .270
Target Rifle
Etc

Home Defense

Thanks,

100% depends on the situation but typically in 100 or 50 count batches for pistol, target or varmint ammo. For hunting sometimes 20 sometimes 50 depending on how low I am.

as said ^ ^ ^ it depends on what it is.
proven hunting rifle rounds as few as 5 or 10
sometimes. you really should only need 1 per deer.
i load them mainly to refill the box for enough
for foul/zero check and a few to hunt with.
last time i loaded g.p. cast pistol rounds i
loaded 1500 for the firearm they were for.

Grandkids shot up most of my ammo last month. I loaded up about 300 9mm, 200 38's, 200 357's, and 400 223's. I am officially restocked...for now.

I don't get too much ahead on actual ammunition loaded although I have quite a few 9mm's and .223's.
On others for Hunting Target type stuff 50-80 rounds. Now the stuff it takes to load plenty I tend to overdo.
I am ready and prepared to suffer thru whatever Hillary throws out there.

Depends on the gun, what I have time to load, and what is coming up. Last time I loaded was two weeks ago before a match. Loaded 350 rounds weighing every charge on a Chargemaster, because that's what I needed.

7 Rem Mag gets brought out for special occasions, so if I have a full or half full box of 50, I'm good.

At this point I only reload for my .308 target/hunting rifle and for a Mosin Nagant. I load up 40 or 50 at a time; but I also keep quite a bit of factory ammo tucked away just in case.

With pistol loads I usually load.until I run out of materials.
On proven rifle loads I try to load.100.at a time.
I completely prep my rifle.brass and prime all of it Because I use a turret press I powder and seat in consecutive operations. To me it makes it faster safer and more.consistent

I load about 25 rounds for each rifle, I normally take about 4 rifles when I head out to the range twice or 3 times a month. If taking one or two rifles, I'll load more.

I am curious to see Chad's post on here. eek2
