How long does it take you to shoot 1000 rnds

I've got several several 100 reload rounds that are about 20yo or more, bout a 1000 reloads, and I can't seem to make a dent in the total.

I take a 100 to 200 rnds with me to go shooting, (which is less then my new years resolution to shoot more often), and after 50 or so shots fired, I'm had enough. I need better targets. Something along Hickok45's set up would be a nice shooting area that would keep me going for a good long while.

When I use to live in the high desert there was lots of trash to shoot, now here in Montana it's all clean pristine wilderness. Good for living, but bad for shooting.

I would love to have HickOk45's range in my back yard..

We can go through 1K rounds in 2-3 range sessions but would love to try it in one some day..

I've easily done 500 rounds in a session.

But I also have (25) 8 round Kimpro Tac Mags and a Maglula UpLULA Pistol Magazine Loader.

Helps to load before you shoot.

Me and you both, would love to have a range like Hickok in the back yard.

I had a 50 round box and a half plus I think 22 loaded magazines with about 7 rounds each. Little over 200 rounds and when it was gone I was ready to go.
I could maybe shoot more from the Pro model but not the Ultra.

Depends on the caliber. When I had friends that lived in more rural areas, we could go through 1,000 22LR rounds in a weekend. My best man and I once went through 1/2 case of Chinese 7.62x39mm (it came packed in 1360 round crates then) in an afternoon.

Then again I knew one of our friends who went through 6,000 rounds of 22-250 in South Dakota during a week's vacation. He also went through the barrel...

One day last year I went through 500 rounds of .45, 9mm and .380 in one range trip. That was the first time I was ever happy to leave the range. I usually shoot between 200 and 300 rounds a trip.

His videos are watched by millions and I would bet he has many sponsors that give him anything he wants for nada...
