    between 5 and 6 hundred a month most of the time, sometimes less. Most of the time it hangs around this number, between the three pistol calibers I load for.

    My rifles have been sitting for a while so aren't contributing to my numbers.

    It ranges between none and 500. Now that I shared how many I do, how about you share how many you do.

    I'm all over the map. Like someone else posted...some months 0 and others over a thousand. It really just depends on how much I get to the range.

    Annually between 5k and 6k.... But I normally do these all in one month (week) then just shoot the rest of the time.

    I haven't loaded much in the last month since deer season has set in. I'm pushing 18,000 for the year which equates to 2,000 per month. As soon as deer season closes on Jan 1st I will crank back up. I have 2k 230gr .452 lead bullets, 2k Berry's 180gr .401 bullets waiting on my bench. Between my wife, and I we shoot 1k - 1.5k per month for IDPA, and practice.

    when I am busy working I will only load 1000--1500 a month. So then when things are slack at work I play catch up and load 12K to 15K a month to replace what I dipped into when I was busy. In a typical year I will almost fill a 2 gallon bucket with spent primers. I do not dare to keep count but lets just say I have Powder Valley and Widners on speed dial.:D

    3 or 4 rounds per month as needed for local varmints.

    But a few hundred over the last month for deer hunting.

    Since I started I've loaded from 0-4000 per month. Average is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 4-500/month. This month I've only loaded 20 rounds so far. Just some test loads for my Mosin. Last month was over 2k of various calibers.

    If I remember right, I started counting about mid February.
    and according to my notepad, I've reloaded over 11,000 rounds so far.
    So that's about 9 months worth.

    My New Years Resolution for 2013 will be to keep an accurate count all year.
    (if I don't forget to mark each box down & if I don't forget where in the heck I put my notepad.)

    between 500 and 1500, depending on how much I get to shoot.

    In the summer, maybe 1000 a month. DUring the winter when it's 10 degrees and a 45 MPH wind, maybe 10,000. In the winter when it's 50 degrees and no wind, none. I'm unloading as much as I can before the damned wind starfts up again. :D

    I've been loading for about 2 months now and I've done about 350 rounds. So, about 175 / month. But that will probably go up significantly. :)

    I'm all over the place as well. It depends on a lot of things. During deer season, every spare minute is spent in the woods, so I get nearly no loading done from November to January. Other months just depends on how busy I am and how often I get to the range.

    I found it easier to keep track of rounds loaded by counting primer boxes. ;)

    I average 500-2000+/month for pistol. For rifle, depends on how cold/hot it is to shoot.

    I'm in the same boat as Medalguy. In the past 3 months I would say I've loaded around 4-500 rounds. I've been busy making more brass available to load while its nice!

    In the next 3 (cold) months I will be inside a lot more than outside. Going by what I loaded last winter I would estimate around 3-4K rounds. About half of those are rifle rounds loaded on a single.

    I don't keep track of how many I load per month, I just load them as I use them or need them.

    If I had to guess probably between 200-300 a month.

    Lately only a couple hundred. But I've been cranking out cast bullets by the bucket. I will switch gears when the weather warms and I don't want to be near molten lead.
