Default Loading at the range?

Just out of curiousity, at the rangr I always load 1 cartridge at a time. Except with 22s. Does anybody else shoot this way or do you load mutiple cartridges. I'm not sure why I do this but it does seem safer. Any thoughts? SAs not included.

Depends what I'm doing. With a bolt action, yes I load one at a time. With my AR I'll load 3-5 in the mag and shoot that group.

If I'm shooting a Military Mauser or other controled feed, then I load the mag well. Semi auto, Cetme, AK, AR, I load mags.

bolt guns are loaded one at a time. Just because that is what I have done since I was 6 years old. 22lr I load to the max and plink away. my ar i just load the mags and start shooting.

I usually load bolt action push-feed rifles one at a time - Load Mauser and other CRFs several at a time.
