I found that someone stated that modern production was Two Billion per year (2,000,000,000). The NRA claims 4.25 million member (4,250,000). Two billion dived by 4.25 million is 470 rounds per NRA member. ----— WHAT YOU SAY.
I can say that I go trough. 500 at the range in an hour or two. For target plinking you can burn through many many rounds. I am easily at 2500+ year and I don't shoot that often. I know folks that use that a month.
I just found that CCI is capable of four million per day see [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvK9QlQtrKI[/ame] and [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdNkfTS0lOQ[/ame]
So I would say two billion is not close. I could not believe that 470 rounds per NRA member was close. I use ten times that per year.
