How much paint a do you use a day?

I try to be stealthy, only shoot when I have a clear shot, and focus on movement more than firing, but can still unload if I ever need to...

But on average I use about:
~750 rounds / day
2 pods on my belt + hopper into game


How much do you guys shoot a day?

Around 3 or 4 bags. If I have any left over when I decide to leave, I usually give it to little kids or renters.

Less than a bag a day. Normally I'm either pumping or sporting a Mag or Cocker. Even with my super high speed markers I one ball up until I'm the last one alive. Then I put out about 4bps at the target so I can move.

Right?

A case usually can last me a day, but the last few times I went out I only took a hopper and 2 pods to thr field with me and only shot 3 bags so I am getting better at picking my shots.

300-600 balls usually, depending on the number of targets and their skill level. I play pump exclusively.

yep.. 250-350/day typical. My kid does about the same but plays a minimag.
I try pretty hard to break my pump habit every now and then, but it just feels wrong...like cheating somehow.

I guess it's hard to say, because it depends on how long I play; and what the actual game type/number of players is.

On a big field with a lot of players, I might go through a hopper and 3 pods - half of that is usually covering fire. Sometimes I go through as little as half a hopper. Also depends on if I'm having a good day or not (as in...did I get shot out pretty early in the game, or make it to the end).

But typically I shoot 3/4-1 case if I play from 10am-4pm.
