For pistols, I'll generally do 3-500 in a session. Just depends on my mood or if I'm too tired to do much more. I don't develop loads with pistols. Don't care enough and the guns way more accurate than I am. Don't shoot matches and they seem to land where I'm aiming anyway so that's good enough for me. I'll usually just go somewhere around 3/4 of the way between an advertised starting load and max load and go to town. If I split it up into a couple days, I'll have more than I'll need to last me a good while before I do it all over again. I also don't load just because I have some brass laying around. I'll wait until the can gets low so I'm not shooting out the same brass all the time to keep a good rotation going.

The rifle is my money maker. I spend much more time weighing charges and getting picky for them. Never shot any official matches but I've made a few bucks on some friendly wagers :)

I suppose my answer would have to be no as far as the original question goes if we're talking about pistols. Rifles, yes, sometimes I need a break because it starts to get tedious and I don't like when it starts to feel like work. I like to load because it let's me get into my own little world and keeps my hands busy. If it starts to feel like work, it takes all the pleasure out of it.
