I would have to say around 20% but I try really hard to not shoot any premium shells ever.

Well if it's a tank with low pen.... I'll shoot gold... Makes me happier.

I normally load enough for one minute of continued fire for the tank. Otherwise it is 10 to 15 shells if the vehicle can hold a lot of ammo.

I usually carry about 3 rounds. I try to make credits every battle, so abstaining from gold is a way.

30 to 40% of the ammo capacity and I have no issue using it. There is a time and place for each ammo type and I utilize what I think best fits the situation. 

 

Something like my SkorpG I would fire AP at most targets but would want to have enough premium for super heavy tier 10s just in case. And if I run out of AP, then no big deal, I have lots of gold left. I also have a healthy dose of HE for other Glass cannons and lights

Usually 1/3 the ammo is prem even if pen is KRAP

A typical loadout consists of about 60% AP, 35% APCR/HEAT, and 5% HE/HESH/HEP

 

There are some tanks I have all gold in and there are some tanks I don't have gold in.  Some tanks have a 50/50 loadout (Ram II) others have a 33/33/33% loadout (T14 Heavy)

If I was Tsavo it would be 100% :P

 

I'm to cheap to shoot it a lot. A unicum told me at minimum have enough to do top tank hit points that you could see +1 for the bounce rng will bless you with.

I add 3 because I suck so just in case.

I usually take 1/3 premium, 2/3 standard, and the last bit HE. In my Bromwell I have 40/20/4 and in my Cent AX 40/20/8.

Depends on the tank.  If you can run all premium rounds and it cost effective for the tank to still turn a profit then by all means fire nothing but premium if you want.  Some tanks will end up costing more credits than you will make if you run premium rounds.  I like the 1/3 rule, but only use premium ammo on my teir V and below premium tanks because they are great credit earners to begin with.

Depends on the tank, but usually I'll carry about 20% premium. Unless I'm using my Valentine II, then it's all premium all the time.

it really depends on the tank and the gun you are using... id say around 20% (I fire 75% apcr in my PZ 1 c)

On Average I only carry about 5 to 10 rounds at most.  I find that if you know weak spots and can flank, you rarely need it and it can become a crutch to getting actually good.  Use it when needed.  Otherwise would rather rely on knowledge to pen tanks.

usually 25-30% premium of allotted ammo capacity. 2 HE in low capacity tanks, 5-6 HE in large capacity tanks.

Enough to at least kill a heavy tank of the top tier it sees...

Depends on tank. If I do load gold it's often a fair bit. I like low alpha high DPM tanks, and when you need gold for a target it's generally a beef wall.

10 on most, and a few with a full loadout due to very low pen. Slow high damage guns, usually about 2 or 3.
