every mention of time i've seen refers to 8 seconds. Oswald most likely saw the fatal hit and stopped shooting. From watching the films i'd guess he had even more time than that.

the italian bolt action 6.5mm carcano holds 5 bullets in a push-through clip that when empty is ejected from the bottom of the rifle by a new 5 round clip inserted in the top. i have never heard whether or not they found any left over ammo but i would assume he would have had a full clip when he started and only stopped firing when he saw the fatal shot.
