First of all, welcome to Long Range Hunting.
I'm glad you got a shooter and that it's working out great for you. Sounds like you're hooked and you are right in what you said about it getting expensive.;)
Good luck with your elk hunt this fall and be sure and post pics of the elk if you are one of the lucky ones.
You should get some pics up of your gun so we can take a look because if you didn't know, when you get a new gun pics are mandatory around here.
