Re: $4 a round to shoot!
For any of my hobbies, I never add up how much all the crap costs. If I added up how much I spent I bike parts, I'd probably have blood spurting out of my nose, and forget about shooting - that would induce sudden death. I just enjoy doing them and don't worry about cost, too much. Its not like I'm going to stop shooting, just because it cost a little more.
If I had to compute the cost of a pound of Elk, based on a realistic estimate, it would be like $600/lb, so you're damn right it tastes great!
Do yourself a favor and stop adding up how much all that stuff costs. Trust me, its liberating. It will take some practice, but its worth it.
