No. There is a real cost in dollars to accomplish that feat, an investment in
equipment and time spent in research. I started out with an investment of
1400 dollars. That bought a rifle, scope, spotting scope, and ammo. Of
course these items are of the low dollar category, but very serviceable.

Buying a piece here and there I now have a reloading set up, reloading
.223, 7mm, 30-06, 30-30, 45 auto. and 44 Mag.

It's not that I don't shoot those distances, It's learning the stances, breath
control and body control necessary for that kind of shooting. I have spent
eight months, shooting once and sometimes twice a week on the range
shooting at 100 and 200 yards to get four shot groups in the Moa. circle.
If it's a good day I will walk the targets out to 1k.

    1Hunter,
    Sounds like your on the right track. I do too practice in all four positions. It is humbling. I only load 223,308,9mm and 45acp. I also anneal and that alone saves cost. I soak up alot of knowledge from other experienced shooters and tailer them to my needs and do plenty of reading on this site alone. Still I am saving up to take up long range coarse so I don't develop bad habits.

    David sounds like a plan. The club I belong to in Central Oregon has a multitude
    of Experts in almost every discipline you can imagine. They are very gracious
    in sharing their knowledge.

    You sound a lot like me mate. I load for 14 different chamberings and a few double ups but would not have it any other way. I got a call from my smith today to say he had finnished another rifle in 6mm-06 for me so there goes another $4200 and change and its only February. Just a couple of other new rifles this season and I will be happy.
    Then I will start buying some for the wife and daughter they have both just sat their WIT and are getting licences and permits sorted now.
    I think its going to be an expensive year. I spent $350 on primers last week after learning of the problems with supply.
