    This year will be hard on the wallet!!! Building a Fred Wells takedown/multi barrel one in 416 Rigby and the other in 338 Lapua. The 300 Jarrett is already in process along with the 280 AI! So little money so many guns lol!!

    Len,

    I'll spill more than $251 worth of beer at camp. :D I think you need to increase your increments...

    Something like:

    0 - $2500
    $2501 - $5000
    $5001 - $10000
    etc...

    Applying for tags alone (Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico) will almost max me out on your scale.

    9,000 miles at 20 mpg at $2.00 a gallon = $900.00
    Antelope licenses for 2 = $720.00
    Deer and elk tags for two = $2,000.00
    Maryland licenses for 2 = $300
    Food and supplies for 45 days = $900.00
    New set of tires for front = $200.00
    New tents = $300.00
    Miscellaneous = $500.00
    New boots $200.00

    Total $6,000 give or take a few bullets here or there.

    New guns will be about $4,000.

    New PSE X Force LD with everything $1,200.

    Len,

    I too think you need to increase the increments.

    I should have clarified, I meant without the cost of travel, tags.

    Just guns, supplies, equipment.

    Just the NF scope, bullets, brass and a few other items almost puts me over the top for one gun, not including the remaining $$ for the rifle and shootin' supplies for the other guns!
