If you had a rig costing 2k for example, at what level would you say the pellets are too costly?

For example, travel 200 miles each way to a shoot, 400 miles at 40p is 160, add an overnight stay say 60. You've spent 220 to shoot 50 pellets without pulling the trigger. That is over 4 a shot. If it was a clay pigeon shoot and not a FT comp, you'd expect to pay 20p each for your fifty 12g shells, that is still only 10 for your ammo but it makes a tin of 500 cost 100....!
Are you suggesting after all the investment you should shoot any old crap off the floor Rich
