I realise that there are other costs involved which is why I was more after the Rifle and Scope cost. I may of not made it clear in my original post.
For example, for every Winter League event, apart from our own, we have the cost of a ferry to add to the petrol prices for the shoots travelled and that is on average £40 per event. You imagine doing say just the HFT events in the Summer and you are looking at adding another £20 just for the ferry.
I just enjoy shooting and am lucky enough to have a FT rig and another rifle and scope combination that will aloow me to do hunting and HFT if needed.
