if you don't reload, or have deep pockets, then long distance shooting isn't goingto work out very well for you. you are going to end up very disappointed.
to be able to shoot accurately at long ranges requires lots of trigger time, which lots of bullets sent down range. ammo is going to be expensive if you don't reload for the premium ammo. even if you buy the cheaper ammo, it's going to be expensive.
in a nutshell, long range shooting is not geared for those on a tight budget.
