Jackaroo, # 29989 Posted March 10, 2017 Share Posted March 10, 2017 Did some analysis of this exercise to see how much money the Scouts can make one way or the other. First lets look at the present arrangement We had 750 shooters for cowboy and 130 for WB round figures. So WB had approx 75 rounds of rifle and 230 rounds of pistol,...that's 305 rounds of brass per shooter on the ground. ......305 x 130 = 39650 Cowboy we had 120 rifle, pistol we kept. 120 x 750 = 90000 Total Approx 129650 Then we still had warm up and speed side matches etc. lets call it 150000 rounds of brass on the ground. The Scouts collected, and bagged in bags of approx 200 rounds/bag at a selling price of an average of $18.00/bag. So 150000/200 = 750 bags x $18.00 = $13500.00 Next lets look at if the Scouts picked it up on the day and returned it to the shooter and each shooter gave a tip of say an average of $8.00 I think most cowboys would give $10.00 a day, but if some only gave $5.00 then we have the average,...so now 750 shooters x $8.00 x 3 days for cowboy = $18000.00 Then WB shooters 130 x $8.00 x 3 days = $3120.00......Grand Total $21320.00????? Don't know what others hooters think, but I'd prefer my own brass back, cause what you buy back a lot of it is throw away, I found. Anyway, this may have been just a fruitless exercise cause (I don't have much to do at the moment) and because it's ain't School Holidays then. Any thoughts out there, .....have a good weekend.
