Yeah, I got it as a fun gun. No real purpose other than steel. You're correct on ammo - $2/round. I found some at Bass Pro for $31.99 for a 20 round box.I will say this...
Thumpers can be fun and you might want to consider the reloading route. You can get cheaper (relatively speaking) ammo choices for plinking since the brass accepts. 45 ACP, .45 Long Colt and .454 diameter bullets. Just standard FMJ or cast lead rounds work well for ringing steel and won't break the budget. It's a small rifle primer and reasonably easy to reload with the straight wall case.
Just don't expect much after 150 yards or so lol. Drops like a rock at 200 and steadily moves down from there.

I got it as a 10" sbr setup. Have you heard of Bear Creek Arsenal? Found them on the internet. $219 for the complete upper that includes the BCG. Couldn't pass it up.
