Depends on the competition. Doesn’t sound like a sniper match. Are you bivwacking (bivouacking) like in mammoth? If not, like the others said, hydrate. Bring snacks. Appropriate footwear is important. Especially if it’s anything like sniperhide cup or mammoth sniper challenge. I bring protein shakes. I don’t care about what anyone says about sugar. Glucose makes the brain work. It’s in IV solution (LR).This weekend I have my first two man sniper match (this is my first centerfire match) and I am wanting to know what people all carry with them. There will be lots of walking and targets out to 1400 yd. I have the normal stuff, gun, ammo, bags, binos, range finder, spotter, tripod, hard data, and I might be borrowing a kestrel. What else do I need and what else is nice to have? Thank you all for the help in advance.
That being said, I eat clean, so I’m not talking about downing a can of Mountain Dew mid match. Especially when rucking, which is common in most sniper challenges. If you dip, bring a log. Nicotine effects accuracy.
If its not like this, then it’s not a sniper match. It’s a precision rifle match. In which case, just show up with whatever you would take to the range.
Since I compete a little more competitively, I show up with my tools in one bag, ammo in another bag, rifle, back up rifle. The stage gear (tripod, bags, etc) my kestrel and stuff. Stuff includes stuff shared if you have a partner spotting or for viewers like tripod mounting plate with the whole tree setup. None of that is necessary to have fun.
