    Backpacking and Long range shooting

    I am interested in the process of backpacking to a FFP and taking a shot at a undisclosed distance with a shooter spotter team. This being done by a 75-85 lb ruck with all the gear for a 3-4 day op and staging a location and sending out operations with a two to three man team being deployed and coming back for prep and planing. I was wondering if anyone has insight in to activity like this and recommended gear choices.

    I am from northern New Mexico, bottom of the Rocky mountains so my aera of operations will be as such Hilly, wet, cold, rocky ect

    I hardly ever hear this type of combo of topics being talked about i would be looking for some gear and moment recommendations

    ranges are 25m to about an effective of 1600m

    What I have been using
    Sako m995 7mm stw w/Nightforce shv
    Hornady eldx
    Kelty falcon 4000
    4-6 letters of water
    80-90rds of stw ammo
    sig sp2022- reason for it is, it is light
    flares
    9mm ammo
    data book
    9 days of rations
    higine kit
    repair kit - small wrenches things for that stuff
    550 cord
    d-tape
    stiner rangefinder 10x50
    leupould mk4 spoting scope
    serpa dropleg holster
    Russian gorka 4 pants
    rustic ridge nylon tan long sleave
    rustic ridge tan tactical pants
    old gi knee pads
    my partner will be running a variation of these with me

    Hm.

    So basically combining GoRuck with PRS/ELR stuff?

    I should point out to you that there are a LOT of people in general society--including a lot of people even here--that are kinda wary/touchy about people asking questions like you have.

    Want to compare round count? Resume's? We'll see just who's hiding behind his keyboard desperately trying to clackity clack his way to snipderdom and who's contributing something to shooting.
