List everything I need for PPRC.
 
I'm compiling a list of the equip I need for long range shooting. Please help help out.

Rifle setup / the gun
Reloading equip
Range finder
Weather reader (actual name?)
Shooting mat
Sand bags / rear rest etc.
Spotting scope
Ballistics calculator
Paper / pen
Backpack to hold it all in.

Are you going to be shooting known distance on a range or going out to the desert/blm land and setting out targets?

If the first:

Rifle setup / the gun
Reloading equip
Range finder - not required
Weather reader (actual name?) - Most common is a Kestrel, nice to have but not required
Shooting mat - nice to have but not required for tactical type match. Shooting a High Power type match it ads a comfort factor
Sand bags / rear rest etc. - bipod for the front, small light weight bag/sand sock for the rear (if you feel you MUST have a rear bag)
Spotting scope - Only needed for High Power type matches
Ballistics calculator - make a dope card.
Paper / pen
Backpack to hold it all in

Family has farm land so I'll probably go out there and shoot unknown while learning.

Range finder - not required If you plan to shoot anywhere but a kd range, you will need a rangefinder. Without precisely removing the variable of distance, you won't learn much.
Weather reader (actual name?) - Most common is a Kestrel, nice to have but not required If you plan on shooting in multiple locations with widely differing elevations and climates, you need one. You could get a 2000ft+ density altitude shift from morning to afternoon.
Shooting mat - nice to have but not required for tactical type match. Shooting a High Power type match it ads a comfort factor
Sand bags / rear rest etc. - bipod for the front, small light weight bag/sand sock for the rear (if you feel you MUST have a rear bag)
Spotting scope - Only needed for High Power type matches
Ballistics calculator - make a dope card. With all of the apps available for smart phones now, there's no reason not to have one.
Paper / pen

OP-my differing answers in red. Otherwise good stuff. If you only plan to compete at Sac Valley, some of my recommendations are moot.

I'd recommend to come out to a NCPPRC practice, the next one is January 7th. Everyone is very friendly and will get you on the right track. Join the forum at www.ncpprc.com so you can see the threads. In my opinion, as for your gear:

Rifle: Rem. 700 5R.
Optics: Vortex Viper PST
Ammo: FGMM 175's or this: http://www.southwestammunition.com/p...mk-premium.htm The plus side with the SW ammo is that you'll have Lapua brass which will last 20 plus firings with annealing.
Bal. Calc: Ballistics FTE for Iphone or Bulletflight.

Yeah, I'll be at that practice. I've come to one before. Nothing like doing real learning.
