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
