    Question: I am looking at the possibility of electronic hearing protection (in ear). Does anyone have solid experience with these types of products? I typically use in ear foam plugs but they clearly reduce the ability to communicate with the Primary/Secondary. Any input would be appreciated.

    Quick question regarding eating/logistics in the morning. Do we have time to reasonably heat up a freeze dried meal or do we just snap out of bed, break camp and haul ass? Making sure my calories plans make sense or not.

    Question regarding the use of a sling. I have a really nice sling I use for PRS but it is rather heavy. How much will a sling help for Mammoth (from those who have competed before). I am wondering if it is worth bringing or getting something simpler and lighter. I am just below 50 lbs including...

    What is everyone using for pacing, time tracking and mileage? I am looking at a bunch of runners watches from Garmin as well as the Garmin Fortrex 601. Currently all my tracking is being done via stop watch and google earth route mapping and I'd like to get more accurate data.

    I have not even bought the barrel but my previous .223 bolt gun (I sold a few years ago) I got a 77gr VLD to go a little over 3100 fps (hot load) but it was easily going 2950 so my plan was to get the 80gr ELD-M around 2800-2830 in a 24 inch barrel which I figure is a reasonable compromise for...

    Appreciate the input, if you noticed, the check marks turn off the weight for that item. I planned on messing with things and when you toggle the fields on and off it gives you live updates.

    Hey Everyone, I put together a detailed packing list for Mammoth as a provisional pass on Google sheets. I was wondering if people could take a look and give me opinions.

    I can post COF's for previous matches but these types of matches do not generally give out COF's before the match. Send me a pm if you'd like an example.
