Hi guys,

I heard that the 13km ruck sack march has been done away with at BMOQ, and replaced with something called the Mach and Shoot. Is this true, and if so can anyone shed some light on what the March and Shoot entails? Thanks in advance,

It is comprised of a:

a) March and
b) Shoot.

Pretty much says it all in the title.  8)

You still carry a 32.5lbs rucksack, you march 3.5km to the range, 5 shots standing, 5 kneeling, 5 prone. Then put back on your gear and march 3km back to a field to do a 25m casualty drag, 50m army crawl and a 200m stretcher carry. Then put your gear on and go the last .5 to the gym where you field strip your weapon in 40sec and reassemble in 60sec. Its about an hour 20min to 30min.

That sounds like a good little test.  :nod:
