U.S. Army forces deployed in Europe recently held a Jäger Shot competition for precision rifle teams and some great images and videos have been released from the event.
The competition, being conducted by the 7th Army Training Command at Germany's Grafenwoehr Training Area this week, is designed "to promote team building, strengthen techniques, build esprit de corps and enhance mentorship within the sniper community."
The marksmen photographed so far at Jager Shot 2020 were from forward-deployed lines, not special operations units, so you didn't get to see a lot of SOCOM-level precision rifles like the FN SCAR MK 20 SSR or the new Barrett MRAD-based Mk 22 ASR, but there were plenty of M110s and M2010s. Nonetheless, there was a ton of variation between rifles, with each shooter customizing their gun via different rattle can jobs and scrim
Besides the bolt-action M2010, a familiar auto-loader was also front and center.
With 12 teams drawn from across units in Europe for the competition, the Army also released footage of the snipers and spotters confirming zero and conducting familiarization fire for data collection, which shows the rifles in action.
