British Sniper sets new record

I have always loved snipers. They are disciplined, highly skilled and committed.

Here's a great story about a British sniper who took out two Taliban targets from 1.5 miles away.

Amazing.

Such cowards, hiding miles away lying in the brush taking such shots. Can't do the man face to face, eh?

I don't believe it. I believe he was a great distance away but I think they "padded" the mileage so as he could get the record. The Brits have a history of being notricious liars when it comes to military stuff.

You dont know too much about warfare do you.Stay at home and play Xbox and fullfill your delusions.

1600 yards is about right for the .338 Lapua,however it can go a bit farther in the hands of a skilled shooter.I wouldnt fall for the harrassing fire nonsense.

I like my AI AW in .338 lapua.Its really flat shooting and the recoil is very manageable.The Nightforce NSX scope is sweet and the 5-22x is very handy.

Ammunitions is very expensive,even when you reload.But when you dont need the big .50,the .338 is just the ticket.

I don't like that they gave his name and home town. Some jihadist MFer will go there and kill his family.

PS Where have you been lately? Miss your commentary.

Most troops today especially in the west have to use such tactics due to the poor physical quality of their troops. American military troop are in very poor shape compared to the rest of the world.

Based on modern troops using 22 cal. rifles. Big guns kick too hard, and are way too heavy..... Such soft bodies here in Amerika....

All NATO troops use 5.56x45 rifles/SAWs.The Russains use 5.45x39 chambered weapons,which is less powerful than 5.56.

You flawed logic and reasoning skills.

I guess its alol so-called men today. They can't even lick their grandpa's boots.Back in the day, they wore wool uniforms, carried heavier 30 cal rifles and stomped all over the world, unlike those troops today who ride about in APC's......

Snipers are great force multipliers and an intelligence gathering asset.
