SAS sniper 'shot an ISIS jihadi dead from 1.5miles away' using the world's most powerful rifle

Post  fatbob5 on Sun May 21, 2017 5:16 pm

An SAS sniper is said to have shot dead an ISIS jihadi from 1.5miles away using the world's most powerful rifle. 

It took three whole seconds for the bullet to reach its target - the throat of an Islamic State terrorist in the Iraqi city of Mosul.  

The British marksman was using a CheyTac M200 Intervention gun which is produced in South Carolina and retails at $13,800 (£10,500) and can vaporise a person's organs from 2,500m....,.........

I used to own a Ruger .22 bullet rifle with rotary magazines of which I carried 10 in each of the 10 magz I took out with me, twaz considered a fair rifle in those days for bunny although I had a fair few Charlies, IMHO 100 yards was right on the boundary for a kill.

I used mostly Remington hollow point back then.

This soldier in question musta had a 'spotter'', well done that man.

Went out one night with the Ruger and a 25 round curved mag loaded with Hollow Points,   gutting some Rabbits at the back of the car I must have dropped it. A Farmer who was renting the field, not the owner,  picked it up and took it to the local Police Station were he said to the coppers " i'v found some DumDum  bullets.   The police contacted the owner of the land who had to give them my name and address.  Two Police cars and 6 coppers came to my house , I showed my Firearms Cert; and they gave me my mag back.   What a performance.

a performance perhaps but better safe than sorry where firearms are concerned don't you think.
