ma-duece... one of the many reasons John Moses Browning was the greatest gun designer who ever lived.
Tunsten-carbide tipped? Dang!!
yeah, Im still waiting for an American sniper to reclaim the longest-confirmed-kill sniper shot. Right now a Canadian has the title. He sniped a guy at like 2200m in Afghanistan. Thats a hell of a shot.
I heard a Canadian had the record for the farthest confirmed sniper kill, that's pretty cool! 1.509 miles (2430 meters) is a pretty damn long shot...
Just googled it...
From here... http://www.headsbunker.com/html/2005/01/dirtbag-dead-marine-sniper-sets-record.html
146 feet of 'drop' and in the air for 4 seconds...
canadian, i always thought hathcock was american?
adn i believe his was 2 miles...
our Allies The Brits dont do too bad either.
Keep in mind the guy was using a .308 not a .50 cal.
I love terminal ballististics and capability video's.
If you can buy one you should.
Mr. Barrett is a vigilant defender of citizins 2nd amendment rights.
And he makes an awesome .50!
It says right there that Hathcocks was 250 meters shorter than Perry's record breaking shot...
Yeah but Col Carlos Hathcock made that 2500yd shot with a 50 cal M2 machine gun set up to fire single shots with a scope mounted on it.
Not a .50 cal sniper rifle.
GySgt. Calos Hathcock was credited with
93 confirmed kills while serving in Vietnam
Un-Officially, his body count exceeds 300.
He even took out a NVA general at 800 yds with a Winchester .308
"One shot One Kill"
yeah, 146' of drop, thats some crazy stuff. I haven't had any luck with google, but I remember an article in the paper about a guy from my home town of Vancouver, WA who had a custom built .50 BMG rifle and he won some kind of national 1000 yard shooting comp in the mid 90s. He had a 5 shot group that was like 2.7" or something.. it was something crazy like that...
