“You hear the far-off crack of a rifle, your fate finally registering in your subconscious far too late as the white hot bullet penetrates your skull. Another round slams into the chamber even as your lifeless body falls to the ground…”---Unknown sniper

Umm... Unknown "HALO" Sniper perhaps...

The snipers victim never hears the shot that kills him.

Anyone who's had rounds land near them that were fired from any significant distance knows that you hear the impact long before your hear the report from the rifle.

The guy killed by a snipers "head shot" would never have heard the rifle's report. His buddies would see him fall... Then hear the report off in the distance.

Not trying to bust your chops... The quote just made no sence.

A supersonic round moves faster than the sound of the report. Simple matter of physics.
