I'm surprised something like that scope hadn't come out sooner. But I think when they release the MSRP on that thing it will turn ouot to be extremely cost prohibitive

It is sold as a package and start about $14,000.
You still need to be able to read and manually dial or hold for the wind. It is the answer to a question nobody asked.

this.

wind and target movement is the real factor in long range shooting. distance and bullet drop isnt that difficult an issue

I am not a sniper, so I probably have no business posting here, but I was told that being a sniper is very different than just being able to shoot.


Ugh... edit to add: The first comment under the video is "civilians shouldn't get to own this."

Your right, a sniper does a LOT more than just shoot his/her target. They have to get to their target, and then get out of there. They are trained to hide amazingly well using their surroundings.
