Just one thing - if you buy one I don't think the caliber matters, But I know that Remington offers a HEAVY BARREL - The only way to go.

Good luck. Like JD said, you'll probably want to start small and burn as much ammo as you can afford. Grow into the service calibers.

Thanks for want to serve as well.

They're required to take shots at a mile and half, or is that in reference to something else in the thread?

In Afghanistan, in March of 2002, The longest-ever confirmed sniper kill was made by either Master Cpl. Arron Perry OR Corporal Robert Perry ( Depending on the story reference material ) of the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan during combat. Using a .50-caliber MacMillan TAC-50 rifle, Perry shot and killed an Afghan soldier from a distance of 2,430 metres.

The record was set during Operation Anaconda when a Canadian three-man sniper team from the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, (PPCLI), set the new record with a shot on a Taliban fighter.

For those of you wondering, that bullet would have dropped over 44 feet during it's flight, which would have had it in the air, approximately, four full seconds.

Took him two shots, but DAMN!!!
