    Hello! I'm new here, but I've recently taken an interest in firearms as it is helpful knowledge for the kind of stories I like to write.

    Anybody here familiar with the Unique Alpine TPG-1?

    1. What would a wound from a long range shot (around 800m, from a higher angle) look like with this weapon? If it's helpful, let's assume that the calibre is 308win.

    2. (Unrelated to the Alpine) Can experts actually tell what the exact rifle is just by knowing the type of bullet?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    well i think a 800m shot with a .308 takes alot of skill, and probably a good with a rifle. the .308 isnt a long range shot, it can be done but it takes some skill

    i would get the rifle in .338 lupa, that is a long range caliber and would do 800m pretty easy
