Bonus points and double perks for the multi-kill.

Has he been brought up on-charges yet? That must be against the ROE.

Actually, a .338 Lapua might just do 8 Jihadis if you lined them up nut-to-butt and shot 'em front-to-back......

Sounds like a good Mythbusters challenge.........

I'm amazed at how much .338 Lapua costs.  I was at a gun store in Austin a couple of weeks ago and one box of 20 cost $130.

But to truly reach out and touch someone, .338 or .50 is the only real choice.

Your RoE, yes. Ours, no. We've had too much crap in the shit holes to piss about with the idea of fair play.

Nice shot.
