One of my all time fav stories
Heck he killed 500 men with a bolt action mosin no scope or anything . Well then 200+ more with a sub gun.. Any man who the Russian called the white death is a bit of a bad bad man..

Would have and did have many more than the 93 confirmed.
The method of tallying kills was more stringent in Hathcock's day and time.
Snipers really interest me.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

I believe this is the sniper who was interviewed after the war. He was asked "Was it hard to kill a human being?" He replied "Oh yes they run in zig zag and hide behind things."
Great read. Those Mosin's are so much fun to shoot. They are cheap and easy to find. I was shooting my friends Mosin Carbine this past Sunday and my shoulder still hurts. With the iron sights I was pretty darn accurate. The guys near me with AR's and Eotech scopes were not as accurate, and the range masters saw this. I said it does not take money to be accurate.
Expert in learning :)
I remember having read that before....thanks for the again.
of the many 91-30's I've had 2 were worth some extra work
one was 2 moa and after cleaning it up, some trigger work and
nesting the barrel, with hand loads I have it at sub 1 moa ( !).
the other was 4moa and now is a shade over 2.
what he did is synergistic.
and during winter in Finland -- wow x 2

So many die each day and we lose their stories forever.
Only the dead have seen the end of war.
Yup, I've heard of him. The sniper with the highest number of kills did it without using a scope.

Don't let the high post count fool you...I'm just part of the welcoming committee.
Finnish Mosins Nagant are much more accurate than the Russian, I thought the rounds were the same. By the way the Russian Nagants aren't half bad either.
Did you read at the bottom of the story he was in the hospital with his face half shot off! I am guessing it was more than a flesh wound.
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
