    A good compromise in rifle weight and cartridge performance might be the .338Lapua. I've been thinking about one of those myself.

    Ahhh... easy shot. 120mm HEAT would fix him right up, him and his buddies.

    See, Euc was right bigger=better.

    I believe it was Clint Smith who said that when confronted with a determined attacker, his weapon of choice is one that has a lanyard for a trigger.

    I agree.

    I agree with your comment in general. However, in this case the media has exposed the sniper teams AO. Not good. Additionally, some pictures of him have been released. Not good. Bad guys with pics and names and cells in the U.S. Not good at all.

    It was an awesome shot.
