    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    That shot with a rifle costing less than $2K and by you add the cost of the scope, maybe $2,500.00! Doesn't get much better than that!

    OMG Harry Reid & BATF just outlawed it and no civilian shall own one!

    Curious. Did that first shot start tumbling and keyhole at the end? Looks like it but I doubt it would make it that far doing that. I guess odds are better it just tumbled on impact to the target.

    Good shooting.

    I hear you. After reading a comment elsewhere, and rewatching the vid, it appears that it bounced off the ground into the target. Heck, the close miss is impressive at that range. The odd strike on the steel just had me wondering.

    I thought there was a puff of dirt as well. Still impressive

    Amazing, pull the trigger; get a cup of coffee while waiting for the bullet to hit.

    Hard to tell... It may also have gone transsonic and tumbled the last hundred yards or so... Third shot was a clean hit, though. In combat, you'd never even know where it came from, at that range.
