Carlos actually used 2 rifles. 1st was the M70 in 30-06. 2nd was a M700 Rem. in .308(7.62mm). Very intresting fellow.

Hathcock will be fondly remembered for his abilities and service.

Not the same that can be said for Lon Horiuchi!!

I wish someone would write a book on Chuck Mawhinney. No other Marine in Vietnam had more confirmed kills of VC & NVA than Chuck Mawhinney.

They called him "White Feather" with 93 Confirmed Kills. I've read his biography (I AM a history teacher!) and it was fascinating. Remember the movie sniper? Also Saving Private Ryan? In both of those films there was a scene where a heroic American sniper kills an enemy sniper by shooting right thru the BG's scope. Well Hathcock actually DID that in 'Nam.
