British snipers are bad asses
Cool, a British sniper used a modified Accuracy International L115A3 like the one shown, to kill 6 Taliban terrorists with a single shot from just over half a mile away. In Helmand Province, the soldier tracked the small band of Taliban insurgents sneaking along a tree line and through his scope spotted weapons and a bomb vest. He fired a shot and hit the trigger mechanism for the bomb and blew them all up at once.....heh heh.
This same soldier killed an insurgent with his very first shot as a sniper in Afghanistan when he tagged him from 0.83 miles away.
Of all the places I'd NOT like to be, at the business end of a British sniper rifle would be at the top.
