Karma comes fast when you're an ISIS terrorist
An ironic beheading, and therefor hilarious beheading, of an ISIS leader: Apparently a hotshot British sniper used this new DAN .338 bolt action sniper rifle from IWI-- (hat tip to regular reader Bill for pointing out that IWI is an Israeli manufacturer, thus making this beheading that much more ironic) --at a range of 1000 meters, to behead an ISIS leader who was teaching 20 ISIS recruits how to behead somebody. Heh heh heh.
According to a spotter, the body stood for a second or two then fell, headless. Then all the recruits ran away at high speed screaming, effectively eliminating 21 terrorists with one bullet.
Apparently this kill was done using the Lapua Magnum .338 that tumbles toward the target and just obliterates it. It was the same round that Brit sniper Craig Harrison used to set the combat sniper distance record at 2,475 meters back in 2009.
Those Brits are bad asses.
