    good edit, cause i'm sure the "sniper rifle" he was using sure as hell wasn't .223 at 500+ yds. What i'm wondering is if it was the m40a1 weapons system, or and accurized m14. He'd have to be pretty quick on the bolt to get 5 shots in 8 seconds with 5 kills. Or it's just:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    He is truely not a "sniper" but a marksman. Probably a M16 with an ACOG.

    Could be an M21/M25. See alot of those over there in the hands of Marines. Could even be an SR-25.

    The main reason why I edited the title,I couldnt give credit to the round,i had to give it to the shooter.

    Might be true of the taliban though, Somebody I work with served in Afghanistan, said they were horrible shots.
