Excellent Documentary on Military Sniper
6 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came here to find out what kind of rifle would be good for long range hunting. The program featured from light to ultra heavy rifles used for long range sniping. It's a mistake to think that if you use the same caliber weapon, you can do the same thing that people featured in this movie can do. These people are heavily selected out of all the recruits that comes through the door of Army and Marine training camps. They may be one in 10000 out of all the men that can fire a rifle.

But at 300 yards, an average hunter can do what these men can do at 1000 yards, so the information presented here is still useful to an average hunter. Beyond that the accuracy starts to depend on the ammo's quality as well as that of the rifle.

One short coming of the program was that it didn't complete the story of Sgt. Ed Eaton, and how he survived the battle. I've done some research on this, and he's been picked up by another helicopter that the first helicopter notified of the soldiers still left on the ground. Cavelry arrived in time to save the lives of him and his commanding officer. He now lives in a small town in the north western region of the country.

This is so far one of the best organized tales of the gunmen out of many similar programs.

The program presented a fair view of elements that makes the world of snipers, and is recommended for viewing.
