Here's a more interesting list for those who wasted their time on the video:1. The Barrett M107A1 recoil system design has more in common with an artillery cannon than a sniper rifle. 2. The first confirmed sniper kill over a mile wasn't with a sniper rifle. It was with a scoped Browning M2 Machine Gun.3. One of the most common overlooked factors in long distance shooting is the increase in bullet velocity from the gun powder heating up after sitting in a hot chamber.4. In Vietnam, an average of 200,000 bullets were fired for every one enemy combatant killed. That averaged out to about $2,300 per kill. Snipers did it with an average of 1.3 shots or 27 cents. 5. Sniper rifles can range in price from $250 at Walmart to the $22,000 TrackingPoint Sniper system which includes a USB port, a WIFI server, an IPad mini, and fires itself. If Apple made a rifle for the typical Call of Duty troll, this would be it.
