    Saw that one about two years ago, I think if you look closely you can see that it's a gopher or marmot...good shot though from that distance.

      I think the last shot was a person. You could see them shuffle and move left then it was all over. I also saw an arm on one shot.
      Got this last year from my son in law who is in the Air Force. Said he got it from some guys that shot footage over there.

        At about 45-50 sec. into the video you can see the marmot crawl onto to the rock with his head facing the left side of the screen.
        I have the same video out in the shop on a cd, it's been there for at least a year...had it on my hard drive for quite some time before I burned it onto the cd.
        Not sure who gave it to your son but I doubt that it is authentic.

          It's real footage and it's not a 50 cal, it's a 20mm explosive round. One hit anywhere and it's lights out.

            It is defiantly not a 50 we can't use hollow point ammo on humans, so H E ammo is out also.

            Get Evan to find that Urban legend site and Close this false BS.

            I am surprised it is still floating around after 3 years. It is BS.

            But if something simular is happening to the ragheads , Good for the US Snipers.

              I love this BBS. I keep saying you can learn something new every day. I would never have known this was fake.
              Oh well ...but it is still cool!

              Ok, we can all stop hyperventilating now.

              I would like to ask why do you guys think it is not a 50 and is an HE round...please be gentle I am just asking.
              If this was shot in the desert wouldn't a 50 hitting dry flaky crusty rocks make the same result. Also wouldn't a 50 make that kind of noise when it hits rock?

              Again I am just trying to be educated here so be gentle.

                The images aren't faked, they're just not as they're being described. They're from a video from there guys: http://rmvh.com/index.htm If you google on "sniper video rmvh.com" you'll find sites that takes the scenes apart.

                That being said there's some good shooting in there.

                        We can use hollow point ammo and do:

                        The purpose of the 7.62mm "open-tip" MatchKing bullet is to provide maximum accuracy at very long range. Like most 5.56mm and 7.62mm military ball bullets, it may fragment upon striking its target, although the probability of its fragmentation is not as great as some military ball bullets currently in use by some nations. Bullet fragmentation is not a design characteristic, however, nor a purpose for use of the MatchKing by United State Army snipers. Wounds caused by MatchKing ammunition are similar to those caused by a fully jacketed military ball bullet, which is legal under the law of war, when compared at the same ranges and under the same conditions. The military necessity for its use-- its ability to offer maximum accuracy at very long ranges--is complemented by the high degree of discriminate fire it offers in the hands of a trained sniper. It not only meets, but exceeds, the law of war obligations of the United States for use in combat.
                        This opinion has been coordinated with the Department of State, Army General Counsel, and the Offices of the Judge Advocates General of the Navy and Air Force, who concur with its contents and conclusions.

                        An opinion that reaches the same conclusion has been issued simultaneously for the Navy and Marine Corps by The Judge Advocate General of the Navy.

                          Geee, And all this time I thought it was against the Geneva convention to use anything other than Ball ammo as an anti personnel round.
