SAS sniper 'shot an ISIS jihadi dead from 1.5miles away' using the world's most powerful rifle

Via Billy

The CheyTac M200 Intervention rifle is the sniper of choice used by the US Navy Seals, GROM operatives in Poland, Turkey's Maroon Berets and the Italian army.  Costing $13,800 (£10,500), it is at the forefront of warfare weaponry.  The British SAS are said to be trialing it in the field. It has been described as the most powerful rifle in the world with a range of 3,000m and can hit a person at 2,500m with enough power to vaporise their organs. A built-in a computer makes calculations to tell the shooter where to aim having factored in humidity, heat and wind. As a result it consistently achieves groups of 7 to 9 inches (18 to 23 cm) at 1,000 yards (914 m), 10 inches (25 cm) at 1500 yards (1372 m) and 15 inches (38 cm) at 2,000 yards (1,829 m).


An SAS sniper is said to have shot dead an ISIS jihadi from 1.5miles away using the world's most powerful rifle. 

It took three whole seconds for the bullet to reach its target - the throat of an Islamic State terrorist in the Iraqi city of Mosul.  

The British marksman was using a CheyTac M200 Intervention gun which is produced in South Carolina and retails at $13,800 (£10,500) and can vaporise a person's organs from 2,500m.

  2. That'd be useful to have if fearing societal collapse.

    "Farm off limits"

    Supposedly laser guns are being developed now also - might be cheaper for ammo (no ammo), overall cost.
