There are also a lot more "off the books" kills at even greater range according to him.

    All I know...I want one!
    +1, while a mile killshot is an accomplishment, that .50 cal will decimate any human being it hits. And, according to the video, the rounds he was using for it were an explosive round designed to penetrate the block wall they were behind.. From what I got, even if the round didn't necessarily hit its mark, the aftermath took care of it for him.. Remember, there were 3 insurgents behind that wall and from the look of it he tagged all 3 of them.

    Still, you gotta respect the skills of any trained sniper, marines or otherwise.
