    Pretty cool show.

    I watch the full 2 hours.

    Too bad they didn't have Bob Munden too.

    Would have been neat to show some of Tom Knapp's feats with a shotgun too.

    BTW, when they were doing the 1000 yard shot with the two army sniper marksmen, they mentioned the cartridge was 33 caliber but did not give any more info than that.

    Is it a 338 Win Mag?

    I always thought they used the NATO 7.62 (.308 Win)

    The guy shooting the pistol,"1911" with both trigger fingers was something to see wasn't it? Wow. I think if anyone was to ever get in a shootout with him you better not miss when you try to bushwack that guy. He was something else on the speed shooting and blindfolded and using the speed loads.

    tim i heard them say a 33cal bullet to and if it was a 338 it would have been the 338 lapua but the rifle was only a m-24 A2 its not until the A3 model that it gets cambered for anything above 30cal (300 win mag or 308).

    Thanks PFCSkoug and skeet man

    I just checked Wikipedia, and they say "Remington has also developed the M24A3 SWS, a long-range variant of the M24 firing the .338 Lapua Magnum round."

    Curious if that's what they were actually using.

    That's a loooooong shot, regardless of what they were using, and they got 7 out of 7 on the target.

    Impressive, as were all of the trick shots.

    Go over to youtube and type Navy seals deer hunting in the search. Vid shows 2 seal snipers take a deer out at 950 yards with a .338. It says the shot had 213 inches of vertical drop, I was impressed. JD

    Tom Knapp refered to the "sight picture" often, he uses his bead even when shooting with an inverted gun.
