At the 250 yard marker on the range:
]1. place 10 golf balls on tees and space them about 6 inches apart.]a. This range trial is of course going to require a scope.
2. Hit 8 out of 10 balls off the tee.[/indent][/indent]a. If successful,you qualify to be considered for sniper school.b. This is a real test of ability, equipment, ballistics, trajectory, bullet placement and all those other "terms" all wrapped up into one simple task.
I used a .308 for the task because that is what the Army issued me at the time.
Given my personal choice now, I grab my .300 Win Mag.
The Point is, use what you have and what you have trained with.
The only thing that matters here is removing the ball from the tee.
It Does not matter if the ball zings off the range or simply falls off the tee.
If the ball is removed from the tee, it's a score.
