Use to seeing this with bolt action rifle's instead of the Barrett's. Have to be an Amry patch, because the Corp does not include the Barrett as a sniper rifle.

this is solid evidence the luckybychoice is right on the money in his Winchester mod 70 comment.

Hathcock generally used the standard sniper rifle: The Winchester Model 70 .30-06 caliber rifle with the standard Unertl scope. On some occasions, however, he used a different weapon: the .50-caliber M2 Browning Machine Gun, on which he mounted the Unertl scope, using a bracket of his own design.[8] This weapon was accurate to 2500 yards when fired one round at a time. At one point, he took careful aim at a courier carrying a load of assault rifles and ammunition on a bicycle. He had second thoughts when he saw a 12-year-old boy in his sights, but after considering the intended use of those weapons, he decided to disable the bicycle, hitting the bike frame. The boy tumbled over the handlebars, grabbed a gun, and immediately began firing back, so Hathcock returned fire, killing him

But all of our snipers. But Carlos was a fantastic shot and person as well. I think I've read every book on him.

Did you get to meet him or just watch him shoot? Either way it would have been a great thing to see/do. I read a article about his son and I guess he's a kick ass marksman as well.
