just an ordinary / run of the mill rifle that could be used reliably for sniping.
What would be your recommendation for a "sniper rifle" ? Not a 50 cal. to hit a target 2 miles away ... just an ordinary / run of the mill rifle that could be used reliably for sniping. Also, what scope / other furniture would you suggest ?
In all fairness FarmDad, he did say "Not a 50 cal. to hit a target 2 miles away ...". Just sayin'.If you had the skillset and ability to hit a target 2 miles away you wouldn't need to ask such a silly question .
Two miles is not " rifle " distance it is get on the radio and call for fire distance . Or simply go the other way and leave them well enough alone .
I always wonder about this too. And for some other reasons besides what you listed.First of all, if the SHTF I would rather not be shooting at folks at great distances. It seems that it would be best to avoid that scenario.
