A SAS sniper beheaded an ISIS executioner with a single shot while the militant was teaching jihadis how to decapitate prisoners, it has been reported. Some 20 Islamic fighters were taking part in the executioner’s outdoor lesson when he was killed by the elite British soldier – hiding 4,000ft away and using specially-designed ‘wounding’ bullets.
Some shot! A British SAS sniper took out an ISIS terrorist from an incredible one-and-a-half miles away with a weapon borrowed from US forces.
The shot was made with a CheyTac M200. These purpose-built rifles are manufactured in South Carolina, and are meant for long-range accuracy. The guns are built around somewhat obscure, but highly effective proprietary .375 or .408 ammunition.
