U.S. Army soldiers get to blast away with various sniper rifles including the Barrett M107 .50 caliber semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle, and the Remington XM2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle at the Arta training range in Djibouti, Africa.
The XM2010 is a modernized version of the classic M24. The updated version retains the Model 700 action, but is chambered in the more potent 300 Winchester Magnum rather than the 7.62 NATO round. The rifle features a fully adjustable chassis and a modular rail system. Mounted on the rifle is a Leupold optic and a quick detach suppressor. Additionally, the rifle was designed to stand up to the harshest conditions on the planet.
I think someone should tell the female soldier that she doesn’t need to stick her entire hand through the trigger guard. I think her drill sergeants need a talking to for letting her get through basic rifle marksmanship with that habit.
