Today’s Photo is one of the strangest shooting positions I’ve ever seen, and it involves what most likely is the spotter and a lot of various bags used to support the sniper and his Accuracy International sniper rifle.
Does anyone have a name for this shooting position?
Some of my friends suggested it was the broken back shooting position, but that’s something else in my book. This possibly involves two broken bags…
The scope is a Schmidt & Bender (5-25 PMII?) in a mount by Spuhr of Sweden, with a bunch of extra Picatinny rail. There’s a Glock 17 pistol in the holster.
The rifle is an Accuracy International AXMC, you can compare it to the picture below.
The AXMC can be configured in .338 Lap Mag, .300 Win Mag or .308 Win.
