Photo Of The Day: Above we have U.S. Army Staff Sgt Nathan McGowan and Staff Sgt Benjamin Holley, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment, 39th Brigade, Arkansas National Guard. They are using their Remington M2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle and M110 Sniper Rifle to fire at their assigned targets during the “Know Your Limits” event on Maertens Range, Fort Benning Ga. earlier in April 2022.

Below you see U.S. Army Staff Sgt Benjamin Holley, an Army Sniper assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment, 39th Brigade, Arkansas National Guard. He’s using the M110 Sniper Rifle at his assigned targets during the “Mystery Box” event.

These snipers are the best from their home Units and have come to prove they are the best.

It’s interesting to see the use of cantilever mounts (which are more unstable) when there’s plenty of Picatinny rail for a normal mount.

A good spotter is the key to success.

      @gopurdue02 You don't need either when shooting these guns.

    So the Army is still using Remington action-based rifles. well, OK, gotta use 'em up.
    BUT I want to see now is training with the new BARRETT MRAD sniper rifles. Those are the best rifles in the inventory, better than the earlier Remington Defense/CADEX designed "heavy" (.338 Lapua) rifle.
    Also I hope we will soon see the ARMY and Marines using Bluetooth enabled scopes like the SIG/SAUER BDX Sierra 6 scopes where the Kestrel 5700 Elite can Bluetooth all the info to the scope, lighting up both a hold-over and a station wind call. Precision AND speed of targeting is a good thing. Less time spent on station means less chance of being spotted.
