SAS sniper ‘shot an ISIS jihadi dead from 1.5miles away’ | Daily Mail Online

An SAS sniper is said to have shot dead an ISIS jihadi from 1.5miles away using the world’s most powerful rifle. It took three whole seconds for the bullet to reach its target – the throat of an Islamic State terrorist in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

The British marksman was using a CheyTac M200 Intervention gun which is produced in South Carolina and retails at $13,800 (£10,500) and can vaporise a person’s organs from 2,500m.

As the terrorist was leaving a burned-out building two weeks ago, the SAS gunman is said to have pulled the trigger, registering one of the most difficult kills in the regiment’s history.
