[Video] How to Setup and Sight in a High Recoil Sniper Rifle
“You aren’t shooting a gun. You’re calibrating a machine.”
My buddy Hank Strange got his hands on a very cool piece of kit recently, the new Desert Tech HTI chambered in .50 BMG. However, if you’ve never shot long range (talking 500m+ here guys), it can be daunting to get started, especially with a weapon chambered in .50 BMG. When you’re not 100% sure how to do something, the best course of action is usually to call in the experts.
Long distance shooting is one of the hardest skill sets a shooter can attempt to master. Many of us don’t even have access to ranges that allow for really, really long shots which means practice time is at a premium when you can get on one of those ranges.
In this video, Hank gets some instruction on rifle setup and sighting in from Marine Scout Sniper and Top Shot contestant Peter Palma along with Nate Murr.
This video has some great tips if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed with getting started in long range shooting.
Here is the video description,
Desert Tech sent this DTA (Desert Tactical Arms) HTI (Hard Target Interdiction) Bullpup Bolt Action Sniper Rifle to the Hank Strange Situation for Testing and Evaluation. Instead of just doing the usual fun shooting a 50 BMG video we decided to explore what it really takes to set up and run a high end Rifle like the HTI.
It’s been said before: Hank is a novice, so we turned to our friend Marine Scout Sniper, Top Shot contestant Peter Palma and his Brother in Arms Nate Murr. enjoy Part One and stay tuned for more.
