I repeat that the Remington rifle is not the best choice for hunting or sniping or battle for that matter for the reasons that I gave.
A dangerous game hunter chooses a control round feed rifle for functional reliability.
The forces had no choice as to what rifle they had to use.
Yes they did and the Mod 70 failed in field trials. Not to mention they didn't bring back the claw extractor until a few years ago. Whats more dangerous than a human?
