How to shoot like a Marine sniper (VIDEO)

A scout sniper with III Marine Expeditionary Force in Okinawa explains his M40A5 rifle and walks you through shooting position and a few tips for those long range shots.

Sure, the rifle weighs in at 18.94 pounds and is 53.37 inches long but its a pretty sweet 7.62x51mm NATO bolt-gun that comes complete with a SureFire 7.62SS muzzle brake/suppressor and a 3-12x M8541 Scout Sniper Day Scope that can be used to zap badguys like a thunderbolt from Zeus out to 1,000 yards.

Sgt. Alex M. Kesler, is a South Jordan, Utah, native and is with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division.
