One of the top visiting points were the lanes with .308, .338 and .50 cal sniper rifles. The rifles were equipped with Nightforce Optics sights in different versions and shooting targets on 300 to 800 meters was basically a walk in the park. Shooting the tiny metal targets at 300, 450 and even 600 meters away with Haenel RS8 and RS9 didn't require much of skill. Rifles are really well made and user friendly.
