im not saying its a lie but an 800yard or meter shot with a saw at night without a scope is very very unlikely, i have some experience with the saw in iraq and me being a marine im not sure what to think..

A certain amount of luck was probably involved. His spotter "steered" him over the target a couple of times during the burst, and three strikes out of 60~80 rounds down range isn't a very high percentage. I was a bit surprised at how much damage the little 5.56 did at that range, though.
