Canadian Forces Sniper Video
Longest Sniper Kill Ever
"Long Range Shooting" how to use your scope
If the Taliban ever train for counter-sniping, the story will be different. The Canadian shooter would need to work the rifle bolt dead slow, for one thing. If the opposing guy has comparable equipment, that dramatic slamming of the bolt open and closed in the video would be inviting death.
Don't knew about the taliban's counter sniping but they are bit into sniping with the long ranged .303s and mosin nagnant and dragunevs.
Here is how Talibans are using their snipers
Here is how the US sniper eliminates Taliban spotters

Psychological testing consists in completing a questionnaire which lets the psychologist divide all snipers tested into four groups. Only two groups permit snipers to keep on training and have access to sniper weapons.
After that, the psychologist watches each sniper individually and, if necessary, holds special training with the sniper to improve performance (for example his determination). If correction is impossible, the sniper gets discharged from the service.
The snipers should be able to make prompt decisions and establish priorities, be determined, brave, and self-possessed.
Snipers should be able to make a camouflage suit by material at hand by themselves. Of course, they could buy one in a specialized store but, according to the officers, they all need additional work and moreover, they are not that cheap. Each suit costs approximately 200$ which is rather expensive for a contract sergeant.
Snipers practicing their skills in camouflaging their firing positions.
Really bad weather conditions (melting snow and rain) made the task even more difficult.
The sniper lies down on the all-weather raincoat and his companion covers him with twigs and snow. In this position, the sniper may spend from several hours to several days. They say that it is not that cold in winter and if you light a candle in there, it gets even warmer.
This fake sniper is equipped with a micro mirror which can emit specks of light to attract the attention of the enemy sniper who, by opening fire, may betray his location.
Old armed military hardware is a great place for a sniperâ€™s firing position. Often, they use stubs, both real and artificial.
