This setup is about as close as it gets to the one rifle that will do it all. It won’t be the best at any one task, but it will do a lot of things very well.
With the right setup you can accurately engage targets at close to medium range, then you can dial up the power up on your LPVO and confidently engage targets out to 400 yards. Realistically though, most engagements will be inside 200 yards.
“The original whatever you want to call them- Recces, SPRs, MK 12s (we usually just say “sniper M4") had a 16" barrel, Leupold 2.5-10 and a PRI foregrip. They were first used operationally in ’93 in Somalia by our guys that were attached to our Southern brethren“. – Kyle Defoor
