Thank you QI! I love that show
Modern snipers tend to work on set-pieces or covert situation where the targets are often static. That is very different from the chaos of skirmish warfare that 40k is based on. Lots of smoke and targets moving at high speed and lots of other distractions like really big and scary monsters charging you - I don't think there is much comparison with real world war.It wouldn't, the velocity of the first bullet warps space time so it will actually hit the ground at a different time, just not enough to measure.
Why do snipers only have 36'' range? The modern Barret has an effective range of 2 km and these are suppose to be better than that so, other than balance, what gives?
