Nicholas Irving, author, and former soldier rates 11 sniper scenes for realism in movies. Known as "The Reaper," Irving says he killed 33 enemies as a sniper for the US 3rd Ranger Battalion. He is the co-author of "Reaper: Drone Strike: A Sniper Novel."
Irving rates the realism of classic war movies such as "Clear and Present Danger" (1994), "Enemy at the Gates" (2001), and "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). He breaks down long-range-sniping scenes featuring Will Smith in "Gemini Man" (2019) and Mark Wahlberg in "Shooter" (2007).
He also looks at modern-day war movies set in Iraq and Afghanistan, such as "American Sniper" (2014), "Jarhead" (2005), "Lone Survivor" (2013), and "The Hurt Locker" (2009). Irving rates the realism of the weapons used, along with body position, stealth, and environment.

    I have a 1953 Mauser 24/47. It's identical to the K98, but K98s are hard to find in good shape, and expensive. It is a nice bolt action rifle, and quite accurate. Picking off a 12oz soda can at 125 yards with iron sights wasn't difficult. I converted the iron sights to a picatinny rail and a 5x20 scope at first (those cans became even easier targets), and then to a 12x20 (haven't fired it with that one yet). Downside to the conversion is that it is a fairly light rifle, around 6 lbs, and that 7.92x57 has a bit of a kick. If you don't loctite and tighten everything to hell and back, your scope will start to flap around and completely misalign (missing target by 5 feet at 125 yards) after about 11 or 15 shots .

    I totally agree. Hollywood has a tendency to blow things way out of proportion. Enemy at the gates and Saving private Ryan are still some of the best along with the hurt locker and there are many others with great story lines but as for realism, that’s what I think.
