Range Report: The Iraqi Tabuk Sniper Rifle

Anybody who served in the Iraq War during the height of the insurgency (2005-2007) or are familiar with modern military sniper history know the story of the Iraqi Sniper Juba and his Tabuk Sniper Rifle.

I have to be honest, I was jaw-dropped impressed with the performace of both the shooter and this rifle with Ball ammo and a malfunctioning scope to 500 yards!

What has always amazed me about Hayha was the MASSIVE amount of kills he was able to rack up (505 confirmed) in such a short period of time (98 days) with a Mosin Nagant with IRON SIGHTS!

For those of you that have shot a Mosin at any distance over a hundred yards, you know what I am talking about!

History has proven time and time again, especially in the Civil War and WW2 that to produce deadly snipers nothing can replace the self-sufficient and practical hunting/gun culture in which they were raised. Their prowess with a rifle was directly related to their survival. Nothing could be a better teacher than that!

Who gives two shits about the number of kills? 500 or 200, it’s BEYOND AMAZING the guy did it with IRON SIGHTS in Below Zero temps!

This is one of the most amazing stories of partisan resilience on historical record. Let’s all learn something from it.
