will start dodging, moving to cover, and you wont get 1 hit in 10 shots under such conditions, no matter who you are,or what rifle, scope and load you have. Killing HUNDREDS of grunts makes NO difference. "High value" targets are NOT out in the sticks, and in urban areas, the ranges are not long, at all. You normally have to hit some tyrant as he moves between vehicle and building,or while he's in vehicle, or in the building. None of that is at ALL likely to be efficiently done with a "long range' rifle, especially not a bolt action. Hathcock hit 350 guys, he thought, and it made NO differece in the outcome of the Nam war. If had hit Ho Chi Minh, General Giap, and a dozen others, that MIGHT have changed things. W/o DOUBT, hitting a score of the top Nazis would have changed the course of history, ESPECIALLY if it had been done EARLY on, in the 30's.

Maybe one hit is all you need, because four or five of the enemy soldiers will have to carry the one you hit to the medical station. Another day you can hit one more.

unless it was a VERY poor hit, he'll be

DEAD, and post shtf, they won't BOTHER with helping the wounded. Instead,what they will do is FINISH HIM OFF, and TAKE his gear. There wont be any room-time in the psyche for anything else.
