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.
