It should be noted, though, that he used iron sights (the regular stuff on the rifle), and not any scope.

R.I.P Simo Häyhä

Loved and remembered by all Finns. When I die someday, I would like to visit you. I know that sounds stupid, weird and dangerous.

Actualy, Häyhä had abit over 500 confermed kills. Because all of his kills could not be confermed, it has been estimated that about 200 kills has not been counted. So there is a bossibility to 700 kills or more.

not only that but the russians drop artillery on him, sent teams to hunt him down (including anti snipers) and when finally someone did shoot him (with an explosive bullet that took off half his jaw) all it did was put him in a coma for a few days causing him to wake up the day the winter war ended. all of this done with an old hunting rifle with iron sights, no scopes. (and a few done with a SMG)

Well normally I would say you don't see snipers like that any more but on the wiki list of snipers there's a UK marine with 90 confirmed kills in ONE DAY..... that's a hell of a lot of ammo to chew through when you think about it.

Well someone claimed that he killed around 2000 on Doomsday. He was a machine gun shooter. But well is that a record one wants to hold?

But how the hell did they confirm this? Send a note to the russian side and asked for confirmation? Collected ears? Not saying its false just wondering.
