  • Finnish Sniper

    HEy all.

    Here is a lonely finnish sniper, well, thats a surprise, who is looking to hook up with sniper community. I'd love to find some one(s) to change ideas and tips and hopefully find a suitable sniper event wher I could take part in. No matter where it is, with my enormous governament salery I can go anywhere! Anyway, if you guys (or galr) can help me, i'd be quite a happy shooter! ANd btw. any one heard of the 'Lapua Sniper' competition or THE 'Simo Häyhä' sniper competition? Without any camparisson thay seen quite tough..

    Well, get in touch.

        I'm familiar with the Simo Hayha comp. From everything I've read it seems like a tough event.

        It's knowing that when I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, the Devil says, "Shit! He's awake!"

        Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

          I just got back from the Finn Sniper 2008 competition in Lohtaja Finnland. It used to be called the Lapua Sniper comp. I also went last year, and loved it. You guys have a great country. I have been looking into the Simo Hayha Comp for next year.

            Yes, there are 2 bigger comps here in Finland.

            Our homepage is -Hayha comp is at

            Must say- for a first timer, N15 did well in our comp! congrats!
            Will write full competition report with pics when i get time. Summer vacation is close...

            Igor, in your description your weapon system is 1:1 to Finnish army new KIV2000 sniper system. Not too common combo outside army since Zeiss made only one limited lot.
            Also "JVA0360" cartridge you mention is particulary army ammunition- very hard to find or get, and not legally available any way for civils or even army active duty staff outside army areas.

            Apologies if im wrong, but my BS alert went on...
            Would you mind telling me whats absolute maximum elevation in meters with that scope range knob?
            Its not in manuals or web...
