Saving Private Ryan - 8 Round Stripper-Clip?
At the last battle at the town of Ramel, (something like that)watch the part where the sniper, private Jackson, is about to die. He fires eight .30-60 rounds at the Germans below, he takes out four Germans and misses two and possibly misses two more. All in total he fires 8 rounds without reloading a fresh stripper-clip. The Springfield M1903 sniper rifle uses a 5-round stripper-clip. The bolt action sniper rifle magically reloaded itself?!?!?!

jackson actually reloads his gun when you cant see. when he misses the first guy for the first time, he mumbles "come on," you cant see his hands or rifle but from the sounds of the gun he is definately reloading. and he doesnt use a stripper clip either. you cant use those on the springfield due to the scopes position. he simply loads and few rounds manually.

Ill have to check this out, got me curios. FOr the record though you dont have to use strippers to load top bolts. I load all mine indivudualy, stripper clips are a PITA to use. Im not even sure if you could use one with a scope mounted.

The guy who wrote the slip-up is right, the Springfield only had 5 shots, and then had to reload. HANG ON A SEC! What if he reloaded when you couldnĀ“t see?
