Sniper from Finland cycles the bolt to eject a spent casing during the stress shoot lane of the Europe Best Sniper Team Competition at Grafenwoehr training area, Germany, July 29, 2018

A sniper from Finland on the stress lane. Renowned for marksmanship (ever heard of Simo Haya?) the Finnish Army use the Sako-built TRG-42 as their TKIV 2000 rifle, as well as the more legacy Valmet TKIV 85/Mosin 91 conversion in 7.62x53R– not to be confused with the old standard Russian 7.62x54R, although it can use that in a pinch.
