When the bullet slows down and enters transonic flight at 2400 yards out it starts to wobble, which is why that one round hit sideways.
It would still make a very nasty wound.

I think the first shot hit the ground first, that's why it reached the target sideways...

#1 Wouldn't the bullet start to wobble also because it looses its axial rotation speed?

#4 Yes "When the velocity of a rifle bullet fired at supersonic muzzle velocity approaches the speed of sound it enters the transonic region. In the transonic region, an important thing that happens to most bullets, is that the centre of pressure (CP) shifts forward as the bullet decelerates. That CP shift affects the (dynamic) stability of the bullet. If the bullet is not well stabilized (a perfect spiral football throw), it can not remain pointing forward through the transonic region (the bullets starts to exhibit an unwanted coneing motion(wobbly football throw) that, if not dampened out, can eventually end in uncontrollable tumbling along the length axis). However, even if the bullet has sufficient stability (static and dynamic) to be able to fly through the transonic region and remain pointing forward, it is still affected. The erratic and sudden CP shift and (temporary) decrease of dynamic stability can cause significant dispersion (and hence significant accuracy decay), even if the bullet’s flight becomes well behaved again when it enters the subsonic region. This makes accurately predicting the ballistic behaviour of bullets in the transonic region very hard. Because of this, marksmen normally restrict themselves to engaging targets within the supersonic range of the bullet used."
Sorry for the cut/paste, but it is a better explanation than I could do.

#5. Lengthy but informative post. Nice. The most important thing at the end of the flight, in this situation, is that it remains a bullet or a chunk of metal and regardless of how it hits the target, presumably flesh and/or bone, it is still going to do some ugly damage. May not be a perfect shot in the desired region but if it connects even at a sub sonic speed the person on the other end will suffer. That is a big bullet and is going to leave a mark.

No it hit short, but still a bloody good first shot, transonic flight does not make bullet heads tumble normally if the rifle is set up correctly with the correct bullet weight to rifle twist, however over twist a bullet or over stabilize it as it is called and it will spin out of control and blows apart as soon as it touches any item or even cold air will tumble them as they hit the transonic zone (650-700 yards). The military used this in rifles as a way round the rules of war(no soft points), a 1 in 7 twist is not a normal rate for a 62grn bullet as any good shooter knows, and that why you see bullets enter the leg and come out the top of the shoulder some times.

What kind of sniper is that?
