Don't they have anyone familiar with the ballistics of bullets working on a show about a sniper?
The through the scope shots are so incorrect it's super eye roll bad. Bob Lee is shooting at a target 1550 yards away, misses by several feet, makes no apparently adjustments to the scope shoots again, with the crosshair in the exact same place and gets a different but closer result, finally takes one more shot with the crosshairs in the exact same spot as the last two shots still not having made any adjustments and finally hits the target. If he's not adjusting the scope between shot dialing in corrections he needs to be moving the crosshairs to compensate for it not being dialed in. Nevermind he was told it's dialed in when it was handed to him.
Of course that eye-roller pales compared to him shooting a running target at distance, not leading the guy any and hitting him. Unless he happened to know he'd be shooting someone at that distance and they'd be running a certain speed the scope wouldn't be dialed in (ignoring wind & weather) to line up with the crosshair on top. It's almost as bad as the Elementary episode a few weeks ago where someone shoots (from the ground) a base jumper in free fall without leading the person and hitting them.
Then we have the bullets that are so special only 4 guns in the world are strong enough to shoot them (in this episode), but Bob Lee fired one out his standard ol' "sniper rifle" after recovering it from the police cruiser a few episodes ago without any issue.
Finally, the improved "perfect" polymer coated bullet Mr. Fichtner makes breaks apart and disappears leaving no trace? Wait, what?!?!? It goes through the target undamaged and then breaks apart? Or, it breaks apart leaving no trace in the person? How's that work again?
