What I fear with scenarios like you've suggested for a sniper like that is I'll be walking towards a town to establish a civil life with like minded folk loaded with my small arms only to realize half my torso is missing just before death.
ALSO Project, thnx for the heads up on the Bushy I think I'm going to move towards the AR and or M4 models. I have become interested in the Colt M4 but I've heard some bad news on the tolerances make it a somewhat picky gun.

In a sniper situation, having more than 1 sniper in position at once is a good idea. and that group of 10 everyone mentioned should be met with at least equal firepower and good defensive positions, to find out intent. If hostile f*** them up, if not mabey you could do some trading before sending them on their way, however, highten security for at least 3 days after the group leaves. Survival is about being better prepared, and if you do kill them, take their weapons and ammo, don't pass up a chance to better arm yourselves. If they wanna join you, give them a trial period if they have usefull skills, if they don't or they aren't accepeted send them off. Also bolt action is very reliable, much less likely to jam, and probably easier to fix. Regardless use what you can.

Thanks for all the replies - didn't realize this thread had generated all this interest.
Most common criticism seems to be availability of ammunition - and that's a very good point!
I'm just glad people bothered to respond at all.
