"In a BBC interview, Harrison reported it took about nine shots for him and his spotter to range the target."

He also described how during the ranging, the bullets were landing far enough away from the target that their impact probably wasn't audible over the firefight the target was sniping at (and without hearing protection, you're not going to hear much after firing a few shots anyway)
