I guess at that distance it's not that loud.
Ok I see what your saying, so this is how the sound goes in the video. First you hear the pop from the rifle from the shooters point of view, then after that all sound is from the target cam, as the bullet comes in to the target you hear the sound from the bullet or impact, then a couple seconds later you hear the rifle pop from the targets point of view. The bullet is traveling more than 2x the speed of sound for a good while and then it slows down to subsonic speeds by the time it hits 2400 yards, at that point the sound of the rifle pop is traveling faster than the bullet, but it is WAY behind the bullet and takes an additional 2-3 seconds to get to the target. And you are correct, by the time the rifle pop gets to the target it is not very loud.
