Maybe it's an optical illusion but I would swear that there are two different sized cartridges in his bandolier.
It appears that the last 6-7 rounds are a bit shorter that the rest.
Maybe .308 vs 30-06 for the rest??
Could be wrong though, the definition on the iphone is not that great.

No way it would be functional due to this.
Im about 90% sure it's a Hollywood fake gun.
Why they would spend money to fabricate a fake when there are thousands of real rifles that would fit the bill is a mystery though??
What do I know, maybe it's cheaper to make a fake than to repair/replace a real one if it gets damaged...even a real cheap one...

I bet you it is an Airsoft gun, not even metal at all...

yeah, bandolier has two distinctly different rounds in it. He's carrying them for a friend or advertising trading goods. :P
Time to get up, you're not dead yet...

Ok so it not just me that thinks he has two different cartridges in the bandoleer.

It could be 300 Win Mag vs 30-06 or 30-06 vs .308

His scarf covers most of those long action cartridges. I can't tell if they're belted or not.

That can looks awful small to me too.

I think that scarf is very artfully arranged to obscure the rounds.
I can't find another picture of the bandoleer.
I will look more later.

I blew up the picture and there are no belts visible. I say 30.06 and 308 rounds.

I can agree with that.
I have some 300 Win Mag 30-06 and .308 in my desk at work.
I will cut a 2" strip of paper lay it on top of the rounds and take a picture.
That may give us a point of reference.

The producers obviously want to make his rifle look like some sooper doper secret skwirel tacticool snipr rifle. They only served to make it look stupid. It's so cumbersome, I don't see how anyone could shoot it properly.
