Been looking for a figure to go next to a 1/24th post apoc car for some time and this would fit in a treat ....

Nice looking figure. I always found kneeling to be one of the toughest positions top get right when I was competitive shooting.

As to the rifle, it looks big. Maybe a .50cal or a .460cal. Not sure.

I think that's the Accuracy International L115A3 which fires the .338 (8.59mm) bullet, which makes it a unique choice for this figure. The L115A3 can reach out to 1,400m, more than the 7.62mm 1,000m sniper rifles often used today.

At 1/24 scale, Kelley's sniper rifle should make for an impressive visual piece.

I also really like how Nutsplanet doesn't skimp on gear. She has extra L115A3 magazines, a sidearm with reloads, water, and a buttpack, and yet doesn't carry too much gear to weigh her down.

That's a nice looking rifle, and in .338 Lapua Magnum definitely fireable from kneeling. A 50cal would knock her over.

For March, Nuts Planet has released a 75mm spotter named, "Rifleman Jess." This figure complements "Sniper Kelley."
