I'm not really sure how anyone can take that as definitive proof that Oswald didn't kill JFK, however.
I did a quick search and it appears what Hathcock was talking about was getting two shots off in the ~5.7 seconds that Kennedy was hit twice with the Carcano rifle Oswald used.
Personally I think he’s underestimating himself. I could pull that off with a bolt-action rifle, I’m sure the winner of several 1000-yard sniper competitions could also.
