148. From the Dicovery Channel website:
"In the show, Yardley looked through the scope of a high-powered rifle from four different possible angles focused on a duplicate Presidential limousine. The limo was in the exact spot where Kennedy was fired on and filled with actors the same size as the passengers that day.

From vantage points at the south end of the overpass, the north end of the overpass and on the grassy knoll, Yardley determined whether a shot could have come from a second gunman at any of these spots.

After careful analysis of possible shot locations, the forensics team structured on a California firing range the exact distances, angles, and even wind speed in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. High-speed cameras rolled as Yardley took his best shot at the head replicas, using a Mannlicher Carcano rifle - the same type supposedly used by Lee Harvey Oswald.

The results of these precision ballistics tests provide some clear answers to the events in Dealey Plaza. Comparing the splatter patterns from these test angles, with the historical evidence gleaned from eyewitness testimony and Secret Service reports, as well as an exact digitized overlay of the Zapruder film, the forensic team draws the definitive conclusion that the fatal shot could have only come from the sixth floor window of the Book Depository and not anywhere else, just as the Warren Commission determined in 1964."
