Default New longest sniper kill 2 miles out.

Yep they have it on several data recorders and video.. The longest kill shot on record to date.
Kind of morbid to over a kill but these shooters are very skilled at their job.

So now Canada which is the Nation this sniper is from holds of the record. There is a lot of detail to view in these articles.

Not to mention the trajectory would be something like 30-40 ft. above the line of sight.

That's along ways to!

And wouldn't hear the explosion as the round left the barrel at that distance...

This man did the same or just a little bit further on a range with a 3600 Yard (2 Mile) Shot With HCR .375 CheyTac rifle and special scope.

Last year I posted an article about Bill Carter hitting a target 2.07 miles away with a 375 Cheytac with Optics: Schmidt & Bender 5-25X56mm PM-2 scope.

Well someone else did it too and they have a video of it. Damn fine shooting.

On September 28th, 2014 a team from Hill Country Rifles joined with expert instructors from FTW Ranch to attempt a 3600 yard shot onto a 36 steel target. At more than 2 miles, it will take the bullet a full 7.2 seconds to reach the target.

Must have been the heat and wind that slowed the kill shot the Canadian made.
