Guns & Ammo recently recapped the eight longest sniper shots on record. Dominated by Yank, Brit and Canuck shooters, seven of the eight have taken place in the last ten years (most in Afghanistan) with one fired in Viet Nam. Not too surprising given the constant march of technology, improved equipment and training giving skilled shooters ever more ability to reach out and touch those special someones on the battlefield. As G&A puts it, “Teamwork, natural skill and even luck all factor into the longest kill shots in the military books. The variables when shooting at distances up to one and a half miles can be staggering. It takes more than technology and know-how to tackle crosswinds, elevation and even the Earth’s rotation.” Worth a click.
