Canadian special forces sniper kills an ISIS fighter from TWO MILES away

Post  wyatt1 on Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:18 pm

Canadian sniper has beat the record for the longest confirmed kill in military history by picking off an ISIS fighter from a staggering 11,319 feet.
The bullet was fired from a McMillan TAC-50 rifle set on a high-rise tower and took 10 seconds to travel the 2.14 miles towards the fighter, who was attacking Iraqi soldiers.
This smashed the last record set by a Briton Craig Harrison, who killed a Taliban soldier with a 338 Lapua Magnum rifle at a range of 8,120 feet(1.54 miles) in 2009.

I'm glad he took out a terrorist from that distance but how long before the terrorists get hands on such a weapon ???

It's not really the weapon Blackie,  it takes a lot of practice and you have to 'zero in' the rifle to your own eyes,  it is very personal, especially at long ranges.  You can not pick up someone else's rifle and be sure of getting  on target.
Any powerful rifle could kill at that range but the shooter would have to be very good to hit the target.

The bullet took 10 seconds to get to the target it says,  now the  victim would not hear the sound of the shot as the round is travelling at supersonic speed, but he would have to stay in the same position for 10 seconds to be hit , you can do a lot of moving around in 10 seconds.  So there is quite a bit of luck involved. (Good or Bad depending on which end of the rifle you are on)

I watched a B/W film last night, the driver was being chased from behind and got shot in the kneecap, now that was some shot.
