You know, if I spray a million bullets, I could also hit a person from 4 miles away. This is not a first shot kill.

555 feet of holdover for a 750 grain 50 cal BMG round muzzle velocity 2820 fps, 300 yard zero, over 7 seconds of flight time for the projectile...
The graph is a bit hard to read.....
Simply amazing, it's like artillery, not rifle fire at that range.

Great shot. Yes he killed another human being, so what? Some humans deserve to be killed, and ISIS members are on that list. The world isn't all puppies and rainbows, we need realists to balance out the delusions of the idealists.

I dont think he sprayed and prayed here. you only got 10 rounds in a MAGAZINE for a 50 cal. If they would use that new scope tech from Trackingpoint that plots the shot for you even with a cold fire its almost a guranteed hit.

Rifle used is McMillian Tac 50

en.wikipedia.org...

Is bolt action with 5 round magazine - hardly the weapon to "spray and pray" ......

Without the Second Amendment in the US the McMillan Tac-50 rifle these Canadians used would not have been there for them to make the shot.

This same rifle is used by the US Navy and is known as the MK 15 Mod 0 Sniper Rifle.


What are you Blabbering on about?


Countrys without 2nd amendments produce guns too.
The UK has a thriving arms industry.


Yes the UK does build guns for there military but nothing like the US made McMillan Tac-50 rifle for the job it does.
They don't have shooters as good as the US or Canada that were likely raised around weapons.

Again your Blabbering nonsense as the UK held the world record until the Canadian took it.

Accuracy International being one of the top sniper rifle manufacturers in the world belies your point somewhat and having a generally armed populace doesn't have any bearing on the proficiency of the military. That's down to the training.

my buddy is one of the best shots in the US he competes regularly in national competitons and finishes top 3 everytime.

He called BS on this.


Agreed.

I know the instructor who taught the previous record holder and he calls bull# on that one too. The target wouldn't even have been in his sight picture.

...as being the story about how a human being died

He wasnt a human being. It was a member of ISIS. A piece of sh*t.

Sh*t needs to be flushed away and the Canadian Sniper did a superb job.

Weird. My buddy is one of the best shot in the world and he competes regularly in global competitions and finishes top 2 every time. He said it was accurate and true.

Funny how on the internet, we all have buddies who are in the top 3 sniper competitions, huh?

Oh, pishaw.

The Brits have been producing world class shooters for many years. Where do you suppose the US military went to learn how to put together sniper schools?

By golly, you're right--Great Britain. SAS snipers, and I suppose their other special units, field snipers a match for any anywhere.

So just stop.

We have the Germans to thank for that.

Ten points for any of our US friends who actually know where the word sniper comes from and what region gave them the name without using google.

The term originated in India during when the British ruled there. But I can't remember any more details without googling it.

The German Schutzensnur is the only foreign award I have received. It's their marksmanship badge. Their qualification course isn't as forgiving as the US Army's.

The snipe is an elusive little bird that lives along rivers, and are, by all accounts, a difficult target to hit with a firearm. That's the origin of the title "sniper". You had to be an excellent shot to hit a snipe.
