    yeah, Im still waiting for an American sniper to reclaim the longest-confirmed-kill sniper shot. Right now a Canadian has the title. He sniped a guy at like 2200m in Afghanistan. Thats a hell of a shot.

    I heard a Canadian had the record for the farthest confirmed sniper kill, that's pretty cool! 1.509 miles (2430 meters) is a pretty damn long shot...:bow: :bow: :eek1:

    I love terminal ballististics and capability video's.

    If you can buy one you should.

    Mr. Barrett is a vigilant defender of citizins 2nd amendment rights.

    And he makes an awesome .50!

    Yeah but Col Carlos Hathcock made that 2500yd shot with a 50 cal M2 machine gun set up to fire single shots with a scope mounted on it.
    Not a .50 cal sniper rifle.
    GySgt. Calos Hathcock was credited with
    93 confirmed kills while serving in Vietnam
    Un-Officially, his body count exceeds 300.
    He even took out a NVA general at 800 yds with a Winchester .308

    yeah, 146' of drop, thats some crazy stuff. I haven't had any luck with google, but I remember an article in the paper about a guy from my home town of Vancouver, WA who had a custom built .50 BMG rifle and he won some kind of national 1000 yard shooting comp in the mid 90s. He had a 5 shot group that was like 2.7" or something.. it was something crazy like that...
