About as much marksmanship as launching a cruise missile. Might help if they backed up their shit, instead of hiding behind 'classified' after making a spurious claim.

agreed.

side note, I went shooting yesterday and my brothers buddy brought a .338 Lupua and I got to shoot it.

Nothing better than firing a genuine sniper rifle.

Marksmanship and tech....likely some tech we haven't heard about just yet. Scope with integral ballistic computer, laser rangefinder, and autocompensating electronically projected reticle? New wind doping tech? Different projectiles?

2.2 miles is over 3800 yards/3500 meters. There's a vid on youtube claiming that with Hornady AMAX ammunition you'd need 85MOA elevation correction to compensate for drop at that distance. With tiny variations in wind speed/direction easily introducing 6-12 feet of variation in impact point at that distance, some luck pitched in the extra juju needed on top of the skill required to even possibly hit that target. If he used a standard scope known to be in use by Canuck snipers, if he used standard .50BMG ammo (and not some FSDS hypervelocity round or whatever), if, if, if...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzwY6jIwr2o

For all we know the Canuck used a laser shoulder arm. No drop, no drift, just a hole burned through a chest. Think they're going to admit to fielding that kind of weapon? They're going to fry as many targets as possible before the other side gets wise. Who knows?

Regardless, I'd buy that man a Labatt.

Well, for the record, and im not a gambling man, but id bet on not hitting 1 in 5 at 3500metres with the best conventional gear on the market, money no object. Ive shot 1000's of rounds on 1000yard ranges. Obviously not recently, but whats changed in 10 years?

Still waiting for some shootist to try and recreate a hit at that range. 800' drop lol.

Lastly, depending on the shooters height above sea level, were it sea level, that target would have been almost over the horizon.

One thing I think everybody is missing on this:
The sniper was firing from a 'high rise' position.
Maybe a mountain side, or a tall building.
That would explain the drop.
Beyond the basic gun used, everything else is speculative.
Still, I'm humbled at this skill.
Just like all of you should be.

Do the Canuks have scopes with electronic range, wind compensation I saw something about new tech that even takes earth's revolution into acc at different latitudes and elevation
Just wait for the green light and squeeze the trigger
But even to hold a cross hair on target at that range would be very difficult
So well done Canoodian sniper

It's not impossible. We used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They're not much bigger than two meters.
