sacredhate - in that video up there, tehy make the gun sounds awesome..but it ends with "it's not even our top choice of sniper rifle, not even close".

ARRGGHHHH...where's the video for the top pick?????
Canadians' have a huge hard-on for McMillan .338's don't they?

Nope, not at all.

The Cdn forces .338 is the Canadian made PGW Timberwolf.

the McMillan, and the gun used for this shot, was the Tac-50 setup in a Cadex Dual Strike chassis.

Cdn snipers mostly use S&B PMII (5-25) scopes but JTF2 obviously has more flexibility with equipment.. I've seen pics of them with Nightforce optics.

I regularly shoot out to a mile +.. this was a hell of a shot.

rushinbear - 10 seconds doesn't seem like too long of a time.

Do you have any idea how much the Earth moves in ten seconds?


That has no impact on this problem as the earth was moving when the trigger was pulled.

You would be wrong.

Google sniper and Coriolis effect.

I guess I cant disagree but most of my physics problems don't deal with large distances. But after reading I get the best understanding when throwing a ball straight up when in a car or when on merry-go-round.

Correct.  On shorter shots it is not an issue.

Had a buddy who was a sniper and his longest confirmed was like 1420 or something like that and that utterly blew my mind. This is like some video game shit actually not even that because motherfuckers wouldn't even render at that distance in college duty LOL

Amazing really.

Obviously it's no coincidance Canada has 3 of the top 4 longest distance sniper kills.  Why?

More focussed sniper strategy/mission over there? Program encourages/trains for longer engagements compared w/other allies? Equipment?

I'd like to know.  Like I said, surely can't be just a coincidence it's Canada's snipers regularly smashing these records?

Anyway, amazing work by that guy.


We're just better shots. It's the ice in our veins. Benefits of living in the frozen north, homie.

Just read briefly about the optic you mentioned. Holy shitballs even at x25 times magnification what does a man sized target look like at that distance?

Can't even fathom a shot from that far away.

I think I mistyped my thought. I was surprised that it took that long to get to the target. I would have thought a lot sooner. What is the initial velocity of that fired round?

Likely something over 3000fps, I have no idea what weight of bullet they fired though.

 

 

 I also don't know how fast it's moving after 3400+ meters. Likely low-mid range handgun velocities but still dealing with a muh heavier projectile. I'd be interested in seeing the ballistics on it but the furthest range on any .50bmg ballistics chart I can find is 2000yds

I had no idea that was possible.

When it comes to us Canadians, anything is possible.
