Default Longest sniper Kill

I am proud to be a Newfoundlander. This guy really makes all of us proud. He got the ammunition from an American unit. It was some kind of teflon coated bullet.

From Wikipedia
The longest range recorded for a sniper kill currently stands at 2,430 meters (2,657 yd, or 1.51 miles), accomplished by Master Corporal Rob Furlong, a sniper from Newfoundland, Canada, in March 2002 during the war in Afghanistan. Furlong made this record-breaking kill while he was participating in Operation Anaconda. He was a member of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). To make the kill, he used a .50 caliber BMG (12.7 mm) McMillan TAC-50 bolt-action rifle.[9]

One of my best buddies went to high school with Rob. He told Steve (my buddy) the story.He shot twice. The first shot took the bag out of the guys hand. By the time he realized what was going on the next shot exposed his skull to daylight. BTW This guy is from an island off Newfoundland called Fogo island.

Greetings, Dave! Never been to your place- PEI is as close as I got.

Princess Pat's boys were some good people- did some jumps on joint ops with their folks out of Edmonton.
