Hahahaha what were "They" using, a 105mm?
No accutually they were using a 50 cal that they sorta from what I've herd... herld it in a sence. :uhh: I mean most of you know what I mean when I say that. I was told this by a former SF member. Now all that I know is that a few snipers that were together put there heads together and came up with a theory. If we do this and this.... that should work. It was a shot taken from one country over the border to another. I was not given many details. I dont know if this kinda shot is possible or not. I work in law enforcement.... we dont take shots from much farther than like say 300 yards...lol. I was just merly checking the story to see if any of you thought it was possible.
I didnt look to hard but couldn't really find the possible distance a 50 cal could travel, I highly doubt it's 7 miles let alone hitting something at that range.
There is a thread here somewhere about Rob Furlong, the Canuak sniper that holds the wolrd record for the longest confirmed kill in the ballpark of 2,600 yrds IIRC.
