"Apparently, a Canadian sniper in the elite special forces, JTF 2, set the record for the longest confirmed kill shot at a distance of 3,450 meters(2.14 miles) away from the target, beating the old record by almost a 1,000 meters. The sniper used a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle, firing from a high-rise killing an Iraqi insurgent in a matter of 10 seconds preventing an attack on Iraqi security forces. That's an amazing feat including taking into account of the Coriolis effect with excellent work between the sniper and his observer partner. And I thought my deteriorating no-scope awping skills were good in Counter-Strike.
...A military insider told The Globe: "This is an incredible feat. It is a world record that might never be equalled."
