Sniper evolution behind record shot | Shephard Media

Canadian snipers have gained a world-leading reputation and now account for three of the top five world record shots following news of their latest feat.

A Canadian sniper shattered the world record for a confirmed sniper kill after a member of the country’s special forces shot an Islamic State insurgent at a distance of almost 3.5km during an operation that took place within the last month in Iraq.

The Department for National Defence (DND) confirmed the feat in an official statement but could not give further specific details owing to operational security concerns.
