It was confirmed by Canada’s Armed Forces that a sniper from Joint Task Force 2 (JTF-2) neutralized an ISIS target in Iraq at over 3,540 meters in 2017. The shot is the longest and one of the most difficult kill shots in military history. There are different factors in shooting at longer distances including but not limited to gravity, wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, and altitude. Landing a shot at this distance requires not only knowledge of how you handle the weapon but a rifle capable of performing at that level. This latest record was done with the McMillan Firearms Tac-50.
