There are scopes now with built in ballistic computers that work out all the variables.

KeezyDoesIt - Canada has a military?

Why would you say something so stupid.

Wild guess but I'll say it was a joke based on the fact Canada isn't known for having a military nor do they need one with their badass big brother joined at the hip


it's an ignorant post given how active Canada is on the world stage for such a small population.

their is a tough bit of reality though...the canadian military is in a "decade of darkness":

"The Liberal government has stripped $8.4 billion out of the equipment purchased budget with a promise to reinstall it sometime in the 2030s."

During the 2015 election, Justin Trudeau pledged to not cut defence spending and to live up to the pledge made by the former government of reaching the NATO funding goal of two per cent of GDP.

Canada currently ranks last in that funding model at just .99 per cent of GDP being spent on defense."


Canadian soldiers and military are top notch, but we are increasingly sending them out with insufficient equipment that increases the probability of failed missions and unneccessary death.

The Canadian military's role on the world stage, despite having a different mission/scale than the Americans' is a proud part of our heritage.

I voted for Trudeau, but i'm angered and ashamed by his parties treatment of the armed forces.

You may want to stick with the current news - in a laughable bit of theatre, Chrystia Freeland announced that we are increasing spending on defence because we can't count on Trump. It just happens that we are doing exactly what he wants us to do. $62 billion over the next 20 years.

 


Good news on my eyes...but still gets us to only 1.4% of GDP vs the 2% that is recommended and committed to their own militaries by NATO allies.

ARRGGHHHH...where's the video for the top pick?????
Canadians' have a huge hard-on for McMillan .338's don't they?

Nope, not at all.

The Cdn forces .338 is the Canadian made PGW Timberwolf.

the McMillan, and the gun used for this shot, was the Tac-50 setup in a Cadex Dual Strike chassis.

Cdn snipers mostly use S&B PMII (5-25) scopes but JTF2 obviously has more flexibility with equipment.. I've seen pics of them with Nightforce optics.

I regularly shoot out to a mile +.. this was a hell of a shot.

Do you have any idea how much the Earth moves in ten seconds?


That has no impact on this problem as the earth was moving when the trigger was pulled.

You would be wrong.

Google sniper and Coriolis effect.

I guess I cant disagree but most of my physics problems don't deal with large distances. But after reading I get the best understanding when throwing a ball straight up when in a car or when on merry-go-round.

Correct.  On shorter shots it is not an issue.

came to post the same article. Amazing! Good job to our Friends of the North!

Had a buddy who was a sniper and his longest confirmed was like 1420 or something like that and that utterly blew my mind. This is like some video game shit actually not even that because motherfuckers wouldn't even render at that distance in college duty LOL

 

Joey_Diaz_Army - 

Amazing really.

Obviously it's no coincidance Canada has 3 of the top 4 longest distance sniper kills.  Why?

More focussed sniper strategy/mission over there? Program encourages/trains for longer engagements compared w/other allies? Equipment?

I'd like to know.  Like I said, surely can't be just a coincidence it's Canada's snipers regularly smashing these records?

Anyway, amazing work by that guy.


We're just better shots. It's the ice in our veins. Benefits of living in the frozen north, homie.

Just read briefly about the optic you mentioned. Holy shitballs even at x25 times magnification what does a man sized target look like at that distance?

Can't even fathom a shot from that far away.

That's an eternity

I think I mistyped my thought. I was surprised that it took that long to get to the target. I would have thought a lot sooner. What is the initial velocity of that fired round?

Likely something over 3000fps, I have no idea what weight of bullet they fired though.

 

 

 I also don't know how fast it's moving after 3400+ meters. Likely low-mid range handgun velocities but still dealing with a muh heavier projectile. I'd be interested in seeing the ballistics on it but the furthest range on any .50bmg ballistics chart I can find is 2000yds

10 fucking seconds from the moment he fired to point of impact. Insane.

My Canadian grandfather fought in ww2 so please go fuck yourself

Nah don't think I will. Please go on about other people's accomplishments though :)
actually please go fuck yourself.

I had no idea that was possible.

When it comes to us Canadians, anything is possible.
Hold my beer!
