I read that item in this morning's news read. Canadian snipers have performed very well for many years. The JTF2 has produced some outstanding marksmen, but the government doesn't like to give them too much exposure. They do practice in some adverse conditions in order to gain the experience and confidence to deliver the goods.

3450m beating the previous record by 1000m plus, all I can say is WOW. Shot with a McMillian TAC-50. So that means Canadian snipers now hold 3 of the 5 longest recorded sniper kills, the other 2 a Brit and an American.

Amazing. And I thought 800 yards was a long poke.
All I can say is that the lighting strikes before they hear the thunder.

An article published yesterday in the Washington Post which is worth reading is entitled "How Canada's small military produced deadly, record-breaking snipers."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/06/23/how-canadas-tiny-military-produced-deadly-record-breaking-snipers/?utm_term=.9fcb5aafadd4

It focuses on the history of shooters in Canada, especially among the native population.
