Beyond 2500 yds
This post is mainly to try and learn from people here that know and also to satisfy a curiosity. Craig Harrison holds the longest confirmed kill with a 2.47 KM or 2700 yard shot. The shot, or shots, was made with a AI 338 lapua with a S&B PM 5-25x56 scope with internal elevation adjustment range of 62 MOA, far inferior elevation wise to say Nightforce. (the S&B adj info came directly from New England Custom Guns, distributor of S&B). Even with a Mil dot scope 18 MOA would be the max amount of added elevation using the reticle for a total of 80 MOA. (please correct me of I am wrong) given this info how would this soldier have gone about making this shot? My 338 edge would require 148 ish MOA to get to that distance and the Edge with a 300g Berger at 2850, I would have to assume, possesses substantially superior ballistics to whatever factory ammo was fed to his 338 Lapua.
The article I read said he made two hits on different people, how? Looking forward to hearing what people have to say. Also, I have S&B optics and they are second to none in many departments but why would a government in this case the UK pick a sniper scope with that limited amount of elevation Adj, as compared to some scopes with 100 MOA?
