Longest recorded rifleshot ever?

Does anybody know what it is? I'm aware of Kreg Slack's 3125 yd. prairie dog, but has there been anything farther on a live target??

    ya like 2700 yard, by a canadian sniper in afganistan. I dont know exactly the distance but it was with a mcMillian 50. I guess us candians can brag bout that since it broke a record from vietnam, and that was Carlos Hathcocks kill at about 2500 with a 50.

    Heard he was happy to have the American ammo. Said he couldn't have done it with the Canadian stuff. It's loaded to "cool". [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Hope this link works. http://www.riflebarrels.com/articles.../50sniping.htm

    The article is at the Lilja Barrels website under articles and then go to .50 cal information.

    The kill was measured at 2,430 meters.
