    I don't know if either of these should hold that record, now if you want to call it the longest lucky shot, that might work. If it isn't a repeatable shot, once your scope it tuned, then it's just a lucky shot.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. Given enough tries, just sheer luck would explain a hit. Put 3 in a row on the bullseye and then we'll talk.

    What was the distance the Canadian sniper team hit with one shot? It was supposed to have been the farthest sniper shot in history.

    What was the distance the Canadian sniper team hit with one shot? It was supposed to have been the farthest sniper shot in history.

    "Perry's shot was from 2,310 meters, or 2,526 yards, breaking the record for the longest sniper kill. But glory was not his for long.

    A few days later, Cpl. Rob Furlong broke that record with a 2,430-meter (2,657-yard) shot against an enemy machine-gunner.
    ...
    The current record is 3,540 meters (3,871 yards), set by JTF-2 commandos against ISIS fighters in Mosul, Iraq, in 2017."

    So if I took a shot from my house and hit an 8" target at Premier Arms in Brownsburg I'd beat the record, by 528 yards. I'm thinking my neighbors would call the Police if I was seen on my roof with a rifle so I better not try.
    I'm waiting for my neighbors to call the police on me. I swap scopes around frequently and boresight through my closed sliding glass door to the house light that is about 75 yards away.
