    I am still struggling from 5 feet on the xbox. Get 2 miles inside the border for when we go to war with the Canadas.

    what all do you have to take into account?

    curvature of the earth? wind speed obviously.. air temp?

    EDIT: A sniper must have the ability to accurately estimate the various factors that influence a bullet's trajectory and point of impact, such as range to the target, wind direction, wind velocity, air density, elevation, and even the Coriolis effect due to the rotation of the Earth.

    It's a lucky shot and he was just lobbing bullets like long range varmint hunters. Even without all of the factors you mentioned, the inherent mechanical abilites of the rifle mean the bullet could strike anywhere in a 3 foot circle at that range. Add in just wind which could blow in different directions at different ranges and the flight instability when the bullet goes subsonic and the luck coefficient grows.

    They should use ISIS captives and make this an Olympic event.

    2 mile kills would be a drop in the hat, and USA would reign supreme again.

    LMAO - Canadians are too afraid to move in closer, so they're taking shots from 2 miles out. How many misses did he have that weren't reported?
