"Snipers" being the important word here. As in highly highly trained soldiers with very very good equipment.

BTW the longest sniper shot ever was by a Canadian sniper Crpl. Rob Furlong in Afghanistan. He broke Carlos Hathcocks record with a 2,657 yard kill with a McMillan TAC-50.

[quote=Buckshot;23945]1000 yards???? I don't think so. How could you get an animal to stand still long enough for the bullet to get there.


That brings up a good question. The speed of sound is around 6-700 miles an hour I think. How fast are these bullets going? Depends on the gun and ammo of course but would it hear the shot before it got there?

That depends alot on the type of round. The speed of sound is approx. 2100 ft/sec. You have to be approximate b/c it varies with humidity, elevation, temperature, etc. With some rounds, like the 5.56 (.223) for example, the MV is sometimes over 2700 ft/sec so no to target wont hear the shot before it hits.

the 30-06, as well as the "sniper rounds" .308, and .50 BMG all have MV's approaching 3000 ft/sec, so again its doubtful that the shot would be heard.

Obviously the bullets will slow down as they travel, so you cant really say for sure. Ive spoken to quite a few OEF snipers who say that when they take shots and miss, the targets pretty much never show any signs that they were aware that they were being shot at.
