"U.S. bullets help Canadian snipers set world record Killing shot made at distance of 2,430 metres." Stephen Thorne Canadian Press "A world-record killing shot by a Canadian sniper detachment in Afghanistan could never have been made with the ammunition they were issued when they left Edmonton last winter, the triggerman said in a recent interview". "The Canadian .50-calibre rounds have a maximum range of between 2,200 and 2,300 metres. But the U.S. rounds, they discovered, "fly farther, faster," said Cpl. "Bill", a 26-year-old native of Fogo Island, Nfld. The two-man Canadian team, coupled with American Sgt. Zevon Durham of Greenville, S.C., made the kill from 2,430 metres, or nearly 2 1/2 kilometres, on the second shot". ************************* [URL=http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,320383,00.html] America's Most Wanted Guns[/URL] 1.
