3.5km headshot

The elite sniper was using a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle while firing from a high-rise during an operation that took place within the last month in Iraq. It took under 10 seconds to hit the target.

At that range the terrorist would see a buddy go splat and at least 15 second later they would hear a gunshot or a crack. That would be so disorienting.

The article I read stated they shot several insurgents during the operation, set a record for only a few minutes before they broke their own record. Just mind boggling really.
