The new world record for longest shot is 3,400 meters (3,720 yards).
Sport shooter and small-arms designer Vladislav Lobaev set a new world record for long-range shooting. He set the record with a Lobaev Arms SVLK-14 S rifle of his own design.
Watch this new world record being set in this video and learn a few things about long distance shooting.
Although that shot wasn’t center punch, it hit the target board and according to the video, it qualifies as a hit. I wonder how long it took for the bullet to reach the target? A range of 3,720 yards is a mammoth distance for sniper.
Many say records are meant to be broken. I wonder how long this record will stand?
