Ukraine Claims New World Record for Longest Sniper Kill

Ukrainian military sources have claimed that a SBU sniper has set a new world record for the longest sniper kill at 3.8km.

The shot was said to have been taken with the MAYAK “Lord of the Horizon” rifle, a Ukrainian single-shot anti-material rifle chambered in 12.7x114mm.

A video was also released showing the purported kill. From shot to impact, there is a nearly 10 second gap in time, suggesting a bullet travel distance of several kilometers.

If confirmed, this would beat the current reported record of 3.54km, which is held by an unnamed Canadian Joint Task Force 2 sniper that reportedly killed an ISIS militant in Iraq in 2017.
