I just read this;
British sniper takes out Taliban rebel at over 2700 yds with
AW .338 Lapua in Afganistan breaking the Canadian sniper's .50 BMG shot by almost 100 yds.

That's what they call "shoot'n them out where the dandy lions grow".

The second guy might have heard the first one get shot! Speed of sound is 1125 fps so at 8100 feet that would be about 7 seconds.

Some of it is always luck but it sure takes a steady hand and knowing your rifle to get anywhere close.
