    Here is a list based on number of kills. By that measure, the top guy is a Finn.

    I would like to see what Craig Harrison could do with a Whitworth rifle, or conversely what Sgt Grace of the 4th Georgia Infantry could do with Harrison's weapon.

    He (Guinness Worlds Record holder) killed the target from 2475m, longest recorded sniper shot ever as of today.

    Alsoo the longest tank on tank killing shot in history (from over 5100m) was fired by the British Challenger tank.
