So top 4 in the world ...America's not even on this list ( & FYI snipers unlike tug of war is done in war ~;)
Cherry Picking, you're only counting the top four, and leaving out the fact that of the 11 records listed, 5 of those shots were made by Americans, compared to Canada and the UK's two records a piece, Norway's and Australia's one a piece.
Also of note, of those 11 shots taken, 8 of the rifles used were American made. Not Australian, Canadian, or British, American made steel.
Given how often this record changes, how much the U.S. Military spends on technology and training, and how many Americans have laid claim to the longest sniper shot ever recorded (we did create that record, as well as lay claim to having trained one of the deadliest snipers in the world) I don't think it will be too long before we see an American as the record holder again.
But congratulations on winning a tug of war, you can finally say the Canadian Military is good at SOMETHING the American Military isn't.
