Nice shot, mate!

An Australian sniper team picks off a Taliban commander - from 1.75 miles away.

An expert I did prise a few words from said that shooting at that distance beyond the weapons capability calls for luck, but it had still taken skill.

As someone who on occasion targets a small bullseye a couple hundred yards distant, my mind boggles at the thought of a couple thousand yards to target. Yes, large amounts of skill & luck involved.

Yeah, anything over a mile and a half is pretty good.
