The MacMillan TAC-50 got to be the top of the heap, and is definitely not used for bird hunting. Awesome long gun. (Wikipedia) ln Afghanistan in 2002, Corporal Rob Furlong of the Canadian Forces used a McMillan TAC-50 and 750 grain Hornady A-MAX  very-low-drag bullets to kill a Taliban insurgent at a range of 2,430 meters (2,657 yd/1.509 miles), the longest recorded sniper kill in history
BTW, the 7.62 SVD (Dragunov) used to be / is made in license by both Iraq and Iran.
