My QRP best contact was my first QSO in 50 years.
On 2013, March 17, 1700 EST, on 20M 14.041, between WY4J and KK4LPG, 862 miles.
Registered on www.QRZ.com, and confirmed.
TX = 1 Watt out, SWL = 1:5, 0.2 Watt in the antenna.
So, my little 0.2 Watt for 862 miles is equivalent to 4310 miles per watt !
Just a drop in the QRP bucket.
