Worldwide, the trend is similar. The preferred sniper cartridge in Russia is another. This cartridge was introduced inand both Russian sniper rifles of the modern era, the Mosin—Nagant and the Dragunov sniper rifleare chambered for it. Certain commercial cartridges designed with only performance in mind, without the logistical constraints of most armies, have also gained popularity in the s.
These include the 7 mm Remington Magnum 7. These cartridges offer better ballistic performance and greater effective range than the 7. Though they are not as powerful as. Though not the typical role for the Barrett, it does have certain desirable long range characteristics.
Snipers may also employ anti-materiel rifles in sniping roles against targets such as vehicles, equipment and structures, or for the long-range destruction of explosive devices; these rifles may also be used against personnel. Anti-materiel rifles tend to be semi-automatic and of a larger caliber than other rifles, using cartridges such as the. These large cartridges are required to be able to fire projectiles containing payloads such as explosives, armor-piercing cores, incendiaries or combinations of these, such as the Raufoss Mk projectile.
Due to the considerable size and weight of anti-materiel rifles, two- or three-man sniper teams become necessary. Barrel[ edit ] Barrels are normally of precise manufacture and of a heavier cross section than more traditional barrels in order to reduce the change in impact points between a first shot from a cold barrel and a follow-up shot from a warm barrel.
Unlike many battle and assault rifles, the bores are usually not chromed to avoid inaccuracy due to an uneven treatment. When installed, barrels are often free-floated: The end of the barrel is usually crowned or machined to form a rebated area around the muzzle proper to avoid asymmetry or damage, and consequent inaccuracy. Alternatively, some rifles, such as the Dragunov or Walther WA, provide structures at the fore-end to provide tension on the barrel in order to counteract barrel drop and other alterations in barrel shape.
External longitudinal fluting that contributes to heat dissipation by increasing the surface area, while simultaneously decreasing the weight of the barrel, is sometimes used on sniper-rifle barrels. Sniper-rifle barrels may also utilise a threaded muzzle or combination device muzzle brake or flash suppressor and attachment mount to allow the fitting of a sound suppressor.
These suppressors often have a means of adjusting the point of impact while fitted. Military sniper rifles tend to have barrel lengths of Police sniper rifles may use shorter barrels to improve handling characteristics.

The shorter barrels' muzzle velocity loss is unimportant at closer ranges; the impact velocity of the bullet is more than sufficient. The most common special feature of a sniper rifle stock is the adjustable cheek piece, where the shooter's cheek meets the rear of the stock. For most rifles equipped with a telescopic sight, this area is raised slightly, because the telescope is positioned higher than iron sights. A cheek piece is simply a section of the stock that can be adjusted up or down to suit the individual shooter.
To further aid this individual fitting, the stock can sometimes also be adjusted for length, often by varying the number of inserts at the rear of the stock where it meets the shooter's shoulder.
Sniper stocks are typically designed to avoid making contact with the barrel of the weapon. M24 SWS with classic stock and receiver. Barrett MRAD modular sniper rifle, with modern stock and receiver. Accessories[ edit ] An adjustable sling is often fitted on the rifle, used by the sniper to achieve better stability when standing, kneeling, or sitting.
The sniper uses the sling to "lock-in" by wrapping his non-firing arm into the sling forcing his arm to be still. After Hale grabs and punches Gray with ease, Gray declares that he is not the one who will be fighting, but instead Gray's daughter named Oliviaan underage girl, will fight Hale. Hale refuses to fight her, ultimately granting Mann Co. Gray proceeds to fire the mercenaries, and the Administrator orders Miss Pauling, her assistant, to hide.

They burn the paper copies, learning that the microfiche copies had been destroyed a year earlier. Demoman and Soldier go to the courthouse to locate Scout and Spy, but they reveal themselves to the court and are arrested.
The four mercenaries are tried at court, convicted of municipal misfeasance, and sentenced to hang. Miss Pauling arrives just in time to save the four by clearing up questions of mayoral duties.
