Default Sniper Rifles

If you were to buy a sniper rifle, what would it be.... I know i would like a FN-Herstal 50cal, but they want 2500 for one...

But realisticly... What would you get, and why?

Does anyone have any first hand experiance with a 22-250?

All I know about a 22-250 is that I borrowed one to hunt with one time. it was a very flat shooting rifle if I remember right, barely had any kick also.

Um for a dream rifle I'd get a .416 cheytac.

But realistically for the best sniper rifle and next gun I will buy will be an xray 51 .308 from tac ops in Beverly hills. Guaranteed to .25 moa but most shoot well beyond that. Most are around .1moa and some even less than that. They are true works of art. The craftsmanship is second to none. $4500 for the xray 51. Just a gun and rings but u get what you pay for

heres some pics. all the engraving is hand done. the guy goes the extra mile on everything. All the screws are timed to where they all line up and match perfectly.

There's lots of nice gun packages out there, that are really tack drivers, and deliver consistent sub moa accuracy in almost any condition. BUT, you're gonna pay a pretty penny for them too. If you're looking for something that's consistent and a lot cheaper than the good deployment package rifles, just build your own. Now you don't have to actually build it yourself per say, especially if you're not really gun savvy. But you can buy all the components that you like, and have it set up by a good smith for a really fair price. Personally in the field of a true sniper rifle, (not a bet a martini huntin rifle) .308 is the only logical choice. You'll do a lot of shooting, and 300 win mag burns up barrels too quick. Start with a rem 700 action as a base. Cheap and reliable ( hell the m24 the army uses is just a suped up rem 700). A Mcmillan stock is a must. Throw some good bases, rings, and get a decent leupold tac scope with mil dot reticle and you're set!

One of the top builders is right here in louisiana. William Roscoe of Louisiana precision rifles. Great work at an affordable price(compared to other builders of the same quality)

No but it will be my next one. I was going to order it sometime in July but I don't think I want to part with the $ right now. I think I'm just going to save and order it for next year and keep the one I have for now

Her ya go C-Diddy, since those mean ol non-toxic oil fields wont let you look at gun sites, we will bring em to ya. Here is an ad for the 308 dpms sass.

I personally own a DPMS LR-308 24" Bull and the accuracy has proven to be superb. I routinely group 3 shots that measure <1/2 MOA at 100yds with Match ammo or handloads. The DPMS rifles are built to such tight tolerances that they will typically shoot as well as high-end bolt action rifles that sell for three times the price. You simply cannot buy a more accurate semi-auto rifle for the price.
Specifications of the LRT-SASS
Barrel:
18" Fluted Barrel with Panther Flash Hider Installed
416 Stainless Steel
6 grooves, right hand twist, 1:10
Button Rifled for accuracy
Bipod:
Harris 9-13" Swivel Series Bipod
Bipod adapter made by Fobus

Bolt & Carrier:
8620 steel bolt carrier, heat treated
and plated per Mil Spec
Phosphated steel bolt, heat treated
and plated per Mil Spec

Sights: SCOPE NOT INCLUDED!
Primary: Optics (Not Included)
Backup: Flip up Iron Sights (Included)
Upper Receiver:
Thick walled, extruded from 6066-T6 aluminum
Hard coat anodized per Mil Spec and Teflon coated black
A3 Style Flattop with Picatinny 1913 rail
Dust cover included
Includes shell deflector
Includes forward assist
Right hand ejection

Lower Receiver:
Milled from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum
Hard coat anodized per Mil Spec and Teflon coated black
integral trigger guard
Aluminum magazine release button
INCLUDES JP ADJUSTABLE TRIGGER!!
