Default Sniper Rifle

My dad and myself are thinking of buying a sniper rifle, to be more exact an AI Arctic Warfare Super Magnum, anybody else here fired one or at least have some comment? stats are:

Caliber: .338 Lapua (8.60x70mm), .300 Win Mag, 7mm Rem Mag
Operation: Bolt Action
Length: 1270mm
Barrel lenght: 686mm (.338 Lapua), 660mm (.300 and 7mm)
Weight: 6.8kg empty without telescope
Magazine Capacity: 5 round box magazine
Maximum Effective Range: ca. 1100+ m

*note: me and my dad have both got an Enfield Enforcer each and always use gun ranges, i don't want people making comments like "why the hell do you have a gun?" "whats the point?" etc.

I would say why spend the money for a more powerful rifle if all you're shooting at is targets? But whatever floats your boat.
I've never used one in real life...but it packs a punch in Counterstrike! ;D

I love that gun... I would go for it... I wish the swiss sniper recon team was armed with them, since I'm hoping to join them (I get conscripted in 6 months, so why not choose a devision I will enjoy )

I was under the imperssion the AW basically was a NATO sniper rifle, being derived from the british L96 sniper rifle.

From what I have read, the whole series is a very accurate set of rifles, but I cannot really comment. Although I'd love an L96 airsoft replica.

Default Re: Sniper Rifle

Hmmm... I prefer American made firearms. If this is [becuase I have never heard of it] go for it, but for overall performance, Winchester 30/06 is my personal favorite. A large round, and moderate recoil, and can often be bought quite cheaply. A few upgrades such as a bipod, scope, and maybe a high cap. mag if possible, and youre looking at a great gun. But I am only a hunter, so I look more towards the factor of 'Will it kill a buck? or not?'

And, I try to say politly, it would probably be appreciated if you have fired the gun, own it, etc. instead of learning of it from a videogame, as such is un-realistic. Thanks.

seen and studied, but you might find in England the only gun it is legal to own (with a liscence) is a hunting shotgun, so no, i've not actually used
