    First large-calibre guns snipers began to use at the Soviet-German front in 1943.

    By the best large-calibre cartridge for the sniper firing- the french cartridge of 13,2Ñ…99(96) mm . But from unification of standards of NATO, forgot then about him, because for a large-calibre machine gun there was not a substantial difference. And catridge 14,5Ñ…114 and 20Ñ…88, though and carry in 1,5 time more energy, but badly fly directionally. During WW2, only the experienced snipers, live targets could hit from such rifles.

    Why does one want a large calibre sniper rifle:

    Large calibre means:
    Longer range
    Lesser rate of fire
    Heavier damages (to pill boxex, bunkers and vehicles and target is not man)
    Almost a single shot weapon..
    Large areas and longer ranges to dominate...

    In present battlefield conditions where is its requirements ?
    Except on LC where else ??

    On LC India has its AMR which is quite sufficient.
