Trust me brother. The full blown Cheytac Intervention is THE STANDARD right now for a "Long Range Tactical Solution" Shooting. Well, that and the World Record Grouping it holds at over 2400 yards.

PS - 1760 is ONE MILE.
im just speaking of the aesthetics lol. its freekin ugly in grotesque quasimodo's child sorta way.

and the A10 is not an ugly aircraft

wasnt there a guy a few months back in the forums shooting 2" groups at 1000yds with a mini-14?? i think the cheytac guys need to consult with him they could done it cheaper.

seriously tho to the OP where ya gonna get ammo?? even reloading 40cal rifle bullets cant be cheap.

Personally I think that weapon is a thing of ultimate beauty. But when viewing it, I am picturing what I could do with a weapon system like that, given the need and the right battlefield conditions.

Chey-Tac is a company that is being torn apart from the inside, which is too bad, because the great minds that invented this monster are truly some of the best in the business.

The biggest problem is that the brass, the bullets, the software. All of it. It's all proprietary. You buy their weapon, then you have to buy their ammo to feed it. The software is only available from their dealers and it's gun/caliber specific based on application.

It's to bad really because they have the "Tactical Long Range" community on a string.

Sorry ,but I cannot recall when the SHTF and ppl are falling over with no direction of where the shot came from. If I wondered how "Pretty" the rifle was that made us scramble for cover.

there is liekly only a handful of peeps in the world that can put that round and rifle into use at its full potential. even with gear that "helps" the shooter its not just lining up a xhair and yanking the trigger.

its a tool that will help a superb shooter but liekly do jack for your average shlub.

chuck yeager put it the best "it is the man not the machine"

that isnt saying that their round and rifle arent a technological wonder. just buying one isnt going to make you into vasily zaitsev or carlos hathcock.

7.74 per round isn't bad. the bullet is turned in a cnc lathe has a ballistic co-efficient of.93(1.0 is perfect). .338 Lapua made by Lapua was 99.00 per 10 on sale at Midway, that's 10buck per and won't shoot half as far
