A good Mauser.
Although I do see the handiness of a lever action.

If this were not limited to rifles, I would also say a good 12 gauge pump action.

Cant mount a foregrip nd bipod with a woodstock (;

An H&K G36. It is not semi-automatic.

How many 338lm's are in the government system.

If all that makes that sniper rifle, is the match grade ammo, and the fifty had some, what would the effect overall difference be?

The government probably won't buy any match grade .50 BMG because they probably don't have the money to up grade a WW1 designed round, which has been working for them. If there is match ammo for the fifty, it is probably not seen by everyday grunt snipers, more likely that type is used by Seal teams, and special groups like them Seancslaughter, can you remember the dates of manufacture on the head stamps of any of the cases of rounds you fired? I am not doubting anything you have said, I am wondering if new ammo is being made, or if it is from old stock yet.

this was 2003-2004 so I don't recall the date of manufacture but I vividly remember delinking m2 ammo for use in our Barrett I'm sure they do have match ammo and yes it's probably much more accurate and has more oomph retained at distance but I'm still partial to the 338 lm it's been designed from the ground up as a sniper round and is mightily impressive
