Just curious, can anyone tell if there is on the market .338 rifle that disassembles like this AI Covert model.

... or is this impossible due to ballistic problems (too powerful ammo). That kind of Lego system just breaks down.

The Parker-Hale 7.62 mm sniper rifle has reached the end of its lifecycle, said Williams. The service is trying to replace it with a rifle than can fire .338 caliber rounds. “That rifle is pretty much the same weight [as the Parker-Hale]. The recoil is the same, but we have farther distances. We hope to get out to 1,200-1,500 meters with this new round,” said Williams. The main sniper weapon currently is the McMillan .50 caliber rifle.


Those distances are possible to achieve with 338LM.



I shooted janter -plate (45cm wide, 80cm height) to 1480m with my personal Sako TRG 42. Bullet was 16.2/250 LockBase Lapua.



Finding right elevation took "few" :oops: shots, spotter didnt see bullet turbulence at all (fog, sidewind and mild rain) .

In fact, i had to shoot completely "blind", terrain around plate did not show bullet impacts.



After elevation came out, it was like a turkey shoot, 3 shots in a row rapidly, all hits. "group" size was 35cm wide, but only 10cm high.



I dont know any fact about 338/1500m terminal effects, but torso-hit will at least hurt like hell...





P.S.

Afterwards, i watched a video.

Turbulence was visible, and i was little bit suprised about trajectory cealing.

Max height was over top of the full-size pinewoods...perhaps i´ll try mortar sights instead of zeiss next time...  :shock:  8)  :lol:

AI Covert comes only in 7.62 Nato.



Windrunner is available in 338LM and can be dissassembled easily. It has a 30" barrel so it needs a big bag anyway. Weigh is 22 lbs meaning it is closer to a .50 BMG than a .308 in weight.



They do make a .308 version too and that fits intoa small case just like the AI Covert.



Folding stocks are availble to PGM Hecate and TRG-42 both in 338LM.
