    looking at high quality sniper in .308

    Hey guys it has been my dream for ever to own a high quality, military grade sniper rifle. I have narrowed it down to these rifles: Accuracy international AW, Sako TRG 22, FN Spr A5m, or the Iron Brigade Norm Chandler Rifle. If you have any others to look at let me know. I am primarily looking at the TRG and AW, but just want to know what you guys think. Again I am trying to keep it to the .308 and the effective range of 550 to 750 yards. O and on a side note i plan on getting a tac ops later, but right now i am close to achieving my goal in a couple months so i am sticking with it.

    Thanks guys

    I have had the pleasure of shooting all of the rifles listed in your choices. The rifle I prefered was the AI. The particular AI I was shooting was equipped with the S&B 50mm scope. An overall expensive package which shot consistent 1/2 moa or better with FGM ammo.

    The best thin you could do before you shell out the money is T&E these weapons and find which one suits you the best.
    Professionals that demand nothing less than the best, demand Tac Ops.

    Sako TRG and AI AW is a $2000 difference, even though they are really comparable. So what you need and what you prefer. Both rifles are proven platforms given the shooter skill.

    get the chandler.

    it's a sweet set up.

    the XM-3 is awesome, but there's nothing wrong with their entry level gun either.
    Fast is fine. Accuracy is final. You need to learn to shoot slow, real fast- Wyatt Earp

    on the surface, this seems to be an enviable conundrum.

    How much time do you have behind precision or tactical rifles?

    I don't see a Tac Ops up there... I thought I would be the first to throw that out... It would be my choice if price was no object.

    What's a Sniper rifle? I don't know of any of us on here that use Sniper rifles. Most of us do use High precision firearms though. Snipers are military, LEO, or government marksmen used to engage hostile "bad guys". I'm none of the above, so i'm not a Sniper, nor is my rifle a "Sniper" rifle even though it may "appear" as such. Remember, the press is always waiting to exaggerate the truth, don't give them the ammo.

    Remember the following;

    snip·er (snī'pər) n.

    1. A skilled military shooter detailed to spot and pick off enemy soldiers from a concealed place.
    2. One who shoots at other people from a concealed place.

    As precision tactical rifles go, my vote is on the AI AW.

    I'm a suprised not to see Tac Ops onyour list. If forced to buy from the list I know what I'd buy, but I prefer to see Mike on the list - as he would be my first choice.
