re

It has a gas piston I see, must be very nice.

I don't really see how it would be any better than a FAL mind.

Looks nice, but will it be put into service?
Very very very slim chance it would ever see official duty (outside of the possibiliy of small special operations units). If you thought finding .300 WM Match ammo would be hard during combat, try finding .300 RSUM!!

I believe the SEALS use an SR-25. Outside of that, there really is no point. All their fields are covered. They have decent semi-autos for Sniper teams all across the board; M21, SR-25, etc. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Some of the SEAL teams use a Mk23 (SR25) as do some of the SF teams, as do some of the ranger battaltions. I still have not heard much praise for it though....

Mk23?
thought that was thier gargantuan pistol :)
do you mean SR-25 Mk11 Mod 0?

the .300 RSAUM model is gonna have the same ballistics as a .300 WM so i think that any sniper that needs that range will go with a .300 Win Mag and a bolt action rifle

i really dont know perticulars, but the only thing i do know for sure is that is considered a SPR. its built off M4 recievers, it has an interesting muzzle break, similar to the AK74s. it takes a supressor easily (it just slides on) and looks ergonomic.

Mk11, Mk23, No4Mk1, mk19, etc etc etc
