There has been a long standing request by Russian snipers to upgrade their standard sniper rifle from the SVD. There is nothing wrong with the SVD for what it was designed for. But when the snipers need a precision long range rifle, the SVD does not perform up to the modern sniper rifle standard. A formal request for a new bolt action sniper rifle was made, and in 1998 Vladimir Stronskiy designed and delivered to the Arms R&D center of the Izhmash OJSC the Snaiperskaya Vintovka (sniper rifle), model 1998. (SV-98).
Still working on a long distance .308 load for my Remington 700 aac-sd, Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 mrad ffp, Specwar 762 can.
Today’s test consisted of-
Hornady 168gr BTHP each weighed to +/- .02gr
New Lake City Brass sized & annealed
CCI 200 Primer
H335 powder 2 batches 1st 42gr 2nd 42.5gr measured to .00 accuracy.
42gr had an avg 2564fps with a 30fps max variance and good accuracy.
42.5gr had an avg 2617fps with a 28fps max variance and better accuracy.
Look at the staple size for a scale reference on the targets that were at 100 yards
I need to check max loads and if it doesn’t exceed them I’m going to try 43gr next, the 42.5gr didn’t show any over pressure signs so it should be fine.
I think as a generation we are experiencing the fallout of certain things getting closer and closer to no longer being a counterculture and now that major culture is accessible or becoming more accessible to more people, a light at the end of the tunnel is visible to many and that’s. so attractive. And people deserve an end to marginalization. but like that’s how it’s going to get us. Its going to present this deal where you can over time become more accepted among the people who committed violence against you so long as you take their tools and marginalize elements of your cohort that are. less marketable. less reproductive of the economic unit. Less exploitable under capitalism. Cannot have some kind of normativity related to or adapted unto them. Any number of little factors that make them less attractive to major society. In broadly different ways. Think wide sweep machine gun, not sniper rifle precision.
and like its going to be so tempting because not being the freak for once is such a relief and impending disaster on the horizon will make it look logical to ‘clean house’ of the less comprehensible or useful peers. So that when disaster hits we can say ‘look! we’re so deserving! We’re just like you! Pass over us!’
Lower Receiver- Aero Precision
-Magpul black MOE stock
Upper Receiver- Del-Ton 16" Midlength
-Magpul MOE hand guard
-Magpul MLOK MVG
-1-4x Optic with Micro Red Dot (from a small company. My brother bought it for me after I got back from Missouri. It’s not high quality but it’s durable, it keeps a zero, and the glass is pretty clear.)
I plan on moving the foregrip back a little and mounting a bipod on the front. I also plan to mount a Inforce WML on the handguard.
I’m going to change out the BCG and the charging handle for a BCM BCG and a BCM Gunfighter charging handle. And last but not least, I’m going to get a Magpul MOE-K grip instead of the standard A2 pistol grip.
Overall, it’s going to be a heavy rifle. But it’s mostly for bench shooting and the occasional hog hunt. My AK is my main rifle for self defense. This is why I never have any money. *sweats nervously*
