    what sniper schools have you graduated from? who do you plan to stalk with this "rifel" in tow?

    until then, it's just a target rifle, or a hunting rifle. and an AR would suit you best if you're looking for a semi-auto.

    Did you mean terminology?

    If you want a precision rifle, then steer clear of semi-autos, especially if you are on a limited budget. However, if you do want a semi, then I agree with the above -- an AR is your best answer. For bolt-action, a Savage would be your best bet. Strap that puppy under a Tasco Super Sniper and you'll be good to go.

    shooting in the desert offers better training than any school you could attend.

    eek, sorry for "rifel" type o.

    What has the best range/accuracy out of the bunch? I keep hearing good things about 300 win. I know a 50 cal will get out there and touch someone at 2 miles, but I would rather have a rifle I could carry comfortably.

    Also I was in a gun shop the other day and the owner said something about a 7mm having a 1.5 mile range but no one makes a standered issue military rifle in it. Sounds like he was blowing smoke up my ass.

    i believe that 9mm has a range of almost 2 miles when you launch it perfectly into the air.

    If you aren't well trained, I would get a hunting rifle with a mil dot scope in 7mm mag. This calibre has a pretty flat trajectory and you don't have to do a lot of figuring on drop rates.
    The U.S. Secret Service switched to this calibre recently for these reasons.

    .338 Lapua... the round was designed to be a sniper round.

    http://www.snipercentral.com/338.htm

    I think a 7mm mag could also reach out and touch someone pretty far out. Maybe not 2 miles though.

    Christ, a lot of rounds can reach out to 1000 yards and further... How far do you plan on shooting? .308, .300 win mag, and 7mm mag would all work...

    Besides, I thought you knew everything about guns and trained yourself to have skills comparable to every spec ops team out there...

    the problem with .338 Lapua is it's so damn expensive. Even empty brass is well over $1 a round, so it's not even all that cheap to reload.

    Gotta pay to play.

    I wouldn't go with that round because of the cost either. But if I really did want a long range gun, then that's what I would probably go wth. The longest range around here though is only 600 yards. Can hit that distance with a lot of different rounds .
