Russian long-range rifle specialist Lobaev Arms is announcing that they’ve been contracted to produce a new sniper rifle tasked with being effective well outside of 4 miles, seven kilometers to be exact. The contract is with an unnamed foreign agency, not the Russian military.
The rifle to meet the requirements is the Lobaev DXL-5 Havok, chambered for .50 BMG. While 7,655 yards is a stretch even for the renowned long-reaching cartridge, Lobaev says they have special ammunition in development as well.
