* SLAP ammo is not suitable or safe for some rifles.

This round approximates the Raufoss Mk 211 Grade A trajectory.

This round approximates the Raufoss Mk 211 Grade A trajectory.

U.S. Department of Defense review reconfirmed that the Mk 211 was legal to employ against both materiel arid personnel targets. Propaganda generated by the ICRC claim has been sufficient that some American snipers in Iraq actually carry with them copies of the Department of Defense legal review.

More recently, research has begun on a new ,50-caliber sniping round, an especially accurate projectile for antipersonnel use. Dubbed the XM1022, or Long Range Tactical Sniper Cartridge, its trajectory will parallel the Raufoss so a sniper can switch from one to the other and use the same BDC settings.

Earlier research on a depleted-uranium projectile has apparently gone by the wayside. I

had a chance to examine one of these bullets, which had the same dimensions as a 709-grain slug, but it weighed twice as much. While that denser mass meant more momentum and better penetration, it also meant considerably more recoil to attain the velocity needed for long-range shooting.
