Here's the first MSR to hit the streets of Instructableville. I spent a while on this and it turned out really good. I may post if there are some good comments and ratings ( ya know, if the stars show up on the side!).
SOCOM (Special Operations Command) was created in 1987 to manage our nation’s special operations elements. The War on Terror has soldiers from SOCOM deployed at the sharp end of the spear around the world, in both rural and urban environments. The unprecedented OPTEMPO (operational tempo) has required SOCOM be given an adequate budget to ensure that the men who do the war’s heavy lifting are adequately trained and equipped. SOCOM units also operate in rapidly changing conditions, using methodologies and techniques not ideally suited to larger conventional units due to their complexity and risk. After carefully factoring in all the above considerations, SOCOM recently opened a solicitation for a new PSR (Precision Sniper Rifle) that would be required to perform out to 1,500 meters. The rifle you see featured here is Remington’s patent-pending response.--- The Internet.
