I did considerably better with handloads in mine, but obviously that was never an option for those guys.So a scoped sniper had an 80 percent of the time just under a 3MOA rifle if I did the conversion right?
Not spectacular by our present standards but good enough.
By "our" I mean a bunch of keyboard hobbyists that shoot off benches.
All right next time Ill just use "my".
And, I've been looking for the quote all evening, cant find it, but towards the end of the war, a number of higher-ups were discussing what could be done to make their snipers more effective. It was apparent that even with their specially produced allocations of sniper ammunition that long range accuracy results left a lot to be desired. They flat out concluded it was unfortunate that Germany had chosen the wrong cartridge. They said that the 6.5x55 or even the 7x57 would have made a much better choice.
