Marine Corps Systems Command’s Infantry Weapons Systems conducted a market research caliber study July 13, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., to inform Marine Corps acquisition leaders about future Marine sniper weapon system requirements. During the study, IWS collected ballistic data on three different caliber bullets (from left)—the 7.62mm NATO, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum—fired by Marine Corps snipers using different rifles at distances ranging from 900 to 1,500 meters to target.
