The U.S. Army has ordered 38.4 million rounds of .300 Winchester magnum ammunition for its newly modified M-24 sniper rifles, as well as similar SOCOMs Mk13 models.
Finally. One bit of concern, though:
By replacing the barrel and receiver of the $6,700 M24 sniper rifle, for about $4,000, you can fire the .300 Winchester Magnum round.
$4000? Holy cow! One upside is that 38.4 million rounds will soon be once-fired and on the used market.
