    Hi, quick question
    Does anyone know the name of a .338 sniper rifle? Any specifications you know as well would be really useful, especially range
    Thanks!

    I just typed ".338 sniper rifle" into Google and got a bunch of hits that look promising...

    Any reason why it has to be specifically .338?

    I came up with the same thing as Malc-Downing when I searched Google, probably best to do some research into it first though, to make sure it's definitely what you're looking for...

    I assume one of your characters will be using one of these? Here's a link to a site that shows the bullet drop depending on distance and things like that for .338 rifle
