    Yup the 107 is a nice piece of kit. I prefer the TAC-50 though. JMO

      The M107 isn't as accurate as the TAC-50. Any opinions on the more accurate M95?

      Unfortunately, the signature of all the 50s are their weakness.

      Based on their heavily forested AO with limited LR potential, the Finns chose the Sako M23 in 7.62x51 NATO.

          I believe that the Finnish chose the M23 in 7.62x51mm largely based on the terrain in their country. A very large percentage of the country are forest, minimizing the maximum effect that the .50 bmg round generates. Any future defence of the homeland, like in 1939 & 1944 will largely be an infantry conflict. As in 1939, after this mess in Ukraine the Russians will need at least a decade to rebuild their army.

            Correct the reasons for the ,50 BMG rifle are penetration power, It can turn cover into concelment unless it's really solid. Range, in wide open environments you need to outrange the opposition, if they can reach 1000m you want to be beyond that. With a suppressor and an area that allows the muzzle blast to me minimized, it then becomes a guessing game where exactly the shot came from.

              Well said. At the two way range, one wants their effective range to exceed their opponents.
