        So, it seems that after the modernization of production with gunpowder, everything is fine too.
        There shells for new guns began to shoot further, and new charges should go to modernized tanks. Not so much for cartridges of new gunpowder.

    Powerful thing. Such rifles perfectly knock out enemy manpower from a long distance. And pose a danger to lightly armored vehicles.

    The mentioned 12,7 mm cartridge has a brass sleeve and a sniper bullet, whose weight is 145 g.


    145 grams - the weight of the whole cartridge. The bullet weighs less - 59,2 g.

    Even the ShVAK air gun 20 mm shell weighed 92 grams

    I wonder what is the point of such news? If the army has certain types of weapons, in particular small arms, then ammunition is purchased for them without fail. Or are there anyone for whom this is news?

        If the troops have at least five hundred rifles for this ammunition, then this is 200 rounds of ammunition per barrel. But the sniper must constantly train, otherwise he is no longer a sniper, but a "man with a gun", only a large one. And 200 rounds of ammunition should be fired once a day, excluding weekends and holidays.

      But not a fact. Could as part of cost optimization and military budget savings, decide that since the KK snipers are made under the 12,7 x 108 cartridge, then they need to be fed with the gross cartridge from the tank ZPU. smile

      However, the tender of our Moscow Region for the purchase of sniper exotics (in the sense of exotics for our aircraft) - all kinds of Lapua and CheyTac would be more interesting. It would be very interesting to know who would win such a tender. smile

    Nothing confused with commas? Cool 145 grams even for 12,7 mm
    Come like Abrams from unenriched uranium?

    this cartridge is used in Russian rifles OSV-96 and ASVK.

    Surround Idlib with snipers with these toys and let them sit, they shoot the women for days and nights.

    Auction? What the? Conduct a contest or tender. Auction is a price increase. Mockery?

    The author somehow did not very clearly describe the cartridge, or rather, many had the impression that the weight of the bullet is 145 grams. But this is the whole cartridge. Here is the data on the cartridge for OSV-96:
    Features:
    Cartridge weight, g: 124-134 (147 for sniper)
    Cartridge Length, mm: 147,5
    Real bullet caliber, mm: 13,01
    Bullet weight, g: 48,3 (B-32); 55,3 (BS-41); 59,2 (sniper).

    Something the author confuses. The usual weight of a bullet cartridge 12.7x108 is in the region of 50 gr. 145 gr is probably a bit much!
