Military sniper rifles. With the further development of sniper rifle and ammunition design the future of sniping is always changing. Along with the obvious needs of accuracy and sufficient effective range, military use demands some other requirements. Military sniper rifles must not be too heavy, because a sniper often has to carry it for long hours, along with ammunition and other equipment. Military sniper rifles must be extremely reliable in any weather and climatic conditions and must withstand hundreds of rounds fired without proper cleaning and maintenance or any significant loss of accuracy.
