    There is a lot of caliber discussion going on here lately and a lot of trivia, so to keep up with the times... Which .40 caliber round is used in specialty sniper rifles, costs ~$7.00 a round and comes with 305gr and 419gr projectiles? To my knowledge it isn't available to the general public...yet!

    Its either the 408 Cheytac or the 416 Barret

      Whoops, I submitted to fast. I also wanted to mention that I would imagine both are currently being used.

        I was going to suggest the .416 Barrett. I wasn't even aware of the .408 Cheytac!

          Run of the mill standard ammo that used to be readily available still isn't currently available to the general public. Yet, when it finally once again is I fear the price will be close to $7.00 a round. A lot more change than I ever hoped for.

            I think the .408 Cheyenne Tactical is based on the .400 Taylor Magnum, so that's a "twofer."

              Looks like Krusty hit the bull!
              The .408 Cheyenne Tactical (Cheytac) was designed to offer .50BMG performance in a package not much bigger or much more punishing than the .338 Lapua Magnum.
              While the rounds do cost $7.00 each I would imagine that with a rifle you can actually carry without the help of a forklift, that offers similar ballistics to the .50BMG it would make a fearsome weapon.
              Moose anyone?
              Oh ED, don't worry about not knowing about it, it hasn't made much news; in fact I only heard a small blip about it from a news report years back, the only thing I remembered from the report was that it was a .408 caliber the rest was research. Now if I can only find a dealer that is not wearing a uniform!

                I would have guessed a 405W necked down on a 50Cal Brass....+ 1 msp18
