.408 Chey-tac

The .408 Chey-tac is a relatively new cartridge, purpose-designed for long-range sniper and anti-material work. It provides effective range close to 2 000 meters, and can be used against human and material targets alike. The only weapons to fire this ammunition are specially built precision rifles, usually bolt-action repeaters (although one or two semi-automatics also exist in this caliber). This cartridge is in limited use with elite counter-terrorism and VIP protection units in several countries across the world.
