SOCOM Is Looking For A New Multi-Caliber Sniper Rifle | Task & Purpose

On April 6, U.S. Special Operations Command released a sources sought notice asking for companies who are capable of producing the next generation of sniper rifles.

In a significant departure from traditional sniper rifles in the military inventory, the new Advanced Sniper Rifle would need to be capable of shooting 7.62 NATO, .300NM, and 338NM with the use of a conversion kit. It also needs to be extremely accurate, with the desired outcome being a rifle that can hit .5 Minute of Angle (MOA) at 300 meters for the 7.62 and .300, and 1.5 MOA at 300 meters for the .338.
