    Default Barrett 25MM sniper rifle!!!

    So i was watching the outdoor channel yesterday and i think it was on shooting gallery. Anyways they were talking about barrett firearms and they apparently have a new upper receiver forthe M107A1 that is chambered to fire a 25mm cannon cartridge. The round itself weighs about 4oz's and leaves the muzzle at 1400 fps. at 2000 meters it can go through 3inches of steel . also they added multiple hydraulic buffers to absod some of the recoil.......... They also talked about the newer 416 round they developed. its a 400gr projectile that flies at 3300fps and is effective and more accurate than the 50bmg at ranges of like 2000 meters but is more suited to soft targets i would imagine. Anyways didnt know if anyone else had seen it or heard anything about it. Thought it was interesting none the less and couldnt imagine what shooting a 25mm cartridge would be like.

    That would have the same amount of energy as a .223 for sure

    50 cal is 12.7mm. So this 25mm is for arguments sake 2 times the size of a 50 cal. That's awesome, but I don't want to shoot that one. At least not from a shoulder fired weapon.

    There's a vid on youtube of a kid firing a 20mm. That's plenty enough...

    i think the rifle you are talking about is the barrett xm109 payload rifle it fires a 25X59mm. i could be wrong i know i would hate to be the person that shoots a 25mm auto cannon round.

    I don't know how you could hit anything at 2000m with a projectile going only 1400 fps at the muzzle. The bullet would be falling on the target. You'd be aiming hundreds of feet high.

    Piece that big needs its own TFT...
    The 22" cannon accepted balls that weighed about 350 lb; the Mons Meg could only be fired 8-10 times a day due to the tremendous heat generated by the powder charge required.

    IN my humble opinion, it might actually make a pretty good hog gun....

    i bet that would obliterate a hog lol. id see it more for like a rhino hunt or somethin in africa.

    And about it being able to go out to 2000 meters thats a good question. What kinda velocity does a .50 usually carry. imsure its more than 1400fps but maybe they were just making a statement as to the amount of energy that projectile is able to deliver.

    Good lord, that thing practically fires other sniper rifles at people with the size of the round.

    Ought to make quick work of just about anything unfortunate enough to be on the business end of it. I have to say I'm curious to know what's too big for a .50 and yet too small for a friggin' artillery strike.

    Kinda surprised at the muzzle velocity. I thought it would be higher.

    Cartridge 25 x 59 mm
    Action Semi-Automatic
    Muzzle velocity 425 m/s (1,390 ft/s)[1]
    Effective range 2,000 m (1.2 mi) [1]
    Maximum range 3,600 m (2.2 mi) [1]
    Feed system 5-round detachable box magazine


    Gotta be a pretty big arch to rain in at 2000m.
