H-S Precision HTR IDF Sniper Rifle

The IDF has finally began rolling out the new IDF Sniper Rifle. The H-S Precision HTR (Heavy Tactical Rifle) in .338 Lapua Magnum is being introduced to the IDF's snipers as a replacement for the IDF's current issue .50 Barett.

The IDF HTR comes with a 20x Scope, a ten round box magazine, adjustable stock and cheek rest, monopod and bipod.  The IDF HTR sports a camouflage teflon finish.The accessory picitinny rail is favorite feature in the IDF as it allows flexible customization via the addition of lots of accessories.

The .338 Lapua Magnum is considered an ideal military long-range anti-personnel cartridge. It fills the gap between weapons chambered for standard military rounds such as the 7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester) and large, weighty rifles firing the .50 BMG cartridge. It also offers a tolerable amount of barrel wear, which is important to military snipers who tend to fire thousands of rounds in practice every year to acquire and maintain expert long-range marksmanship.

The .338 Lapua is a dual-purpose anti-personnel and anti-material round; however, its anti-materiel potential is limited, due to the bullet's lower kinetic energy compared with that of the .50 BMG's 35.64 to 55.08 gram (550 to 850 grain) projectiles. The loaded cartridge is 14.93 mm (0.5878 in) in diameter (rim) and 93.5 mm long. 338 Lapua can penetrate better-than-standard military body armour at ranges up to 1,000 metres (1,094 yd) and has a maximum effective range of about 1,750 metres (1,910 yd). Muzzle velocity is dependent on load and powder temperature and varies from 880 to 915 m/s (2,900 to 3,000 ft/s) for commercial loads with 16.2 gram (250 grain) bullets, which results in about 6525 joules (4813 ft·lbf) of muzzle energy.

All of the IDF Snipers that I've talked to about the new IDF HTR Sniper rifle are impressed with it's design and love the way it shoots!

I'll get some more pictures from the field and follow up on this post soon.
