The A606 round is the current round of choice for sniper operations using the M107 or MK-15 weapons platforms.The A606 round was designed as an anti-materiel munitions, is not overly accurate (estimated 2 Minute of Angle), and is heavy (every two rounds weigh approximately a pound).(For example, the M107 weighs 36 pounds and 50 rounds of ammunition weigh 25 additional pounds for a total of 61 pounds).Additionally, USSOCOM needs a more accurate MK-211 like round that is non dud producing so that it can be fired on normal sniper ranges to improve shooting skills on one of the most difficult weapons platforms to employ due to the extreme long ranges the weapons are designed to engage.Current technologies such as polymer cased ammunition have shown documented accuracy enhancements over brass cases.Recent evaluations have determined that new industry partners have overcome the obstacles previously associated with polymer cased ammunition and can now produce highly reliable ammunition products that allow for the full realization of the technology.
