CheyTac

® Long Range Rifle System

 

The basis of the CHEYTAC

® Long Range Rifle System is the CheyTac®


INTERVENTION™ rifle and the CheyTac

® Cartridge, a proprietary cartridge

 

developed by the company. In testing, the system has proven to be capable of soft target

 

interdiction to ranges of 2500 yards. While conceived as simply a rifle – the CheyTac

®


INTERVENTION™ has developed into a total system package. CheyTac

® system

 

consists of the following sub-components:

 

1. C heyTac

® INTERVENTION™: The Rifle

 

The CheyTac

® INTERVENTION™ is a 7 shot

 

repeating, takedown rifle system. The barrel is

 

removable and replaceable by the operator. In fact,

 

the entire rifle is maintainable at the operator level –

 

including complete tear down. Spare barrels can be

 

maintained at the unit level and replacement can be

 

made in the field, allowing for special barrel design

 

and shorter barrels. The takedown capabilities

 

provides the only safe rifle which supports all methods

 

of infiltration; including military free-fall, static line,

 

small boat, dive lockout as well as all other forms of

 

infiltration.

 

2. . 4 08 CheyTac

® Cartridge: The Ammunition

 

The CheyTac

® Cartridge

 

was developed to fill the gap

 

between the 338 Lapua and

 

the .50 BMG, yet the

 

downrange characteristics

 

outperform the best .50

 

BMG projectiles. The projectiles are manufactured by Lost

 

River Ballistic Technologies™ and are designed using

 

PRODAS software. The projectiles are CNC, lathe turned,

 

projectiles of a copper/nickel alloy. The 419grain projectile has

 

a supersonic range of 2200 yards+ at standard air conditions. A

 

second projectile is available - the 305grain projectile is

 

designed for a high velocity near range application. The

 

average ballistic co-efficient of the 419 projectile is .945 over

 

3500 meters.
