How easy to guess SVDK SVD is an adaptation of a more effective ammo, but it does not mean that the adaptation was simple. The gun is a self-loading rifle with automatic running on the powder gases bled from the barrel, assembled in a traditional assembly. The butt of the rifle guns took SIDS, in other words, the emerging, but for all that it is dressed cushioning recoil pad with a larger area of contact with the shoulder shooter, for that would mitigate the effects of recoil when firing. The idea is to adapt SVD under powerful ammunition with little bloodshed has failed miserably. In fact, we had to create a virtually new instrument similar in design to the IRS, but it is calculated that not surprisingly, because the difference in ammunition in both rifles enormous. If you look at the instrument as a whole, it contains a recognizable SVD, but only in scale, which means that it invested a lot of work, because the automation system is only half the battle, but the well-honed and costed automation system — this is the finished product.
Substitution underwent trunk tools, bolt, one hundred percent whole system automation rifle. The barrel is attached to the receiver, with the fore-end is not connected, but due to the fact that in the weapon system automation is implemented through the removal of the barrel of powder gases svobodnovyveshennym did not even call it a stretch. In general, the accuracy of shooting significantly affects what forearm gun does not touch the barrel and bipod mounted on a forward control of the receiver-based, in other words also did not touch the gun barrel. Despite this high-precision tool it is difficult to call, because his effective range equals a total of 600 meters.
Small distance of the effective implementation of tools immediately justified by several factors, among which the first introduction of automation into the second, the thickness of the walls of the gun barrel, in my opinion missing, light weight rifles, finally chuck it all though but little effect on the accuracy of instruments, and in sum gives such is not the best outcome. On the other hand, we should not forget also what goals pursued designers, creating this rifle. A main objectives was the largest drop weight guns, for the ability to effectively defeat the enemy's manpower secure means of personal body armor. So Makarov, it appears that in comparison with other standards with similar traits and ammunition tool loses by 100%, but with all this with the puzzles that are set before him, sovladevaet completely successful. In addition, they say that by 1000 meters of this rifle to shoot entirely real, clenching his teeth, but real. That is so cheap here, severely, firmly and well, but the truth, without supplies, to perform more complex tasks than those that are put in front of the instrument.
The total length of the weapon with the buttstock is 1250 mm, with all the length of the rifle barrel equals 620 millimeters. The initial speed of a bullet fired from this barrel equals 780 meters per second. Weight of the rifle is 6.5 pounds unloaded. Powered weapon of detachable magazine capacity of 10 rounds 9,3 x64.
This cartridge in my opinion is a very exciting ammo. Fascinating story in it at first, because that way, which this cartridge made before adopting the army of, very long. It all started already in 1910, that's when Velgelm Brenneke made ammunition for 9,3 x64 Mauser rifle with a sliding shutter. Developed this cartridge purely as a powerful hunting Ammo and no army. The main rival of the bullets was 9.3 x62, which of course won this round, otherwise why it would create. Very long cartridge ammunition was a sweetheart who hunted large animals. Bruins shoot some ammunition that was a lot of, well, a lot of beasts in Africa killed this massive ordnance with the heavy bullet. Its popularity this cartridge saves and at the moment, and how many guns were fired at him variety of weapons-grade companies are countless.
In 1986, the son of the famous Russian designer Blum has developed a version of the cartridge back to the same hunt. A bullet cartridge weighed 17,3-17,5 grams, kinetic energy, as well as the speed varied not very large borders — 4760-5130 joules. One year later, was made the first batch of these munitions, but in mass creation they went a bit later.
In fact, on the basis of this cartridge was developed and ammunition for the sniper rifle. However, many believe that for the base took all the same not a Russian hunting ammo, and zabugorny, but will not be venturing dispute from scratch. One way or another civilian and military patron — is a variety of ammunition.
Bullet live ammunition 9,3 x64 has a weight of 16.6 grams, it is placed in a metal core. In the trunk SVDK this bullet is accelerated to nearly the speed of 800 meters per second, respectively, its kinetic energy is somewhere about 5000 joules. Munition is designed first for the effective destruction of the enemy, protected by means of personal body armor, also firing at non-armored vehicles. At a distance of 100 meters of bullet cartridge 9,3 x64 in 80% of the shots hit sheet steel of up to a centimeter.
In 2006, this cartridge was adopted for use in conjunction with a rifle SVDK. Designation of this munition was 9SN index 7N33.
So Makar, we can confidently state that SVDK and patron 9SN in any time can not be associated with a .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge and the instrument for him. And it is not because of Russian ammunition and a rifle at a disadvantage in this comparison, as well as in the design of our guns were laid requirements are not high-precision long-range sniper weapons, and completely different. You can often meet a negative outlook about this weapon, but that no one was blamed Glock pistol, because he can not hit a target at a distance of 1000 meters. So why then make claims that are pre-mentioned problems facing the gun?
Well, as this rifle is comparable to mnogokalibernym sniper complex with a small give-away action of the "exhaust", let them decide each to himself.
