INTERVENTION™: The Rifle The CheyTac
®
INTERVENTION™ is a 7 shotrepeating, takedown rifle system. The barrel isremovable and replaceable by the operator. In fact,the entire rifle is maintainable at the operator level –including complete tear down. Spare barrels can bemaintained at the unit level and replacement can bemade in the field, allowing for special barrel designand shorter barrels. The takedown capabilitiesprovides the only safe rifle which supports all methodsof infiltration; including military free-fall, static line,small boat, dive lockout as well as all other forms of infiltration.2.

Cartridge: The AmmunitionThe CheyTac

Cartridge was developed to fill the gapbetween the 338 Lapua andthe .50 BMG, yet thedownrange characteristicsoutperform the best .50BMG projectiles. The projectiles are manufactured by LostRiver Ballistic Technologies™ and are designed usingPRODAS software. The projectiles are CNC, lathe turned,projectiles of a copper/nickel alloy. The 419grain projectile hasa supersonic range of 2200 yards+ at standard air conditions. A second projectile is available - the 305grain projectile isdesigned for a high velocity near range application. Theaverage ballistic co-efficient of the 419 projectile is .945 over3500 meters.

with a handheld computer. Thecomputer calculates and provides theoperator with elevation and windagesettings. The current platform is a Casio IT-70 using input from a Kestrel 4000 and aVector Laser Rangefinder; other options include the Mil Spec, Talla-Tech R-PDA as aprimary platform for the ABC.The following variables are programmed into the computer:
°
 
Slant angle from rifle to the target.
°
 
Correction for air temperature.
°
 
Correction for air pressure.
°
 
Correction for ammunitiontemperature, powder burn rate, andmuzzle velocity.
°
 
Correction for rifle barrel twist rate.
°
 
Correction for the spin of the earth(Coriolis). Operator inputs thelatitude on the globe and direction of fire from true north.
°
 
The operator can input correctionsbased on his differences from thecomputer fire solution to the solutionthat strikes the target

°
 
The operator can also input variablesto compensate for gunlock times and operator reaction times for engagingmoving targets.
°
 
The computer is also programmed with all current US Sniping Cartridges from5.56mm to .50 Caliber along with numerous other long range rounds. Thismakes it usable for sniper teams at all organizations and weapons systems.

This is usually caused when one shooter holds the rifle different from another shooter. At times, differentholds induce a “gun jump” that can add elevation and / or windage to a suggested sight setting. This inputallows different members of a sniper team to use the same computer.
