Author Todd Burgreen gets his hands on CZ’s 550 Magnum H.E.T. to provide readers with a close-up of a half-MOA tactical sniping rifle. The H.E.T. is a modern rendition of the classic Mauser action in a long-range tactical form that puts .338 Lapua Mag takedown power in the hands of marksmen. Burgreen writes, “Note that the .338 Lapua Mag is clearly superior to the 7.62mm NATO for long-range personnel interdiction because of better ballistics and downrange energy. In the same vein, as a sniping weapon the H.E.T. is better than a rifle in .50 BMG because of the .338 Lapua Mag’s portability and similar ballistics without the .50 BMG’s blast signature and weight.” To learn more, check out the June 2013 issue of Special Weapons for Military & Police, available on newsstands and digitally on May 14, 2013.
