.50 Caliber Sniper Elite

Ball and Armor-Piercing Ammunition

The Sniper Elite® 0.50 caliber (12.7mm) Ball and AP (Armor-Piercing) family of ammunition increased accuracy over traditional Ball and AP cartridges. This family of ammunition is compatible with all common sniper rifles and produces a recoil similar to that of an M33 ball cartridge.

Sniper Elite® Ball and AP cartridges are an interchangeable, ballistically-matched sniper family. Both cartridges have a trajectory and mean point of impact at 1,000 m (1,094 yds.)

The projectile design of the Sniper Elite® Ball and AP cartridges was optimized and all components are produced with very tight tolerances, for greater accuracy. This ammunition has an average radius dispersion of approximately 0.85 MOA (Minute of Angle,) at 1,000 m (1,094 yds.)

The Sniper Elite® Ball and AP cartridges provide low target dispersion at long ranges providing greater accuracy on target.

The Sniper Elite® Ball cartridge is available with spotter-flash-on-impact tracer option (known as TPS.) The Sniper Elite® AP cartridge is also available with an optional incendiary function (API.) In all, four projectile configurations are available.

  • Low recoil, noise and muzzle flash
  • Extremely low cartridge case extraction force
  • Bright flash upon target impact with Sniper Elite® TPS Ball cartridges, allowing clear identification of the impact area
  • Sniper Elite® API cartridges will defeat strategic targets at long ranges (22 mm armor plate at 400 m)
  • The seamless transition from the Sniper Elite® Ball to AP allows economical training with Ball, while maintaining operational readiness with AP
  • Non-toxic bullets eliminate environmental soil contamination
  • Sniper Elite® Ball and AP Projectiles available in 4 Configurations
