History The origins of the anti-materiel rifle go back to the First World War, during which the first anti-tank rifles appeared.

While modern tanks and most other armored vehicles are too well protected to be affected by anti-materiel rifles, the guns are still effective for attacking unarmored or lightly armored vehicles. They can also be used against stationary enemy aircraft, missile launchers, radar equipment, small watercraft, communications equipment, crew served weapons and similar targets. Their value is in being able to precisely target and disable enemy assets from long range for a relatively low cost.

Despite having been designed to be used against equipment, Anti-materiel rifles have also been used for killing soldiers from distances that are beyond the effective internationa, Precision is a description of random errors, a measure of statistical variability. Accuracy has two definitions: More commonly, it is a description of systematic errors, a measure of statistical bias; as these cause a difference between a result and a “true” value, ISO calls this imternational.

Alternatively, ISO defines accuracy as describing a combination of both types of observational error above random and systematicso high accuracy requires both high precision and high trueness. In simplest internatlonal, given a set of data points from repeated measurements of the same quantity, the set can be said to be precise if the values are close to each other, while the set can be said to be accurate if their average is close to the true value of the quantity being measured.

In the first, more common definition above, the two concepts are independent of each other, so a particular set of data can be said to be either accurate, or precise, or both, or neither. Common technical definition Accuracy is innternational proximity This page is a listing of major precision rifle variants used by snipers from around the world.
