The original M40 was a

The original M40 was a direct adaptation of the Remington 700/40XB match-grade target rifle fitted with a Redfield 3-9x accu-range variable power scope, and chambered to fire the NATO 7.62mm cartridge (.308 Winchester.)

The M40A1 saw the introduction of the McMillan fiberglass stock and replaced the Redfield scope and mounting ring set with a 10x scope custom built for the Marine Corps by Unertl. The M40A3 replaces the original McMillan fiberglass stock with the newer McMillan A4 model, which incorporates adjustable length of pull and cheek pad. The original trigger and Unertl base assembly has been replaced by ones custom built by D. D. Ross, while the Unertl scope mounting rings have been replaced by ones manufactured by G &G Machine. The A3 also incorporates a Harris bipod and accessory rail, which is also manufactured by G &G Machine.

Though the M40 series rifles are capable of firing any NATO 7.62mm (.308 Winchester) round, the Marine Corps has developed the M118LR cartridge for sniping applications
The original M40 was a direct adaptation of the Remington 700/40XB match-grade target rifle fitted with a Redfield 3-9x accu-range variable power scope, and chambered to fire the NATO 7.62mm cartridge (.308 Winchester.)

The M24 Sniper Weapon System is a bolt-action rifle chambered to fire 7.62mm NATO (currently either the M118 Special Ball Cartridge or the M852 Match Cartridge, though it can fire any standard NATO 7.62mm cartridge.) The Kevlar-reinforced fiberglass stock is custom built by HS Precision and incorporates an adjustable cheek pad and as well as an adjustable pad on the butt stock to adjust length of pull. The 24" barrel is bolted to the full-length aluminum bedding block in the stock to reduce vibration and loss of zero. The scope is a Leupold & Stevens Mk. IV M3A day telescope and is mounted on the rifle using Mk. IV rings and base.

I see that you can copy and paste, but you didn't answer the question. the M40 has a short action... it can only be chambered for rounds up to 7.62 NATO. The M24 has a long action and can be chambered for 7.62, 7mm, and .300wm. Just a little "sniper" IQ test.

That's just naive. And another question. You look at the bottom of the page and it always says something like, 'Currently active members: 1420 (11 members and 1409 guests)'

Surely that cannot be accurate. where is that number coming from. Are you telling me that any given time there are more than a thousand lurkers on this site compared to a dozen members? Or is his server's Linux distro hosed more than they know?

is impervious to mere bullets. They will flatten into discs of mere metal and slide to the floor in shame. Meanwhile the sniper's toy weapon will melt in his hands like butter on a hot griddle and he will be running as fast as he is able with wide eyes and soiled pants to find shelter, a shower, and new clothing. Let us have no more talk of useless attacks against the Sith Lord, for it is treasonous and will be dealt with accordingly. I have heretofore been magnaminous in my tolerance of such silly, ignorant talk, but I have reached my limit. That is all. This is CNN.

M40

I thought the original M40 was based on the Winchester model 70, whereas the M24 was based on the Remington 700. Well, goes to show how much I know. Gues I'll have to stick with entering and clearing rooms and leave the longarm guys to laying on their bellies watching it all.

No the M40 and the M24 are both Remington 700 40X's action. The Corp did use the Winchester 70 in Nam but it was not an offical rifle for the Corp. They just got ahold of any good hunting rifle they could use at the time. It is fun to study to see what and went the rifles were used at the time.

I'm sure he's face palming about now.
BTW, if you want to know ANYTHING about snipers or their gear be sure and ask anonymous. He seems to be well trained and versed in the google fu and copy paste.
