The FD-200 FAMAE

This is a very interesting and very effective medium range sniper/dm rifle from Chile.

The FAMAE FD-200 is a semi automatic designated marksman rifle of Chilean origin and is chambered in the 7.62x51mm NATO round. It saw a very limited production run in the early 2000s, and was based upon their license-made SIG SG 540 assault rifle action and frame, although all mechanics were house-manufactured to be permanently semi-automatic in nature, furniture was wooden, featured scope attachment points and an "accurized" barrel. The FD-200 saw some civilian sales, but none outside of its home country. (source Wikipedia)

These stats are not from Wiki, but instead they are from Gunpedia, which in the past have proven many times to be reliable about details and statistics and specs.

Notable for rather longer range than many .308 caliber rifles due to the extremely long barrel and the use of M118LR ammo. It is officially ranged to 1 MOA at 1100 meter by the Chilean Army Command and the manufacturer.
