I believe the Gepard M6 is the best for that role. It has a Moa of 0.6 at 1.3km. It also has a large 114x14.5 mm round. I know that the Russian .50 round is already 25% more powerfull than the .50 BMG. So that round would be the fear of anyone inside a APC.

Actually to come of think of it i do not know allot of ATM rifles in use. I would like to see this thread also turn into a thread about ATM's in general.

I would say the XM-109. 25mm sniper rifle cannon with a scope.

HOw about a small UAV armed with a sniper gun ? Would pose some digital callibration issues since the UAV moves, but on the pro-side, since you shoot down from above, gravity works for you to enhance range/terminal velocity.

As far as I understand this is more of a Grenade Launcher, so not a Anti Material Rifle in the traditional sense...

I know of these Anti-Material and Special Purpose scoped rifles:

M82A1/A2/A3, the most famous Anti-Material Rifle, .50BMG
XM107, Lightweight version of the Barrett
XM109, the 25mm version

OSV-98 12.7mm Anti-Material rifle
Some others have been made too but this was one of the few that was actively used.

Gepard series, ranging from .50 NATO to 14.5mm Russian.

South Africa
NTW-20 super caliber 20mm Cannon

Ofcourse there are many more, some can be seen on:

Which is the best? I'd personally go with a Barrett since it effectively reduces recoil to an acceptable level comparable to a 12ga...

I'd rather kill someone when he still in his apc so a gepard m6 should do better than a Barret.
