    Not required, is it?

      flatter trajectory
      longer range
      higher speed

      the only down side is they're slightly more expensive to make but frankly any military that isn't Congo tire should be able to afford it

        at small masses APDS suck ass. also there is a 50% chance of the barrel exploding on you everytime you shoot

        fins are only required once you are at something like 10:1 L/D ratios, otherwise rifling works just fine

        No, they're drag-stabilized, they have lower range than a spin stabilized bullet. They're also less accurate. APFSDS is hyper min-maxed to penetrate armor at short distances.

    Fin-stabilized projectiles are deflected by wind a lot more than spin-stabilized projectiles. It's called the weathervane effective.

    Sabot rounds could introduce variables that affect precision, such as inconsistent sabot separation or aerodynamic instability. Long-range sniper rifles typically use specialized ammunition with high ballistic coefficients and engineered projectiles to achieve the required accuracy and performance without the need for sabots.

    Trajectory of larger munitions suffer greater impact from physical forces like wind. Bullets fired from a rifled barrel are optimal for negating these effects but past a certain point of size and range fins become very attractive.

    okay you dumb fricking Black person
    let me tell you this
    YOU DO WHAT WORKS
    "but why you no do thingy here"
    CUZ IT DON'T FRICKING WORK YOU DUMB NIG
    LITERAL BILLIONS HAVE BEEN SPENT
    DECADES, FRICKING DECADES, ITS ALL LEAD TO THIS
    ITS LEAD TO YOUR DUMB FRICKING ASS
    SAYING
    "why nut dis"
    THE FRICK YOU THINK NOT, Black person?
    SABOS ARE FOR LARGE CALIBER WEAPONS TO TURN THEM SMALL CALIBER
    THATS IT
    50/12 ISN'T SMALL
    IT FRICKING 50mm to 200mm
    YOU'RE JUST FRICKING moronic
    have a nice day NOW
    PLEASE

    I HATE YOU

    this has already been tried out in the past by the military
    it was concluded that its accuracy was even more affected by weather than a regular bullet to the point that even rain droplets would significantly change its trajectory this happened most likely due to its fins and way lower weight compared to your average bullet so it's more susceptible to changes in velocity and is a known fact
    also its fragmentation upon hitting a body wasnt favorable either
    all of this isnt a issue if your firing a heavy ass 120mm round with an entire FCS computer at your side while trying to pen the equivalent of 1m of steel which would produce plenty of shrapnel on its own

    There are a couple reasons why long-range sniper rifles don't typically use APDS rounds:

    **1. Spin vs. Fins:**

    * Regular sniper bullets rely on the rifling in the barrel to spin the bullet, which stabilizes it in flight.
    * APDS rounds use fins instead of spin. While this eliminates some inefficiencies, it's not a huge advantage at the ranges snipers typically operate in.

    **2. Projectile Design:**

    * APDS are designed for maximum armor penetration, using a dense, narrow penetrator core.
    * Sniper bullets need to be effective against targets besides heavily armored vehicles. They often have a larger bullet diameter to carry more material for fragmentation and better terminal ballistics.

    **3. Complexity:**

    * APDS rounds with their discarding sabot are more complex and expensive to manufacture compared to conventional sniper ammunition.

    **4. Barrel Compatibility:**

    * Sniper rifles are designed for the specific ballistics of their chosen ammunition. APDS would likely require a different barrel design to function properly.

    Overall, the advantages of APDS for long-range sniping are outweighed by the simplicity, effectiveness, and lower cost of conventional sniper ammunition.

    Because snipers don’t need to lob HEAT so they can use rifled barrels.
