Muscle is the only way to describe the Anzio Ironworks 20 mm sniper rifle. Yes, the 50 BMG (roughly 13 mm) can reach out to a mile or a mile and a half, but what do you do when the target is farther away – say two or three miles – or even bigger?
20 mm cartridges have an outside shell diameter and inside barrel diameter of 0.79 inches (20 mm). Projectiles or shells are typically 75–127 mm (3–5 in) long. Cartridges are typically 75–152 mm (3–6 in) long. Many but not all 20 mm shells have an explosive filling and detonating fuze.
Though the 20 mm round is more commonly found with aircraft cannons or (in an earlier age) as air defense artillery, there is no rule that it can’t be used for other applications.
