    Hate to be a nitpicker, but you need to be a tad more specific. What I mean is:

    Mosin 91-30, which variant? PE, PEM or PU?
    Lee Enfield, which variant? SMLE with doal occulars, SMLE with scope, or No.4Mk1(T)?
    Mauser, which variant? German WW1, German WW2, which mounting arrangement? Do you include other countries' variants?
    Ross - only one major sniper variant produced in WW1. Should we compare it to the other WW1 setups, or are you evaluating against WW2 guns with over 30 years of technological advancement over the Ross?
    Springfield - which variant? WW1 M1903, WW2 USMC M1903 or WW2 1903A4?

    The Ross could handle that evaluation. It was amazingly accurate out to 700 or so yards. It was the top sniper rifle in WWI. Also it had a 5.2x scope where most scopes in WWII were only 3 or 4 power.
