    No, it doesn't.

    The Mosin, Mauser, Enfield, M1 Grand, and Springfield A3's were all used as "sniper rifles" at one time or another. Heck, even a Italian Carcano was used to shoot president Kennedy. That doesn't make them a "sniper rifle" by any stretch of the imagination when compared to today's dedicated precision weapon systems.

    I don't know but I would guess a Mosin/Mauser would be reliable shooting a 2/3 IPSC steel target at 500 yards. Naturally that's dependent on who's squeezing the trigger.

    BTW, nobody uses the term "sniper rifle" now-a-days. A sniper or Scout Sniper is a person who is generally trained through the military or maybe law enforcement. In the Marine Corps they have a Military Occupational Specialty (MOS, think job) of 0317 or formally 8541.
