Once you get to these large-frame guns bolt-action bullpup is the way to go especially as these days everyone is using suppressors (add cca 30cm in lenght) and rifles become lances ,but at present, there is no off the shelf rifle specifically for Cheytac , most are 50BMG rifles that offer a conversion kit for Cheytac 

As Snipers cover much more distance on foot than any other soldier with more gear and often need to stalk for some distance which is very energy intensive the most important factor for a sniper rifle ,given all other things are equal , is weight, so would take Voere X3 over DT  HTI

Desert tactical HTI is about 1kg heavier as its a 50BMG-sized action, while Voere X3 is sized so that Cheytac is maximum it will take .

Cheytac magazine for  Desert Tech HTI ,  HTI action is sized to handle 50BMG

X4 is a kilogram heavier than X3 , X4 looks like a full-sized 50Bmg action  , will check on IWA if its any smaller than X5 , i dont see much difference in receiver size between x4 and x5

Bigger, heavier receivers last longer, and suck more heat away from the barrel. That's official Elbonian design doctrine.

Voere was not present on the IWA this year,  only a small showing of the new Victor Ram700 footprint action at Hera arms booth. All in all post-pandemic IWA was missing many regular exhibitors. Was probably the first time i could have done a single-day visit. But of course, still a lot of walking around My phone step counter put me at 18km covered on IWA floor on day one.

I appreciate the humour, but that hat just creeps me out too much ...
