Supply trucks. Helicopters on the ground. Ammo and fuel depots. Lots of soft targets that take a bigger than average cartridge to damage/destroy at longer ranges.

what would be the purpous....it wont defeat a IFV or similar vehicles....what would they target with this

Basically everything else; much of Ukraines tactics have been focusing on destroying of degrading long supply convoys of fuel trucks, artillery, and air defense vehicles. All of which could be targeted with a 14.5. A sniper could hide within ~1k of the a major road, and discretely damage / destroy high priority vehicles. 

Frankly this conflict may launch a resurgence in interest in the Anti Material rifle for defensive military use. 

In addition to Anti Material, a shocking  number of Russian Generals and officers have been killed, including at least one that was killed by a sniper at long range. Rumor is this kill was from 1.5km - emphasis on Rumor.

A rare video indeed: UA Tank killing a RU BMP in urban combat; one of the few tank videos of the war. Its a fantastic shot, taken through a blown up building.

Azov employing hand grenades in urban combat at the end of the video; another rare scene as you dont see that many hand grenade fights.
