Can I use my MILSURP Sniper in a Class?

This question came in recently. I suspect it was prompted by the decision to get Freeze into a modern bolt action rifle for use out to longer ranges.  The first question that needs to be asked when something like this comes up is, “What is YOUR definition of long range?”.
