This is what I'm aiming for, I surly want to be MM because it's the most fun for me because it's so tricky.

My goal is to have max. single target burst damage.

Any thoughts?

I was able to lower ambush activate to 1 second with sniper volley, alacrity skill and target acquired. Can you imagine what a great potential this has?

Yes, but thing is, ambush has quite a long CD and with target aquired it's tricky to time it that you will have ambush actually ready for that. That's why I have only one point there, because often happens to me that ambush is on CD when I got TA.

you shoot ambush when Reactive Shot will trigger, so things like 2 points in Reactive Shoot + Rapid Fire are must for MM

Stroke of Genius is pointless because you have Snap Shot, i don't like Heavy Shoot either

so mine will look like this:

No, it isn't.

Marksman's DPS disgusts me.

http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#400bsrbdRsRGoZbfZh.1 Stroke of genius is pretty not good for MM. This will give you the highest controlled single target burst possible. W/ sniper volly up SoS can be on a near 1 second cast timer with target acquired. Even without that TA + RF will get you more damage than 1 extra point in explosive engineering ever will.

You can put points into leg shot as well for when u need it, I do that sometimes.

Yeah many people dislike rapid fire but if you use in combination with TA you get a period of the highest DPS that sniper can do. TA + SoS - RF - SoS - SoS. PvE wise your only delaying FT by 4s or so and its worth it and for PvP id be impressed when someone can survive 1-2k damage per half second for 6s unless they have guard and some pretty good dedicated heals

Rapid fire is amazing, i love it. A reduced CD could make it better but still very much worth the point.

Thx, I'm gonna go for it, especially that triple SoS combo seems powerful since it ticks for 1300+ for me

Reduced CD wouldn't do a whole lot as its only really worth it if you save it for TA + relics which are both 2min cooldowns anyway.
Outside of that keeping a standard FT every 6s rotation is better
