How come every rifle with a scope and bipod is a "sniper rifle"?

ohhh okay yea your right.. your right! so if you took that scope and bipod off, it would be just a bolt action "rifle".. it would probably even be a pretty useful rifle with some irons on there or a red dot!!... the point of that rifle is to "snipe"..., hence maybe calling it a "sniper rifle"?..are you kidding me dude? jesus..

A snipe is any of about 25 wading bird species in three genera in the family Scolopacidae. They are characterized by a very long, slender bill and cryptic plumage.

Seems like over kill for a snipe :) I would love to have me a nice precision rifle, and its the first I've heard of them.
