I've played through the game once and on my 2nd go, so I have at best average knowledge of the game, but I hardly use any mods outside of repair.
I have had big problems finding ammo for some of the more effective weapons in the game. The 2 traders (the main guys, at least the ones I know of) and the guy in the freedom base only carry a few kinds of ammo.
Like for example, Max's sniper rifle, where can I buy ammo for that? Or do I just have to hope I run into a baddie who carries that ammo?
Is there a mod which helps solve this issue

Sniper rifles use very rare ammo. I don't know who sells it (if anyone) but you could find some ammo in the Red Forest and the levels beyond.
There are more traders btw: Sidorovich (your first contact in the game), Barkeep, a Duty guy in the bar, Skinflint at Freedom HQ and the Scientist in the bunker at Yantar.
There are many mods that change the trader supplies. Most of them unlock everything at the traders, which ruins the game in my opinion.
You could also try by yourself but it might be a bit confusing if you never modded anything. http://forums.filefront.com/s-t-l-k-e-r-soc-modding-editing/362105-tutorial-how-edit-trader-files.html
Yea, I agree with you about some of the modding ruining the game.
You have any idea where I can find the ammo for that particular rifle? The few bullets that it had made me believe it's easily the most effective long range weapon in the game that can be gotten that early.

The guys in the tower in the freedom bases have those snipers, they also have "lunchboxes" that contain ammo. I believe that they contain sniper ammo. Also the snipers in red forest have that ammo. But I don't use those snipers, I prefer vintar (you can find it in the freedom base). It's the most accurate weapon in stalker and is deadly and there plenty ammo.

That the one with the 10 shots, silenced, and can shoot automatic too? The one found in the building at the Freedom base next to the fallen tree?
If so, I really like that one too, but the range on that things is horrible. You actually have to aim high because the bullet's velocity is so low. Plus I find it that Max's rifle always gets 1 shot kills to the upper body, this one not always.

Yeah but those rifles aren't accurate enough. Aiming higher with vintar isn't a big problemm. I noticed that you can buy the ammo for the snipers in Oblivion Lost.
