Next Caliber For The Tracking Point?

TrackingPoint is polling the public to help them decide on the next caliber/action they should adopt for their smart rifle scope system. Right now they only have a bolt action rifle chambered in .300 Win Mag and .300 LM.

Personally I think it is a no brainer: an AR-10 chambered in .308 Winchester. They must surely have one of these in development for military and law enforcement..

      Actually a product improved SVD retrofitted for this would be pretty badass. How invoveled are these modifications anyway because aftermarket “dust covers” and upper receivers with this system pre installed or integrated into the construction of the part would seem cheaper and more marketable. So it’s not “buy this top heavy and less adaptable precision rifle with a limited battery life from us” but instead “buy the latest precision aftermarket part just swipe your credit card you will suddenly become a world class sniper”

    Well +10 for AR-10, would the moderate difference between 7.62×51 and .308 Winchester necessitate another adaptation of the system? I understand that that this has limited military applications excessive weight rather fragile all that jazz but not everyone knows that so if you offered it in a common military cartridge you could sell more than the 5 your going to sell as it stands in fact if you got the right fish on the hook you could sell thousands tyrants love super weapons. There issue right now is that serious shooters can use the current optics to the same effect whereas the rest of your perspective buyers aren’t willing to spend that much money

    How about a long-action AR in .30-06, .300WM, .338LM/.300LM, and/or .338NM/.300NM?

    I want one in .300NM.

  • Guest

    I want them to make a .300LM AR.

    But which .308 Win loading? There is a great variety of bullet weights and types available, with very different trajectories. Even if you stick with 7.62×51 military loads you still have a choice between 147 grain M80 ball and 175 grain M118 sniper loading.

      Each rifle model from TrackingPoint has been designed for a specific proprietary load from Barnes. It is safe to assume that future models from TrackingPoint will also be designed for proprietary loads.

      “The XS1 uses 300 gr. Sierra™ Open-Tipped Match XactShot™ ammunition by Barnes®, loaded to +/- 10 fps standard deviation muzzle velocity.”

      “The XS2 uses 220 gr. Sierra™ Open-Tipped Match XactShot™ ammunition by Barnes®, loaded to +/- 10 fps standard deviation muzzle velocity.”

      “The XS3 precision hunting rifle uses 190 gr. LRX XactShot™ ammunition by Barnes®, loaded to +/- 10 fps standard deviation muzzle velocity.”

    I like the Idea of the A.R 10, but Personally I want It in in .30-06. either with a 168 or 180 grain load.
