High tech shooting company Tracking Point has recently announced an addition to their lineup. The M400XHDJ is chambered in 300BLK and comes complete with the signature tracking/targeting system as well as second generation night vision.
Pushing $7K, the barrier to entry for this hardware is steep. And, not being a long range shooter or ever having pulled a trigger on a Tracking Point equipped firearm, I may be way out of line when I say I am still slightly skeptical of a system designed to adapt to a variety of variables. Maybe someone with some firsthand experience can chime in down below.
Still, the sci-fi geek, techie and shooter in me wants companies like Tracking Point to succeed.
The Cool Kid Caliber is Back
Back by popular demand, the .300 BlackOut returns in our latest design yet- the M400XHDR. Packing the serious knockdown power of the .30 caliber round, the Gen-2 Night Vision-enabled M400, ensures precision shots on predators and hogs alike – day or night. The M400’s precision guided system features a 400-yard lock range and is engineered for compatibility with (3) different ammunition profiles, all on a customized lightweight AR platform. Dropped, submerged and subjected to Mothers Nature’s worst, the M400 elevates your shooting skills no matter where you choose to go. And at $6,995, the full scope of TrackingPoint’s precision guided firearm system provides features and benefits the competition just can’t match.
Pflugerville, TX (February 14, 2017) The exceptionally popular .300 Blackout returns to TrackingPoint’s stable of Precision-Guided Firearmsä in the form of its latest design – the M400XHDR. Built on TrackingPoint’s own lightweight AR platform, the Gen-2 night vision-enabled M400XHDR features an extended 400-yard lock range and the stopping power of a .30 caliber, making it ideal for home defense, predator and varmint control. The simplicity and the familiarity of the AR-15 platform coupled with TrackingPoint’s patented lock-and-load precision guiding technology makes the M400XHDR the most innovative .300 BLK on the market today.
The M400XHDR shares many of the same standard technological advances present across the TrackingPoint lineup of Precision-Guided Firearms. Elements such as the RapidLokä Trigger System that ensures pinpoint accuracy by acquiring, tracking and locking on ranged targets and TrackingPoint’s video/audio capture capability that allows shooters/hunters the ability to record each memorable PGFä experience. Broadcast capability, via the onboard WiFi, allows friends and family to live each event as if they were right alongside you.
The same five (5) extensively tested and proven optical modes found on every TrackingPoint PGF power the M400 system. Precision Target and Precision Mover calculate the ballistic and firing solutions for the shooter, delivering exceptional accuracy on both stationary and moving targets alike. Auto-Acquire mode snaps the reticle to the pre-determined center of mass of a tagged target, while the Suppressive Fire mode calculates and holds real time ballistic solutions coupled with a live trigger to quickly engage multiple targets. But the final mode, Night Mode, is where the M400XHDR truly shines. Utilizing CMOS sensor technology to deliver Gen-2 night vision performance, when used with the rail-mounted IR illuminator that comes standard with every M400XHDR, the M400 system acquires and tracks targets after dark as easily as it does in the daylight, ensuring precision shots on predators and hogs alike – day or night.
Precision shots require precision ammunition, and the new M400XHDR features engineered compatibility for not one, not two, but three ammunition profiles. The custom loaded TP 300 AAC Blackout 120gr OTM for the target shooters, TP 300 AAC Blackout 120gr Tac-TX for the hunters, or a similar high quality 300 AAC Blackout 110gr should a shooter/hunter find themselves out of the 120 gr loads. And at $6,995, TrackingPoint’s Precision-Guided Firearm system delivers features and benefits the competition just can’t match, making the M400XHDR the perfect choice for precision-minded shooters everywhere.
