All short-action calibers have an MSRP of $2,295 while your long-action counterparts are $100 more at a retail price of $2,395.
Christensen Arms more thoroughly delved into the expansion of calibers in their new Modern Precision Rifle:
Building upon the successful launch of the Modern Precision Rifle, Christensen Arms has expanded the caliber offerings for the popular rifle. Beginning in January 2018, the Modern Precision Rifle will be offered in a long-action configuration with .300 Winchester Magnum, .300 Norma Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum available. Additionally, Christensen Arms has added the new 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge to the short-action lineup.
The Modern Precision Rifle was developed with a 100% proprietary chassis built with top-tier aerospace materials to optimize weight savings (16” .308 weighs under 7 lbs). It also includes an adjustable folding stock with a locking hinge mechanism, an oversized fluted bolt knob, and a black nitride coated bolt, receiver, and muzzle brake. The Modern Precision Rifle is built with an aerograde carbon fiber barrel, free-floating handguard, and adjustable comb; and is guaranteed to shoot sub MOA.
Christensen Arms also put a short advertising video together to give you a better conceptualization of what their rifle is like.
