TrackingPoint Debuts Its Latest .300 BLACKOUT Rifle – the M400XHDR

Friday, February 17th, 2017

TrackingPoint_M400XHDR

Pflugerville, TX (February 14, 2017) The exceptionally popular .300 Blackout returns to TrackingPoint’s stable of Precision-Guided Firearms 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 RapidLok 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 PGF 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.

Order your new M400XHDR directly from TrackingPoint by calling (512) 354-2114 or by visiting the M400 product page. Shipments of the new rifle begin late February and financing is available for qualified buyers, with payments as low as $177/month for up to 48 months.

TrackingPoint & Taya Kyle Unite For First-Ever $1M American Sniper Shootout

Wife of American Sniper Takes on World-Renowned Shooting Champion for $1 Million to Benefit Chris Kyle Frog Foundation

Mason, Texas (October 27, 2015) – Billed as the shootout of the century, Taya Kyle will use TrackingPoint’s Precision-Guided Firearms to take on a world-renowned champion shooter in the inaugural American Sniper Shootout. If the champ wins against Taya and the TrackingPoint system, he will take home the $ 1 million prize.

The landmark event is set for Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015 in Mason, Texas, with proceeds benefiting the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. Sponsors are already planning to make the American Sniper Shootout an annual event.

The American Sniper Shootout is the first of its kind to pit a novice shooter armed with the TrackingPoint system against the best in the world in a head-to-head competition featuring the types of shots routinely encountered by soldiers in battle. TrackingPoint’s Precision-Guided Firearms instantly transform inexperienced shooters into world-class marksmen, and the competition will validate the claim, staking $1 million on Taya out-shooting the champion.

“I am a novice shooter,” said Taya Kyle, wife of Chris Kyle, the most prolific sniper in American history. “When I shoot TrackingPoint guns, I feel Chris’s spirit in my hands. Chris would be proud to know that every soldier now has the power to dominate any adversary, and it’s even better that this event benefits military service men and women, veterans, first responders and their families through the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.”

Chris Kyle had an early influence on the development of TrackingPoint guns. In a chance encounter with the American Sniper in 2009, TrackingPoint Founder and CEO John McHale and Kyle explored the nuances of precision shooting and the possibility of building a gun that would change the face of war.

“Chris and I went back-and-forth on how to make everyone an extraordinary shot,” said McHale. “We were both excited, realizing it was entirely possible to give our troops insurmountable squad-overmatch capability. We knew we were on to a world-changing idea. That was the day TrackingPoint was born.”

“We want people to know that TrackingPoint Precision-Guided firearms can save our soldiers’ lives and protect our nation,” said McHale. “And, this event is also designed to let our enemies know what’s in store for them when they come up against American forces.”

McHale expects a fierce battle. “The TrackingPoint system enables even inexperienced shooters to make incredible shots that most would think impossible, rivaling the best marksmen in the world,” he said. “The champion who steps up to take this challenge may have met their match this time. Taya and TrackingPoint are a powerful combination.”

The American Sniper Shootout is comprised of a series of shots at unknown distances on static and moving targets. Shooting positions include prone, off-hand and blind shots in which the shooter is completely hidden and unable to directly see targets. Scoring is weighted based on degree of difficulty.

The day-long event in Mason is open to the public and includes a music festival featuring the Scooter Brown Band and their hard-driving country from warriors who served our country; and Donica Knight, a rising country star with pure southern style.

TrackingPoint is expanding into the semi-auto realm with the new TrackingPoint 500 Series ARs, announced for 2014. Built upon the Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 (an excellent rifle platform that I own), the TrackingPoint AR utilizes the same Tag Track Xact technology as the bolt-action rifle scopes, but in a smaller frame. This allows the shooter to make marked shots on targets while moving at speeds up to 10 mph out to 500 yards and utilize 2-12x magnification. Because of the integrated nature of the TrackingPoint system, it will only be available as a complete rifle w/ scope.
