TrackingPoint Debuts Its Latest .300 BLACKOUT Rifle – the 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.

    “…the stopping power of a .30 caliber.” Oh gawd.
    So much failure in less than a sentence. 300 Blackout is such a wrong choice for anything precision. It can be, but it’s whole purpose is to have more energy than 5.56mm NATO out of short barrel lengths and be crazy suppressible. Both things that this rifle is not.

    • BillC says:

      I guess it’s made for night time hog hunting, so I guess there’s that.

      • G-Dog says:

        I can’t help but think an old-timer and a 30-30 equipped with peep sights would school this setup. Just because you ‘can’ doesn’t mean you should. The 338 version is more interesting, but that may be just me.

        • BillC says:

          I think the tech is cool, it’s just an odd caliber choice for it. In my anecdotal experience, people get into 300 blackout because of it’s performance out of a SBR or its ability to go subsonic.

          Don’t get me wrong. I would absolutely love to go hog hunting with this system, I’d just miss the ability to put on a suppressor, even with supersonic projos.

          • Mr. L says:

            300BLK is sub-moa and supersonic to over 700m with the right round out of a 16″ barrel and still able to hit every shot on a man sized target at 800m. Your data and thoughts on this caliber are representative of a point in time circa 2011 and are what we see at various levels of government offices reducing the combat effectiveness of our troops.

            New calibers are emerging borne from 300BLK programs that will be introduced in the very near future. Imagine a 12″ SBR weighing six pounds shooting past 850m and a 16″ 6.5 pound weapons shooting sub-moa past 1500m.

              I’m all ears

              Everything you just said existed before the .300 Whisper, excuse me Blackout, was even announced.

    Bag O Fail, mk1 mod0

  3. Jack says:

    Tracking Point? Are they even still a thing?

  4. Stu says:

    The problem with this caliber in it’s current format is that it was essentially turned into what it wasn’t suppose to be, supersonic. As a result, everything else suffered because nobody, companies included, bothered to do a little research, and fact checking on their end. As a result , the bandwagon for this caliber decided to go where ever and with whatever hype it could scoop up, from night time hog hunters to million dollar special operations weapons testing, and people are still buying into it, wholesale.

    Maybe they should try to raise money like those old bank of boulder advertisments for weatherby rifles. Send us some money and we will send you a rifle then your money back in five years
