Colt Announces A Bolt Action Rifle - The CBX Precision Rifle System! -

In a surprising turn of events, Colt announced the introduction of a bolt-action precision rifle. Since CZ’s acquisition of Colt in 2021, we have wondered in what directions we’d see Colt move and now it seems that Colt will be leveraging some of CZ’s existing expertise in precision bolt action rifle design. The CBX Precision Rifle utilises a bolt design from the CZ 600 series of rifles, pairing it with a new aluminum chassis system developed with MDT which has a 6 o’clock ACRA rail and 3 and 9 o’clock M-LOK slots.

Treglia. The CBX Precision Rifle is available at Colt now at dealers nationwide.

I am seeing more and more 6.5 x 48 Creedmoor on the ammo shelves in stores. Someone I know just got a 6.5 x 48 rifle. It is a round that is somewhat common now in my opinion. I wonder if the price of it will come down to around .308 Winchester? The 30-30 round appears to be slowly dying while 6.5 x 48 ammunition gains popularity.
6.5 Creedmoor is being pushed out by the gun media crowd . . . Everyone I know that has one loves it....but you can't find ammo in stores, and if you order it, it's ridiculously expensive.
The .300 AAC Blackout is another rifle cartridge that is now common in my opinion. It is the 2nd most popular AR-15 rifle cartridge in my opinion. It has been around 12 years and seems to continue to get more popular. 80 grain all the way to 220 grain bullets for a variety of shooting purposes. I sold mine but I preferred the 100 to 125 grain ammo shooting from a 16 inch barrel.
