Caracal CH300 Rifle

Caracal CH300

The new Caracal CH300 precision hunting rifle was announced at the 2013 Abu Dhabi International Hunting & Equestrian Exhibition.  The CH300 was one of several new rifles Caracal displayed at the exhibition.

The CH300 is a single-shot, bolt-action rifle that, like a growing number of high-end rifles, features the ability to rapidly change calibers.  Caracal claims that swapping calibers in the CH300 is easy, requiring only a barrel and bolt change to move between three different calibers.

Regarding calibers, there is a discrepancy in the Caracal literature.  In the description of the gun, calibers are listed as .308 Win, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua.  However, in the technical specifications, the .308 is not mentioned, and is replaced by the .408 CheyTac.  I doubt I need to say it, but there is a huge difference between the .308 and .408 cartridges.
