The CheyTac M300 Intervention (Carbon Fiber) is a modern rendition of the CheyTac M200 Intervention, the first of the Intervention Series. The M300 Intervention is designed with lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber, which makes it an ideal long-range rifle for tactical and competitive shooting.

Introduction

Sniper rifles have been crucial in military and law enforcement agencies for centuries. The accuracy and precision of a sniper rifle are crucial to engaging targets from a long distance, which is why sniper rifles need to be lightweight, portable and accurate. This article will delve into the features and variants of the CheyTac M300 Intervention, its design, and the users who have adopted it.

Design

The CheyTac M300 Intervention (Carbon Fiber) is designed to be chambered in either .408 CheyTac or .375 CheyTac cartridges. It uses a 7-round detachable box magazine with an effective range of 2,500 yds (2,286 m). It weighs 21 lb (9.5 kg) and features a full-length Picatinny rail at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions for mounting various accessories such as accuracy enhancements.

It also has a 29 in (740 mm) fluted barrel, a barrel twist rate of 1:13.25″ twist for the .408 CheyTac cartridge and 1:11.25″ twist for the .375 CheyTac cartridge, a detachable muzzle brake, a fully adjustable folding buttstock that has an adjustable cheek weld, a recoil pad and an optional monopod, an adjustable pistol grip, an adjustable match trigger and flush cups for weapon sling mounting.

Accuracy

The M300 Intervention is one of the world’s most accurate long-distance bolt-action firearms, thanks to its patented Balance Flight Projectile, which has a low-drag profile and a sectional density optimized for extreme long-range shots.

The Balance Flight Projectile’s design provides accuracy and precision beyond the conventional ballistic coefficient, making it the world’s most accurate and precise long-distance bullet. It is made from solid copper and is designed to reduce wind drift and drop. This unique design provides a more predictable trajectory at longer ranges, making it a favorite among long-distance shooters and snipers.

Performance

The CheyTac M300 Intervention’s exceptional performance is due to its high muzzle velocity, long effective range, and the accuracy of the Balance Flight Projectile.

The .408 CheyTac cartridge can produce muzzle velocities of up to 3,200 feet per second (980 m/s), while the .375 CheyTac cartridge produces muzzle velocities of up to 3,000 feet per second (910 m/s).

Combined with the Ballistic Computer and wind meter devices, the CheyTac M300 Intervention can engage a target successfully at over 2,500 meters with precision and accuracy, making it the perfect rifle for long-range shooting and sniping.

Variants

The CheyTac M300 Intervention (Carbon Fiber) has a civilian/sporting variant called the M300 Praetorian (Composite).

It has an effective range of 2,500 yds (2,286 m) and weighs 19 lb (8.6 kg).

It features a Picatinny rail on the top of its receiver for mounting various optics/scopes and on the bottom portion of the front end of the handguard for optional bipod mounting. It also has a 29 in (740 mm) fluted barrel, a barrel twist rate of 1:13.25″ twist for the .408 CheyTac cartridge and 1:11.25″ twist for the .375 CheyTac cartridge, a detachable muzzle brake, an adjustable buttstock that has an adjustable cheek weld, V-Block and an optional monopod, an adjustable pistol grip, an adjustable match trigger and flush cups for weapon sling mounting.
