Video Review: Colt CBX Bolt-Action Rifle

Designed for entry-level precision shooting, this new-for-2023 Colt tackdriver's available at an amazing price.

It's been 20+ years since the legendary firearms manufacturer Colt produced a bolt-action rifle. The introduction of the Colt CBX has proven that Colt simply didn't want to produce a bolt gun; they wanted to produce the bolt gun. The heavy-barrel rifle is chambered in two of America's favorite long-range calibers, .308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor chamberings, and it's perfected for long-range competitive shooting.

Often called Precision Rifle Series or PRS, it's the hottest shooting sport around these days. However, the precision equipment necessary for the sport can come with a bit of sticker shock for the uninitiated. That's why Colt's CBX is available with an MSRP of $1,899 (meaning it will likely be for sale for less at retailers).

Of course, this rifle could absolutely be used for long-range Western hunting--its surgical accuracy and heavy-hitting calibers render it more than capable of taking pronghorns at 500+ yards. That said, with its 10.75-lb. weight, this is really more of a benchrest gun.
