Remington Now Offers its 700 SPS Tactical Rifle in 300AAC Blackout - 3

You may have noticed many of the new rifles available in the exotic 300AAC Blackout caliber, a mid-power round offered in a number of semi-automatic AR-15’s.  Now, Remington is offering  this caliber, too, but in a bolt-action, the Model 700TM SPS Tactical 300 Blackout.   
   

The new rifle is built around Remington’s time-tested Model 700 action. Unique to this precision rifle is the 16 ½ -inch, heavy-contour barrel threaded to accept AAC and all 5/8 x 24 threaded flash hiders, muzzle breaks and suppressors. Shipped with a thread protector installed. The tactical-style shorter barrel is built for shooting in tight spots while delivering pinpoint accuracy.  
   

The barreled action is bedded in a Hogue OverMolded synthetic stock with a semi-beavertail fore-end for added stability. The soft-touch stock is extremely comfortable, and made to assure a positive grip in both stressful situations and inclement weather.
   
The rifle also has Remington’s X-Mark Pro externally adjustable trigger, set at 3 ½ pounds from the factory. The receiver is drilled and tapped for optics.  It comes with a hinged floorplate magazine with 4-round capacity. Sling swivel studs round out the package.
   
MSRP:  $817

While not a long-distance cartridge, the 300 BLK in a bolt action platform could be an ideal suppressed "urban" sniper rifle. Also, for those who own an AR15/M16 in 300 BLK, this medium power rifle could serve well as a hunting rifle for not-so-big game such as deer. The short barrel would make this a quick handling, brush rifle such as in the many northern woodlands of the USA.

This is ridiculous. The round was designed around the AR design with the sole purpose of having an easily suppressed subsonic round with ballistics slightly superior to those of 7.62x39 and not having to butcher the AR upper in order to do all this. There's literally no point in chambering a bolt-action rifle for the .300 Blk.

This is an interesting rifle with the short barrel and the threads. I wonder why you would choose this caliber rather than a 308?
