30 Caliber Crown Continuum Available By March 2020
Yet another announcement from FX is that the 30 caliber Crown Continuum is scheduled to ship to dealers in February. That means it should be available for purchase in March, or even before.
Many didn’t think a short compact .30 cal 380mm barrel could work, admits FX. However the compact, 380mm, barrel still shoots 44 Grain .30 cal JSBs at 800FPS, the company tells HAM!
This model will definitely appeal to hunters who want a shorter length of rifle.
The Crown Continuum was first announced at the 2019 IWA Show in Germany. It’s been available in the smaller calibers since the Summer. But the appearance of the 30 caliber Crown Continuum rounds-out the range.
The compact 380mm Smooth Twist X barrel was created with the hunter in mind, says FX. Coming in at an overall length of just 35 Inches inches, this compact Crown is a great hunting platform for areas where a long barrel is inconvenient.
The Crown Continuum also includes the match winning 700mm Smooth Twist X barrel for when length isn’t a problem. Pricing of the Continuum with two barrels at almost the same price as the standard Crown.
