At SHOT Show 2022, Bushmaster Firearms had its new BA30 straight-pull bolt-action rifle on display both on the show floor and during Industry Day at the Range. The BA30 rifle is available in .308 Win. or 6.5 mm Creedmoor chamberings and 18- or 24-inch versions. 

Bushmaster says the BA30 is “engineered and built with accuracy, speed and reliability for both hunters and precision shooters, both domestic and international.”

The BA30 barrel twist rates are 1:10 for .308 Win. and 1:8 for 6.5 mm Creedmoor.

The BA30 sports the XM-10 barrel and bolt design, which includes interchangeable XM-10 barrels, bolts, handguards, muzzle devices, grips, triggers, and magazines. Additional features include Type III hard coat anodizing, a 1913 stock adapter and an ambidextrous bolt handle and magazine release. 

Bushmaster Firearms International CEO, Sun Naegele, stated:

“Bushmaster is excited to add this easy caliber conversion bolt-action rifle to the market. As you all know, this is not an Adaptive Combat Rifle, but we are full steam ahead on the ACR project for 2022 and are looking forward to bringing it back.”

MSRP price for the new Bushmaster BA30 straight-pull bolt-action rifle begins at $1,799. Learn more at
