    XCR-M Accuracy

    Does anyone have any idea how accurate these rifles will be? I'm looking at a few other options in 308, but I don't like the scope mounting options, something I'm sure won't be a problem with the XCR. It's all basically going to come down to accuracy which I hope is close to MOA.

    Re: XCR-M Accuracy

    Since the objective is to make these bad boys as accurate/more accurate then the XCR-L, I'd have to guess that it'd be as accurate as... well a long-stroke Garand-style action, with a Garandish bolt, but with no bedding deal to mess with.


    I'd gather it'd be as accurate as a bedded Garand?

    Will probably be MOA if you're talking chrome barrel. Sub-MOA if you have a nitrided SS match barrel, the new stock, and optics.

    A nitride barrel might/will be made, depending on whether or not enough people would buy it.

    If they offered a nitrided barrel, I'd get one for L and/or M.

    Where did you hear a nitrided bbl would be made? Are you saying RA has stated this? When? RA tried it in the past and had problems with the 6.8 version so they decided NOT to do it.

    Just wondering if something has changed as I too would like a nitrided bbl over the standard chrome lined offerings.

    I'm sorry, I did not mean to imply RA had said anything about this. This was an older thread I found and I was just stating that I'd love to have a nitrided barrel if they offered one.

    Do you know what kind of trouble they had with the 6.8 version? It seems many other manufacturers have excellent barrels nitrided. LWRC, POF, Remington, PWS, come to mind. But RA being a small company, maybe they just figured it wasn't a priority to optimize it at this time?

    Some sort of over pressure issue. IMO, it was simply that RA took it to a bbl mfg that didn't know how to do the process correctly. It's easily solvable if you take it to the right company. I think the real reason we haven't seen it is Alex isn't interested in investing the money to have that option available even though it is the future and is much more accurate (and more durable) and CHEAPER than chrome lining.....but I've also heard rumors that he gets bargain basement pricing on the bbls he uses from the maker he is using.

    Yes, I've heard of ACR's having salt grit not properly cleaned out of the chamber after the nitride treatment.

    Re: XCR-M Accuracy

    Has anyone performed testing yet to see how accurate the XCR-M can be with match ammo and a decent scope?
