    XCR-M 308 Accuracy Issues

    Hello All,

    My 1 year old, but only recently used, XCR-M is at best 2 MOA with FGMM 168 and IMI RazorCore 168, and even worse with ball ammo. The barrel is tight, bagged and bipod shooting. Is this normal? I have heard the XCR series are not the most accurate, but modern rifles seem to hover around 1 MOA these days.

    Another rifle with the same scope and ammo shot .7MOA

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I spent WEEKS trying out different ammo, tightening/loosening, shooting position etc to get my M to group with factory ammo. Best I could get it down to was about 1.5moa.

    There are a few pics/threads of guys with good groups but they're usually 3 shots and hand loads. I was able to get 3 out of 5 shots touching with my M but the other 2 would significantly open up the group.

    Battle rifle. Not a precision rifle.

    ^This. I've gotten 3 shots through one hole at 100M with ball ammo...but that's the best I've done.
