    Target specs for the XCR-M

    Given that the XCR-M will inherit parts of the design from the XCR-L are there any target specs as far as length, weight, barrel choices, etc.. that the R&D folks could share at this point?

    I second this, id assume most of the furniture is going to be offered across both XCR's, like stocks, grips, and sights. But barrel options along with definitive chamberings besides 308 would be nice

    3. Only hits count, the only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss
    4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly
    If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun

    I would think that it would be fairly easy to develop .243 Winchester,.260 Remington,7mm-08,.338 Federal,and even .358 Winchester if there were enough demand.They should all offer caliber swap with only a barrel change.As far as barrel lengths,I would think 16,18 and 20 inch barrels would be a good place to start.You could offer heavies in each,but the 18 or 20 I would think would be the most likely.

    Re: Target specs for the XCR-M

    That seems to be the popular lengths right now, though i loved the 22" on M1A's, long gun though.
    I'd like to see 6.5x47 Lapua, uses the same bullets as 6.5 grendel ammo made by Lapua so great ballistics, but ive only read one article on weapons using that round here in the US and it was a custom remington 700. Don't know if it uses the same bolt face, so I don't expect alot of demand, I can dream though

    Although that may be an excellent cartridge I would not hold my breath for anything to far removed from the mainsream.Honestly with a smaller case capacity it won't do anything a .260 Remington won't and will cost much more to do it,using factory loads anyway,if you can find them.I would say the 6.5 Creedmore would be the better choice,and that one is unlikely to.

    I would just stick with 260 remington. It can do whatever the 6.5 creedmore and 6.5 lapua can for the most part and it is cheaper too. And 260 rem is readily available in Canada as the 2 others are scarce.

    It's hard to curb the enthusiasm for high performance ammo, of which Lapua is quickly making a name with its .338 Mag. But I can't spend the cash for a custom gun for using expensive ammo, So long as she'll eat up the M118LR that's enough for me to invest, and conversion kits for other purposes as they become relevant. I need a job with one of these companies so i can get the stuff at manufacturer price... in a perfect world

    Re: Target specs for the XCR-M

    I understand.I used to be a really into all the new calibers.Not in the sense that I would go buy everything,but It used to really,really interest me.I'm not on the ballistics kick so much anymore,but it does still interest me.
    I'm not sure how concerned you are about SHTF,but oddball calibers that are expensive and difficult to come by will virtually useless if we ever have a huge economic metdown or similar situation the causes national anarchy.That is unless you can afford to stockpile in fairly large quantities.I would suggest resources are better spent elswhere.Do get me wrong it your hard earned dollar,I would just hate to see anybody have a nice stick that when trouble came really knocking couldn't feed it.I have a few old oddball calibers still,but they are guns that I got when I was just accumulating firearms I like,now my thinking is geared toward practicality more.
    If I had unlimited funding,The XCR-M in .260 Remington with a 20 inch tube,fluted heavy barrel,with a really nice optic in my opinion would make an outstanding perimeter rifle.That is of course also providing I would have at least a pallet of ammo squirrelled away for it.As it stands I'll be sticking with the 7.62x51 version.The .338 Federal would make a really nice heavy hitter,but same deal with the ammo.

    Re: Target specs for the XCR-M

    Exactly, practicality has to rule, 308 is wide spread and will be what I chamber my M for when I get it (especially with magpul making pmags in SR25 pattern with MSRP's of $20), and ammo (even if I have to use POS surplus) can be had. A conversion kit for exotic shooting might be a later investment. I'll just watch the developments for now, It'll be tax season before I can buy big again anyway (my poor wallet is still crying from my PSL 54C)

    The restraints on cartridge caliber will be the magwell. If it can fit in the magazine for the XCR-M then it is doable, if not, it's not.

    So .243, .260, 7-08 should be doable

    Wildcats based on the .308 x 1.5" such as the Benchrest Remington range MAY be doable (.22 BR, 6 mm BR, 6.5 mm BR, 7 mm BR, .30 BR.)

    .22 Cheetah maybe
