    Re: .308 ammo

    The comment was towards the accuracy of the XCR-M platform. Not much point in shooting .260 at 1000 yards if you can't hit the side of a barn.

    If the XCR-M platform is capable of good to excellent accuracy then caliber conversions off the .308 parent case would be very interesting. For example 6.5 Creedmore. If however it displays only acceptible accuracy it limits the potential.

    Re: .308 ammo

    It would seem to me that any gun worth having in .308 would be worth having in the other calibers based on that case. Even if it wasn't a sub-MOA gun, I would still find the other calibers useful. If it was a 3 MOA gun, I wouldn't want it in any caliber.

    Re: .308 ammo

    I have shot surplus ammo that tests out to 2880 fps for 147-150 grain bullets.

    I reload for my M1A and POF with 147 grain pushing it to 2750 fps.

    I reload with 168 and 175 grain pushing 2550 fps.

    My bolt gun I load 175 grain pushing it to 2750 fps.

    If your XCR-M can handles these loads you should be good for just about everything.

    Re: .308 ammo

    With an 18" tube, I'd expect a 168g round to be acapable of 2550-2650fps at safe pressures. What matters is accuracy and reliability. For $2400 the POF give me ambi controls, sub MOA accuracy and great reliability and really sets the standard for .308 semi autos.

    Back to the question of the 7.62x39 accuracy. Two factors come into this. firstly the consistency of the ammo. bullet concentricity and powder quality and charge consistency. Handloaded 7.62x39 is capable of sub moa. Cheap shite ammo rarely is. then there is the barrel, if your barrel is .311 and your bullet is .308 you'll have an issue.
