    Anyone with a custom 1 in 7 or 1 in 8 XCR-L barrel?

    I know some custom barrels have been made by others (not Robarms) and was wondering if anyone had bothered to do it with a 1/7 or 1/8 tube and if there was any accuracy improvement with 75 gr. or heavier bullets? (EC, I know your take on the subject, LOL)

    robarm offers the 1-7 as an option for the 556.

    I have a custom 1-8" twist barrel that I got second or third hand. Honestly, I haven't tried anything heavier than 62 grains in it. Also haven't noticed it to be more accurate than my old 1-9" twist pencil barrel.

    I wasn't aware RA offered a 1/7 option. I bought my XCR as a 7.62 x 39. I would certainly chose that option when I get a 5.56 conversion kit.

    I just received my brand new XCR-L from Kermit with a 1/7 5.56 barrel (16") It does exist.

    I have a factory 1/8 stamped 16 inch barrel that is dumb accurate. Willing to part with it.

    I have a 14.5in 1/7 barrel and I really like it. I got it directly from RobArm a couple months back and I'm still working on developing a load for it using 75gr BTHP projectiles.

    I have a heavy 1/7 16" robarm barrel. I bought it to play with heavier ammo, 75-77gr and honestly the accuracy is about the same as what was getting with 55gr in my 18.6" 1/9 barrel. Around 1.5" is the norm with my rifle, 3 shots. I usually get two shots that overlap then the third will open the group up. The best 5 shot group I ever got was 1.25" but I have a hard time duplicating that. The rifle I have is a consistent 1.5" shooter with either barrel.

    I bought a Robarm 1/7 heavy that is out getting fluted @ ADCO as I type this. I found that accuracy at 100 yrds was similar to my 1/9 lw. But when you let it stretch its legs a little it starts to show up better. At Lee-Kay at the 300 yard berm I actually shot a 5.25" 5 shot with the 1/7 and that's using a Millet DMS-1 on 4x. I have an Accuracy Speaks AR that easily does half that but ....... That's with a Nikon 6.5x24x50 Using the same 77gr mk262 duplicate load I came up with.
    A M16 is a fancy city girl, sexy as hell, but a bit moody. It's all good as long as you take her to the clubs and get what she asks. If you cross the? line, its over.

    An AK is a naughty girl, all in latex and with a whip begging you to be naughty. The nastier you are the happier she is. Its clear that she wont dump you, you'll have to do that on your own.
    The XCR is the perfect blend of both. Sexy as hell but willing to let you beat her and filthy her up and then beg for more.
