Alex, I agree completely on the barrels in 223.

When you get to the 308 barrels though, longer would be better. Like 20 to 22 inches being optimal for the longest versions.

The 16" barrels in 308 I've been around have been 'less than ideal' in my opinion. Heck, in that regard, I think the Belgians got it right with the ParaFAL - which has an 18" barrel. Much less bark and blast - surprisingly so for only 2" more barrel.

So that's what I'd request up-front with the XCR-M, barrel selection from 18" (or maybe as short as 16" for those who REALLY have to have 'em) to 22" on the long end.
