I just am wondering if the XCR-M will be able to shoot heavier commercial bullets in 308win and not just light bullets and 7.62x51. And ideas Terra?

If Alex runs a 1:10 twist then you'll be fine up to 175g.

If you go too big, the round won't fit in a semi auto magazine.

Assuming the commercial round isn't within spec, hand load and seat the round a little deeper and keep the OAL within spec.

If it's a hunting use round then your not going to need to load masses of i,t probably get away with using the Lee hand press.
