I have an XCR and I love it. I have mine topped with Leupold VXL scope 3.5-10x55 and the gun is a 270 WSM. It is very accurate shooting Winchester Supreme ammo...just a pleasure to shoot and lots of nice features. good choice.

Lucky Dog - that is an oustanding looking rifle and I doubt seriously that you'll be disapointed in how it shoots, it'll shoot as good as it looks--I'm no fan of the synthetic stocks, but I've shouldered those and they come up well and give you a good grip- very nice gun----john

I like everything about it with the exception of the brake. No matter how hard I try I just can't warm up to them. They hurt my ears even with ear protection.
I am not trying to bash you as it's your rifle and you're the one who has to be happy with it. Hopefully it will shoot as good as it looks.

Fom someone who learned the hard way......... If you are going to sight in, take a shoulder pad and some serious ear protection. It is difficult to shoot consistantly when you are dreading the next shot!

I know all to well about a muzzle brake. I put one on a 25-06 encore pistol and the first time I shot a deer with it I thought my ears were going to bleed. Never even gave it a thought. When target shooting I always had protection on but when hunting it was a different story. Haven't taken the gun back out in 6yrs. Nice looking rig you have though. Good luck

Well I will take my chances on the shot before I ruin my hearing. My friends .243 with the BOSS had my ears ringing for several days after he shot a coyote while near me. If someone is hunting with a brake I make sure they are a loooooong way away from me. Anyways I hope the rifle shoots for you.
