On another note all, my long range rifle is a Rem 700 XCR. Have added a Timney trigger and ATRS brake, and have had it bedded. It consistently shoots about .6-.7 MOA. Is it worth putting a full contour match barrel on it without going with a higher end action? My brother tells me I'm not going to get substantially better accuracy unless I go with a full custom build... Something about a sow's ear to a silk purse... Much as I don't want to admit it, he may be right.
Thank you for that info. I want to run the numbers so I can come up with a lower end velocity for the 210 Targets.
I have seen some XCR's shoot real well especially the first design with the better stocks. I would not rebarrel until you try some different bullets. I would almost guarantee the 215's would group tighter. But that is just my gut feeling.
Is it hard to ship bullets into Canada? I am not sure of the laws and legal end.
