I have a remington 700 xcr in .25-06rem, and I have had it for about 4 years and just know have had the time to mess with it. And now I have a problem. I can't get the damn thing to group. Best group I ever had with it is about 2" @ 100yards. I have tried almost every factory ammo available. I tried two other scopes and yet no improvement.
If anyone has any advice for me lets hear it. The only step next I can figure is getting it rebarreled with a nice krieger. I'm open to anything. Right now I might just put it next to my fireplace and use it as a fire poker.
Float the barrel itll probably make a big difference. The xcr stock is not very good at all. I had one and it broke in the first few shots. Replace it with a b&c medalist for $200ish even if that doesnt work your stock will hold its value. Its worth a shot.
Anything less than overkill is underachievement!

+1 from all above. There is only about 100 things you can do to improve the accuracy but I'd make sure that barrel is good and clean. Its been sitting for 4 yrs. Try some barrel blaster cleaner. Just an idea.
