I'll have to chime in also on the 338RUM. Mine with handloads will shoot right with my heavy barrel 22-250! You gotta love a big boomer that shoots tiny groups. Serious long range medicine!

Re: Accuracy of .338 or .378 RUM in a Remington 700 XCR??

I have some pretty intimate experience with the .338 XCR II and here is what I have found. Its a great basis for making a great mountain rifle out of and here is what I did.
1. Received rifle a year and a half ago and took it directly to Gentry to have a quiet brake put on. I chose this because I was building a hunting rifle. Works perfectly as advertised.

2. attached a 6-24 Pentax Lightseeker 30 (Burris Euro Diamond)

3. Took one shot with old stock and threw it in the trash! Had to wear a ski vest to shoot the gun even with the brake! BAD! I am 5'10 220lb athletic and it was like getting hit with a baseball bat in the shoulder and face!

4. Purchased a Bell and Carlson Carbelite stock. This made the rifle instantly feel like a rifle and not a battering ram!

5. Threw the crappy trigger in the trash and put an old 700 trigger on it that is tuned up at 2.75lbs Nice! They don't make triggers like that anymore!

5. 95.7gr H1000 now provides .75" groups at 100yd with 225gr Hornady interbonds and the rifle kicks like a 300wm or maybe even closer to a 30-06 and just has a great feel to it with the BC stock!

I can say I finally LOVE this rifle. I have taken one bull elk, one black bear and one coyote with the rifle in the last year. Longest shot was the coyote at 348yds facing me. The poor dog turned the snow red for 35yds behind him and had almost no a** left!
The bull went down in 1 step with a lung shot and the bullet exited the other side with a quarter size hole.
The exact same was present on the black bear. I am now a Hornady Interbond fan as well.
My 4 year old son and I will be headed back out today looking for another black bear!
Yes, buy the gun but expect to do some work to make her perform:>
