Re: advice for an ill-shooting remington xcr tactical l/r
for what it's worth, and maybe someone can get something useful, here is an update. after the bedding and lug squaring, things looked promising. problem was that nothing was repeatable. a load that resulting in an inch group from a clean bore could shoot 3 inches the next day. I called Remington, again, this time talking to a different employee. this guy said that my gun definitely should be shooting better, and to send it in. I received an update about 10 days after I shipped the rifle back to Remington, and they said the barrel needed to be replaced. a few weeks later I received my rifle back, well, my original trigger and stock anyway! Remington supplied me their before replacement barrel target, 3.02" at 100 yds, Remington premier accutip 180 gr ammo. they also sent me the re-barreled target, 1.22" at 100 yds w/Remington core-lokt 180 gr. I was hoping for a little better than that, but I have plenty of different ammo to try, thanks to the original barrel.. wish I could have talked to the last guy right off the bat.
