Resurrecting a post started in 2007.
I didn’t see the Original Posters question answered as to weather he could send off his TriNyte coated XCR rifle to be accurized without destroying the TriNyte? Are the lugs and inside of the action coated, or just the outside and barrel?
1. Has anyone had their XCR – TriNyte coated rifle accurized? Any issues?
2. What is the groups opinion as to the pros and cons of the Rem 700 XCR 300
WinMag Long Range Rifle for a back country Northern MT, Canada, Elk gun? I have heard great things about the shorter/lighter Rem 700 XCR II in 300 WinMag for week long wet and cold back country elk hunts
. I’m wondering if the long range is up to the task.
As far as I can tell the Long Range is 8.5 lbs, 45 ¾” long with a free floated B&C stock and sells for about $1,200. The XCR II is 7.4 lbs, 44 ½ “ long with a synthetic Hogue stock and sells for about $1,000. I will be putting a Thunder Beast suppressor on whatever platform I finally decide on. Any actual in the field off the bench advice would be greatly appreciated.
