A new .308 / .223 tactical rifle from Remington. I am looking forward to reading reviews about it.

When it comes to tactical firearms, there’s no more trusted name in the game than Remington. In rugged endurance, our Model 700 XCR Compact Tactical Rifle truly stretches the limits.

Our Model 700 XCR Compact Tactical Rifle, features a 416 stainless steel barreled action with Black TriNyte® PVD coating, providing a diamond-hard layer of defense against the elements. It features a OD Green stock with black webbing, wide tactical-style barrel fluting for rapid cooling, hinged floorplate magazine, and dual front swivel studs and rear stud.

    I'm looking at the XCR Compact in 223 for a "tack plinker".
    The other option is the 1# heavier LR 26" barrel version.
    The LR says full alum bedding. What the compact got?

    The hook stock is a bit much, but would be nice in the bag.

    Sounds like both shoot .5 MOA in the 308, so I'd expect as good or better in 223. By 300yds, I'd move to my 243.


    Thx J
