The Remington’s XCR II is a new long action Model 700 rifle. It does not supersede the original XCR, which was introduced in 2005, but will be offered alongside it.

It features a OD Green stock with rubber Hogue grip inserts. The stock looks very similar to the distinctive stock used for the very successful Remington VTR rifle. The gun’s stainless steel metal work is finished with Remington’s corrosion resistive TriNyte finish.

The rifle will be offered chambered in 25-06 Rem., 270 Win., 280 Rem., 7mm Rem. Mag, 300 WSM, 300 Win Mag , 300 Rem. Ultra Mag , 300 Rem. Ultra Mag , 300 Rem. Ultra Mag , 300 Rem. Ultra Mag , 375 Rem. Ultra Mag and 30-06 Springfield.

The following specs are for the .270 Win. version …

    Remington doesn't seem too crazy about the .308. They do offer it in the model 7 and some of their tactical offerinngs, but it seems like they clearly favor the .30-06 case.

    if you wouldnt buy te gun in the first place dont complain about not having the 308 in this gun selection, i own the 280 in this gun and i happen to love the stock, its extreamly well putntogether and i have no complaints, and dont get me started on the grouping on this gun cause ive never seen better, this stock is perfect and light, just how it needs to be!
