Hey I have been in the market for a good Hunting/Defense/SHTF/AllOutWar/LongRangePlinking/Precision Rifle AKA: an Everything gun. I want something Semi-Auto, that has the potential with optics and practice to reach out to 800+ Yds (I'd love to hit the 1000 mark someday.. but not really a requirement of my initial purchase)
I'd also like this weapon to be light enough to pack around and short enough to corner well and carry in a vehicle as it will be my go to gun for pretty much any Really Bad Day I might have. I'd prefer it have a folding stock (no buffer tube inside the stock) but don't really like the magazines used by the FN17s as I've heard they are spendy and hard to find.
Which brings me to the Robinson Arms XCR-M 7.62X51mm, It has a Monolithic Upper with plenty of rail space, It is available in either light or heavy contour barrels of a couple different lengths (I'm thinking my choice would be 18.6" or 20" Heavy) it has a folding stock, it utilizes SR25 style magazines (20lr PMAG
) and it still maintains a reasonable carry weight. All that is Good..
Now For the Hard part.. Does anyone have any experience with this system or any ideas as to possible accuracy that could be achieved with it. it has a quick change barrel option so I may look at having a longer precision barrel made for it to reach that mythical 1000 yds later in life. but for now I'm just looking for something out of the box capable of accurate shooting to 800yds Sorry for the wordy post but I wanted to get some of my quirky requirements out there as they rule out some of the more popular options such as LWRC, DPMS, LMT, and some others I'm forgetting.
