My 280 weight is close to 6.5 lbs. I am now looking for a 25 06 in the XCR II next to imposible to find. I really like the fit and finish of my 280. It will be a great foul weather gun. I just cannot get away from wooden stocks.

XCR II's are a little scarce right now, I looked for a good while before I finally found one in 7mm Mag, I even called Remington and they said not a run scheduled of XCR II's in 7mm Mag till December confused I thought that odd for a caliber this popular.........Hb

I had my gunsmith, Kevin Weaver do a few mods to mine.

Sako extractor. The stock extractor was too large and would barely allow a Rem factory round to be chambered. It feeds and extracts like butter now, extraction is greatly improved.

Bolt handle welded on. Just in case you know.

Heavier stainless firing pin and heavier spring. Primer's weren't being dented quite enough for my taste in a DG rifle until this fix was put in.

Rechambered to 375 Weatherby. Just always wanted one.

I got a very good deal on the rifle new, so all totaled not including scope, I have about $1000 in the rifle and I'm very comfortable relying on it when things get a bit tense in the bush.

Nice looking rifles for sure. I would buy one if they would offer it in a lefty version. They made the XCR in a lefty version for just a short period of time and I sat on my butt and let them slip away. Just about the time I talked myself into trying a left hand bolt gun they were gone. However I do have a 30.06 and 7 MAG in the XCR right hand version. They are workhorse rifles that will take any weather you encounter. I would think the XCR II would be just as good.

So something just doesn't add up.


My XCR .270 WSM with a 6X Leupold and weaver mounts was a hair over 7 pounds all ya...they aint no 7 3/8 pounds....
