I've got one in .243. For the money, they're decent.

Got two, one in 7-08 and another in 300WSM. Haven't had a chance to work with the 300, but the 7-08 is
easily sub-moa with 100gr Nosler BT factory ammo. Once I get a chance to work a load up for it I can shrink that down a bit.
Both rifles I got dirt cheap and I consider them one of the better values out there.
Don't really know why people don't bring them up much. If you found a good deal go for it.

It's amazing how many people think a 5,000 dollar rifle is going to make them a better shot.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

Havent shot the XPR but I have a Remington 783 in .308 and it shoots wonderfully with factory hornady ammo. For a $299 rifle that will hold a MOA to 300 yards with factory ammo you can't ask for much more. I have also had the chance to sight in 3 other 783s (all in .270) and they all shot 1" or under at 100 yards with factory Winchester Deer Season XP ammo. For the price I am a fan.
