Default Remington XR 100 in .223

I have one that's extremely accurate, but I wish it had a little more range than the .223 offers.
If I was a "chuck" hunter, it would be mighty fine. I'm not, so this might be one of the rare ones I let go.
Does anyone else have one? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

As always, from my view it is your gun, do with it as you want to. Around here I don't have a lot of use for the 223 so I took mine and made it a 7mm tcu. I found a barrel and had it replaced, now have something I can chase deer with a better bullet weight in my view. Good luck with your choice.

Sounds like you may need to trade it in on a similar/same rifle maybe in 22-250.

Nice looking rifle, though I'm not a fan of thumb hole stocks.

I wouldn't lug that heavy thing around the woods. It's more of a 'Sit down' rifle.
It might be interesting to rebarrel it to something like 6.5 Creedmore or similar.
We can't hunt anything but varmints here with a .223 either.
Except turkey...hmmm.

This is the only thumbhole one I own. It's actually kind of comfortable and solid feeling when you're settled in with it.
