    I thought the XCR's were supposed to really good for not rusting?

    I was surprised also. Made me feel better about stainless.

    I was looking at old pics from the trip. It might be stainless, but the barrel has some color to it. nice rifle, but either way he was getting rust off. this was on a backpack dall sheep hunt in 2007.

    High grade stainless has enough carbon in it to exibit some "oxidation". Same reason the magnet will stick to it. I am assuming a barrel would be made from these higher grades.

    You might consider this combo. I have a Winchester 70 Extreme Weather in .300 WSM. Standard with the Extreme Weather is an easily adjustable trigger, fluted stainless barrel, and a Bell & Carlson stock. I added lightweight Talley one piece bases/rings and a Leupold VX3 in 3.5-10X. Weighs an ounce or two under 8 lbs. I handload 150 gr Accubonds and my rifle shoots 5/8" groups at 100 yds. I think retail on Extreme Weather's are around $1100, now. I use it for antelope and mule deer. Load it with heavier Accubonds and you would have an elk gun.

    If you are looking for a one and done type of thing I would take a look at the Nosler trophy grade rifles. My wife won one last year and the thing is awesome. It has a great barrel, stock and is completely weather proof. It is defiantly something that will be with our family for a long time.

    Hard to actually rust with that coating on them. Might have something react to that nickel compound if its really been scuffed up, but it'll be a yellowish brown color...then if debris sticks to it it will turn darker. Of course if the barrel has been cut for a muzzle brake it can rust around the cut.
