The .22LR is another good reason to go with the 5.56. A .22LR conversion kit is a good way to save a few bucks on ammo and still be able to train with your regular rifle. Bonus most indoor ranges will let you shoot your AR's with .22LR.  ;D

The only negative with the conversion is that you only get trigger time. Most of the other controls do not work the same so you will not be trained on the use of the controls. Point of impact can be set identical at training distance of your range set.

Also the lack of a backup rifle  for the event of a part breakage is another overlooked bonus. It will be that funsaver of the weekend, lifesaver of the hypothetical catastrophe. <------- thank you spell check

Thanks to all for your opinions.  The point regarding commonality of ammunition is well taken.  I'll probably go for a .223 version of the XCR.  I already have a Remington 870 and M1A .308 for defense of a fixed location.  I'm primarily looking for something a little easier to carry if I need to go afield in a potentially hostile environment.  The .223 caliber would allow for toting more ammo along as well.
