Although this is interesting how it may turn out, you really need to understand "the why" folks voted the way they did before making a decision on what is best for you. I went through this process recently but did a lot of research before opting for a 5R. FWIW....I would suggest you do likewise because the most popular choice may not be the right choice for you.
5r for the twist rate and stainless. I personally like the HS Precision stock better too.
Not the XCR for coating they have in it. Would rather have my own choice of duracote/cerakote finish. I believe its a 20" fluted barrel too and though I like the 20" barrel, I'm not a fan of the fluting.
Your call. Either one should shoot pretty good. If you can put them both in you hands and compare before you make the call.

Yeah! And hold up two forms of ID so we know theyre your rifles too!
The 40x trigger on the XCR is pretty nice. My XCR Compact .308 has been a good shooter. The furthest I shot paper was 2 groups at 335 yds One 3 shot group came in at 1.5" and one 4 shot group at 1.6". Ammo was Nosler 168gr Competition. Beyond that I have only shot steel. Not bad for a factory gun.
