Thumbs up

If "match chamber" = engrave bullet… mine does (slightly).

A "full match" chamber is cut to a certain ammo. according to how much it will "impress" on the lands of the rifling and a tight fit on the O.D. of the brass.
Generally, once the bolt is "cammed" shut" you have to fire it, to make the gun safe.
This would not be practical on a production gun. But the X and XR chambers are as close as Rem. could make them. My 540XR is real fussy as to the ammo. it will chamber, my 540X will chamber a little more types of ammo., but once chambered & "cammed" shut nether one likes to extract a round, You must "fire it out". Thats part of the reason they shoot so well! So, the answer is: it's not a "full" match chamber, but it's close, so, you could call it a "match" chamber.
