By ACR I'm assuming you mean Remington's 700 XCR, the Xtreme Conditions Rifle? The XCR has Remington's new TriNyte finish over all metal parts, and is superior to traditional stainless steel firearms. The TriNyte finish is a super thin finish applied to the rifle and according to them is both corrosion and scratch resistant. Remington conducted a salt-water spray test on the gun and all the other leading manufacturers stainless steel rifles and none could come close to the protection provided by the XCR. The XCR mainly just looked wet while all others rusted to some degree from minor to severe. Either rifle the A-Bolt or 700 XCR will suit your purpose fine IMO. If you are serious about going the extra step for protection against the elements I would lean towards the XCR.
