I am using the Residual target function for Exray in each Xplor version.
The target standard deviations bsigma and asigma are also set to
bsigma=1.5 for m/c, bsigma=2.0 for s/c, asigma=2.0 for m/c, asigma=2.5
for s/c in both Xplor versions.

>Are you also using bulk sovent correction in 3.1?

Bulk-solvent correction in v3.1 (using the same values for k and B as those
calculated in v3.851 or using values determined in solscale.inp) does
not appear to improve the R-factors.
