If you have average length legs then with a 400mm post on near max you'll get good leg extension.
I'm 6'3" and I run a large Bullit for racing DH. I would buy an XL for proper XC - I have an XC Heckler - but if you want a smaller more compact bike for throwing about a bit more, then the L may well be fine.
