Re: 600 yard deer rifle

In my opinion the sendero is a great gun out of the box and will be my next gun.
Right now I shoot a savage 16 in 300 wsm with a vx3 scope and can shoot out to 600 all day.
My daughter shoots a ruger 77(heavy barrel) in 25-06 with 100 gr nozzlers it good out that far as well
good luck

I own 2 senderos, a 270 wincherster, and a remington 7mm magnum. The Senderos are just sniper rifles for hunting in my opinion. Being a Special Forces soldier, we had 12 M-24 sniper rifles in our Company. 2 per team, I would put my senderos up against these 5000 dolllar guns.

Re: 600 yard deer rifle

Don't think you can beat the Sendero for the "out of the box" rifle, but I don't think you need a 300 for a 600yds deer hunting. The 7's bc are just better and just in case you have a need to extend your range, the 7 mag will get you there with no problem. My sendero will shoot 2 to 3 inches at 600 yds all day long. Good luck with your choice.

Re: 600 yard deer rifle

Once again I'll be the odd man out. For less money, you could buy a Savage in any caliber you want to shoot to 600 yards and be effective. I would go with the weather warrior 16/116 series or the Mod 12 line and get into something that will allow you to use what money you have left over to get some glass. The 11/111 and 10/110 series rifles will also fill the bill. They have great accuracy and with the new accu-stock you gain even better performance. I own 2 Savages and won't trade them for anything. But if your really wanting a remington, I would definitely consider a Sendro for performance.
