You haven't shot my Ruger 416 WBY yet! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

This is why the used gun racks are filled with Ultra Mags for smokin deals, really no reson to by one new, heck, most of these used ones have less than one box of ammo through them, often they come with the left over box too! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I think new, the Savage is the best bang for the buck. A custom barrel on a used action is the best route in my opinion. Pick your action, barrel, stock and smith and it should shoot better than any factory stick for a bit over the price of a Sendero, but built to your spec.

I still like the Sendero's I've seen, they have grouped really well out of the box.

I have the 300rum sendero and it is a very sweet shooter. I am using it on the bench primarily so I replaced the stock with the Choate Ultimate Sniper stock. epoxied about 6lbs of lead shot in the forend, the grip, and the cheekpiece. total gun weight...about 21 lbs. very, very comfortable to shoot. kicks way less than my son's 30-06 featherweight with light loads. I engineered some loops and shoulder straps for it so I can carry it like a backpack. I can haul that baby for miles this way. will never give up this rifle...love it.
300 RUM and a 458 win mag...what more can a man want!
