I know of two friends who have Sendero's in 300 RUM, one gets ocasional 1/2 or 5/8 groups and the other shot out his, after 2500 rounds over 6" of rifling was gone! I Put a Rock 26" fluted sendero contour & a Vais brake on for him and he has shot 5 different loads in the .2 & .3"s. Says that it doesn't give him a headache now w/the brake. Get a Sendero, it's a great platform!

    Ron, I am a yearly visitor to your state. I have always wanted to catch an Apache trout and the next time I head down there I'm going to make a trip to the White Mountains to do just that. Maybe I will IM you for information. I bet I will be there in November or so of this year but haven't made any plans yet.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I guess Sendero it is, going to go brand new Sendero SF II in .300 REM unless there is some reason I should be looking for an older model because it is better somehow? What's the cheapest I should expect to get this gun brand new?

    I paid just over $900 for my 300 RUM Sendero SF II about a year ago. Go with the 300 RUM SF II and don't look back

    I have been in the same spot and I put a new barrel on my gun. After pricing many different barrels I just put a douglas on it and it shoots fine. As for the XCR or Sendero. I have both it boils down to which one you will love to carry. <<<That Sendero is a big girl. I like having Remingtons built . Seems as if they are the chevy V8 or rifles meaning it does not take much money to make them very good guns. Good luck. PS I am jealous of your location. Montana is where I want to live when I grow up. Until then I will be in Mississippi
