which model to get in 300RUM????

Yes,another 300um question,But mine relates to make model. I can't decide what factory rifle to puchase. Remington has the most model's I have been thinking about the 700lss(non-mountian),or the sendero. Also the savage 116(with out the brake). My question is accuracy,velocity. wish to get 3500+ with 165gr bullets for long range deer hunting. sendero is the most expensive and the lss is about $200less and the savage $200less ,yet. what gun is gonna produce accurate fast loads in this caliber. also what has to be done to any one of these to improve if I choose one. I need some experienced answer's and I see theres alot of RUM shooters here.

They will all do what you want them to do....I would lean toward the Sendero...I had a Rum in 300 ultra that was a .5 moa gun out of the box...

I would go with the savage, they are just as accurate as the remington, and with all the money you save you can buy alot better scope, They both probably have 26" barrels so velocity is the same, the only draw back to savage is that you have to look a little harder to find some after market stuff, and if you get one with out the accu trigger your going to have to spend some time adjusting it. you might also want to consider a heavier bullet, they shoot alot better at long range.

I am wondering if the stock is better on the 166 than the model 110 from 4 years ago. My brother has a synthetic blued 300 win mag in a 110 and the stock is extremely flimsy and almost feels like you could lull it apart while using a sling.

3500+ seems fast for a 165 in a 300RUM factory rifle with 26" tube.

I think they changed the stocks, the older ones are p.o.s.
