Re: Need advice on LR out of the box rifle.

I have a 338 RUM sendero. 1/2 MOA is the norm. Buy a Sendero and you will not regret it. I threw on a badger angled base with badger rings and a Leupold 4.5-14 LR scope. This is an awesone set up and I highly recommed it.

Re: Need advice on LR out of the box rifle.

Matt,

I am new to the forum but I have a few ideas and opinions to share. With respect to the 2 rifles you had listed I would tend to lean toward the Remington. My experience with HS Precision Custom Rifles has been nothing short of horrible. I waited 15 months for a special order 300RUM and still didn't get it. But that is just one instance. Needless to say, be prepared to wait.

OTOH, I have nothing but praise for the Rem. In particular the Sendero model. I am partial to 308 calibre so the natural choices would be 300Win/Wthby/RUM.

You may also want to look into the Weatherby AccuMark 30-378 boomer. Definitely a long range contender.

Good Luck

Verrocchio

Re: Need advice on LR out of the box rifle.

I have shoot a Sendero in 300 Win MAG load with 185 gr Lapua Buller Scenar and Vita N165 that work fine at 1 K

Sendero with a small blue print ( receiver squaring and // groung recoil lug with headspace set to minimum ) make real acccurate rifle if you compare to custom rifles .

price is better than HS and in SENDERO you have already a HS stock .

300 WIN MAG is easy to load with bullet up to 220 gr SMK or 210 Berger ( if available in Aus ) .and without exotic powder or hard to find brass .

after to have burn the Rem barrel you can put a Matco or an other Ausy barrel made and improve the accuracy .

good shooting

DANTEC,

I read on one of the other forums that both Rem Sendero and Wby Accumark started out with HS precion stock but that recently they both went to Bell and Carson stocks.

Mike,

As of 2002 production, Rem is still using HS stocks. At least, that's the answer I got from Rem about a month ago.
