need help deciding

I'm planning on buying a rifle in a couple months, and i was wondering what you guys think of the winchester model 70 Stealth and of the remington model 700 Sendero?What kind of MOA can i expect from these rifles?
I was also thinking i might wait a bit longer and get a HS Precision tactical rifle.Would it really be worth the wait and extra cash for the improvement on the Sendero and Stealth?
thx for your input.

...Sendero is a good option among these choices... might shoot around 1moa consistently, if set up properly... but more importantly, there's no limit on how far you can take it toward accurizing with all the aftermarket upgrades and knowledgable smiths out there... but, personal preference is top of the list!

...probably better off "skim bedding" the aluminum bed...the aluminum might be straight, but the action won't be...

...jewell is the last word on triggers... when looking at remington, just automatically add $200 jewell trigger; but, you can always remove it if you sell the gun later... hope this helps...

I started out buying Win.Mod.70's, but moved to Rem. Mod.700's. I believe there are more aftermarket parts for the Mod.700's. I also have some troubles with the action on my Win. Parts? Mcmillan and HS for stocks not to mention various barrels, and triggers all kinds of parts for the 700.

Re: need help deciding

i was leaning towars the 700, but now you guys convinced me.So besides trigger, what should i do to make teh sendero more accurate?New barrel is out of question untill i shoot the one its gonna come with, in wich case ill switch for a 28" lilja, as this seems to be the name that comes up the most often.

Re: need help deciding

First thing you need to do is shoot it. Then you can decide on custom options to suit your needs and preferences. I hate to tear a perfectly good firearm apart and do a rebuild before I've done some shooting first!
