New 300 Winchester magnum

I am looking at the Remington Sendero SF II and the Tikka T3 varmint stainless in 300 WM. Which gun would you choose and why?

    The Sendero,because the M-700 is the most custimised of all comercial actions and when that barrel is toast any smith worth his salt can build an extremely accurate rig with that action,and the stock ain't bad either

    +1 on the sendero. They are pretty good from the get go also! After the bbl is shot out, a good smith can really maximize its potential as has been pointed out already.

    What these guys said 100%. I absolutely love mine, and I have the older model.

    I suggest the 300 WM 5r tactical 26" in the Rem 700 very sweet rifle

    Rem 700 because of so many aftermarket parts for it

    Go for the sendero! Better stock, longer barrel 26'(!!) and no issues with the recoil - lugs. That's something Tikkas and Sakos sometimes are suffering of, especially if you are using a more powerfull calibre than 308W more frequently.
