Which new rifle? POLL

I have a thread about this already so I appologize but I wanted to start a poll on it. I am looking for a no non-sense rifle to shoot out to 500 yards in 300win mag. Budget is ~1000$ plus or minus a bit. This is the furthest i can shoot here in NY so probably will never shoot further but I guess you never know. It does not need to be light weight as I already own a light weight rifle that i trust out to 300 yards for those long walk days in the woods BUT I also may want to avoid an extremely heavy weight rifle ( I know a few of the options I listed are heavy rifles) as I will need to walk a few hundred yards to the field locations I would use this rifle. I think max distance I would need to carry is a quarter mile. I will be shooting from multiple positions: Sitting/standing with shooting sticks, off a stable shooting rail in one particular tree stand, and occasionally prone. I will never be shooting it off hand. I know every company has lemons...but would like to avoid the more lemon prone companies. I will most likely not be customizing this rifle...but I do like the idea the savages can be re-barreled rather easily by yourself and the remingtons have lots of support so those are a plus. thanks guys!

my vote is for the t3, all that i've had and have are real shooters. 25-06 can consistently place 3 under half all day long.

Re: Which new rifle? POLL

It was tough choosing between the Sendero and the 5R..... I have quite a few Senderos and a 5R Milspec. Both models are insanely accurate.

I am a sucker for fluted barrels, so I chose Sendero. But you can't go wrong with either one. 26" barrels are the way to go.

5R....Insanely accurate, fit and finish is awesome, and its got a conservative look that I prefer over the black flutes of the sendero. If it was an older all black sendero it would be hard to choose.
