You would think millions of dollars of machines and they could at least produce a true action/barrel alignment...this will be my first and last Remington. Everything has to be replaced to make it good- I thought paying extra for a sendero would get me something.....a nice stock is all I have been impressed with. It has a good look to it and did come in 7 Rum so that part I like.
I must be spoiled with my first rifle being a Sako.
Interesting... my "guaranteed" Sako Finnlight (300 WSM
) is about a 2-3 MOA shooter that has caused me a lot of grief including two trips to the factory in which they said there was nothing wrong with it.... But that's another story
My two Senderos, both previously owned, 300 RUM and 25-06 are both .5 MOA shooters out to 400 yds and I have had a coupld of .25 MOA groups with them without any accurizing work done to them... and they will both shoot just about any load very well.
Sorry to hear about your trouble WV Sendero. Unfortunately, it happens now and then, especially with the big gun makers. If you have the funds, I would highly recommend getting your action blue printed and stock skim bedded. That's something you'll want to do in the future anyway and something I was planning on doing with my Senderos.
That being said, I am planning on selling my Senderos and buying Sub MOA Vanguards because I like the actions (Howa) a little better than the Rem actions. In fact, I just got a good deal on a new one and just ordered a Broughton 5C barrel for it and will be getting a blue print and skim bed job for it.
Best wishes on your project.
