Newbie here...

All,
I am new here and to long range hunting. I have several questions that cannot be addressed in 1 thread. But to start,
I just bought a Remington model 700, Sendero SF, 7mm RUM. I am almost done sighting it in @ 300yrds. My main ques is this, how accurate should I expect this gun to be with factory loads? I read some threads talking about 1/3" @ 300yrds. Thats a group!!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
Is that even possible with my gun?
Thansk in advance for all the help. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

For stock 700 expect no more than .5 MOA ie 1.5 inches at 300. However more likely is with careful tuning you can get around 3/4 MOA as routine.

1/3 at 300 is custom guns and no wind days.

Hillcountry ,
Could be closer to 1.5 inches at 100 (5 shots averaged 1.25) if it's anything like mine was . You'll know once you've tried it .
One hot day doesn't make a Summer and contrary to what lots of people think one good 3 shot group doesn't make an accurate rifle .You are talking 1/10 MOA out of a factory gun . Only in our dreams !
Add about $4000 to your Remington for groups that size .
