Re: Opinions on Remington Model 700™ Sendero® SF II

I let these guys talk me into buying a Sendero SF II in 7mm Rem about 5 years ago (even though all of my previous experience with Senderos was poor) because everyone bragged about how well they shot. I bought the rifle, it shot like hell (1.5 to 2 MOA), bedded it, still shot like hell (1.5 to 2 MOA), sent it to a gunsmith and had the barrel recrowned (1.5 to 2 MOA). Then I had the barrel replaced with a Hart by the same gunsmith (who commented on how good the bedding job looked) and WAHLAH! Sub .5 MOA!!!

Now I buy used Senderos and have a Hart or a Krieger put on them. Now that's a rifle!

Re: Opinions on Remington Model 700™ Sendero® SF II

I've heard alot of good things about senderos but the one I had was a POS. It typically shot 1.5" and I tried load after load in this thing (over 230 rounds) and finally traded it. I have 3 other factory Remington 700s that will hands down out shoot it (338 RUM, 300 RUM, 22-250) so I think my 7mm sendero was just a lemon but it makes me think twice about buying another off the shelf rifle and I lost alot of faith in Remington. The sendero in my opinion is too damn expensive too when it is a gamble on what you might get. Buy used if you can in case it needs gunsmith work.
