My question is whether this gun will shoot as good as a sendero?(Be gental remember im a noob) The specs are almost the same 700 action....1to 10 twist...almost the same length. I could see how the fluted barrel would be better if you were shooting several shots in quick order...but is one 700 really more acurate than another 700
I don't claim to be a remingtion expert but they are one of my favorites to build on because
they respond well to blue printing and bedding.
With that said; A light weight rifle / barreled rifle can be made to shoot as well as a heavy
The main difference between them is there sensitivity to changes in loads,harmonics,bedding
or lack of,bullet weight,velocity,And other conditions.
The light weight rifles tend to be more finicky than heavy rifles when it comes to finding the
magic bullet/Load and also as Dano1 said the heavy barreled rifles are more steady under
most hunting conditions ( All though some of the masters can handle the light weight well ).
So weight has nothing to do with accuracy except enhancing it.
