I loved my 7 .308 custom (before it got jacked from me) and I love my 700's I currently have.
I think I'm more or less a sucker for any Sendero I see for sale, especially in certain calibers, like 7mmSTW. Absolutely love my Sendero SF in 7mmSTW. Probably the single-most accurate gun I've ever pulled out of the box. All I did was adjust the trigger, and it is still shooting 1-hole 3 shot groups at 100 yards.
I guess that's what started my love affair with the Senderos...
One day soon I'll build me a custom Sendero in .280 AI. That caliber has really peaked my interest.
I'm pretty much the same way with my Remington's. The first one (birthday gift actually when I was 14) was a 700 bdl 7mm mag that was a complete POS. Five trips to remington and it still wouldn't shoot.
Since then though I've had half a dozen that were phenomenal. In the larger calibers/magnums the only other gun I've ever owned was a model 70 7mm Mag that was also a tack driver. I don't miss the X at all but I do miss that Rifle.... .
Personally I'd just stick with the 7 mag or go up to the 7 Rum, but I have a friend that is completely addicted to the .280 AI as well.
