My thought is to buy the rifle and you will wear out a tube or two before you can truly understand what I am saying. I have rifles that shoot much better than I am able and that is very important esp. at 1k. Why-----easy answer if you are making adjustments for conditions letís say, the rifle, ammunition, rest, and or the shooter must be up to the task or it is all for naught. Guessing is not the best way to put lead in the target whatever it is.
Find someone who can teach you the correct way to do the above and you will be very satisfied with your shooting.
I am by no means a beginner in longrange shooting, I have never used a Remington. My hunting days started with a ruger now I have a very high quality (in my oppinion) Savage 300 WSM
. I am a very good shot, but I still strive to have a rifle that shoots sub minute of angle at 100 yrds. I am always looking for new information to better my accuracy and distance, we all should. I know my limits and I strive to extend those limits. I have set my goals for 1 shot kills on my animals and have succeeded in this over the last 7 hunting seasons on Mule deer and Elk ranging from 300 yards out to 800 yards. I shoot hundreds of rounds every year to prepare for the one that counts in the fall. I just needed some info on the caliber at hand. I was told that the Remington sendero was a great rifle. I am not familiar with them at all that was why I asked for insight from others.
thanks for all of the info about my questions from all of you, I will be looking into trying to buy this rifle in the 300 RUM once the wife allows it. (got to keep the boss happy) if you know what I mean.
