Re: remington 700 sendero questions

im trying to get ahold of nate he has a custom shop in my area i want to get a muzzle break and a custom trigger in the next month. bedding too if it doesnt cost too much. other than that i need to spend time at the range getting used to my knobs and rifle so everything else will wait till deer season to see how it shoots. thanks for all the help. i was completely new to long range stuff before this but now i know a little.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

Don't wait until deer season! Make sure you have everything ready BEFORE the season starts. That way you just grab it and go and you will hit your shot because you have the confidence in your rifle. With all of the advice already given, and I'm a newbie so I can't offer much, I would just add that you need to practice until your confident with your rifle and bullets. If you are not confident don't take the shot because you could wind up injuring the animal. If you injure him, you already have to walk 500-1k yards just to where you shot him/her...then you have to walk and find it. Unless you feel like walking all over the place, make sure you are confident in the shot and ensure it is a well placed shot. Like all opinions, someone might disagree with me, but that is just my 2 cents. Good luck!

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

Dont know if you caught the thread on Microlon Gun Juice, But it sounds like a good way to break in a barrel and get soem extended life out of it and maybe some better velocity. I got some and will be using it on my 300 RUM Sendero.

Good shooting,

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

If you shoot 5 factory bullets on target at 100 yds and they're all touching one another, you should be feeling very fortunate. The muzzle brake, and having Nate do the work are both good ideas.

Other than that, all that rifle needs is shot! It sounds like a real tack-driver.
