Save all your bass and instead of buying a new stock buy a reloading set up. You will gain more accurcay from reloads than from any stock!

Besides you will save your self a ton on money in the long run.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

I would definately reload my own ammo if i had the, room, money, and time.. so ill cringe instead everytime i buy a $60 box of ammo.. i have a friend that reloads i might send my rifle to him and have him make me a ton

7mm RUM is a really hard shell to buy for.. none of the match grade bands make them.. black hills ammo, hornady or anything good

Yup, all the more reason to load your own. And i would normally agree with the comment about lack luster Rem ammo, but the guy I bought the gun from said he shot a 1" group @ 350 yds with 300 RUM Rem 180 scirocco bonded, power level III and I dont think he was blowing smoke.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

i wouldnt be spending any money on that gun other than a muzzel brake, and a trigger tuneup.
the muzzel brake will help your flinching, and will allow you to follow your shots and see your hits at distance.
i would definatly send the scope to leupold and have target knobs installed. that way you can zero in at 100 yds. and with a click chart add elevation according to the distance.
with that gun for example about 75 clicks from the 100 yd. zero would put you on at 1000. depending on load of coarse.

spend your money on (GOOD) loading equiptment, and learn how to load.

you have an excellant long range cartridge, and a rifle that will rival many of the so called customs right now.
just shoot it and dont worry about the barrel.
a corvette aint cheap to run, but they sure as hell run. so does a 7 rum.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

they can add tac knobs on the scope.. like they have on the mark 4 LR scopes? thatd be totally badass.. and muzzle break is def coming, as well as trigger. how much does it cost to start up reloading?

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

the leupold M1 knobs are probably what you are thinking of. Yes Leupold can do it. check out thier website. I believe it can be done for less than $100.
