I don't think so, but they have a page on their website that deals with what their custom shop can do.

there are more decisions for you in this area also.
to answer your question, YES leupold will change the reticle.
there are numerous options. i would personaly reccomend taking 1 step at a time.
get the turrets and learn how to use them.
next start reloading, and establish the load you will be using.
there are several types of dots that can be installed. mil dots are but 1 choice, and not necessarily the best choice.
for example i have dots in 3 leupold scopes that go from 100 to 1000 yards, and 1 goes to 1200 yards. no dialing is necessary, although i still have that option.
check out t.k. lee, birmingham al. www.scopedot.com
dots are very quick, and very accurate if installed properly. accurate load data is important.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

I sent in my scope today to get m1 turrets put on. i will post pics once i get it back.. i will send it in later after i get real good at reloading. the turrets cost me 130 bucks and a reticle change would cost 160 bucks. i also have another question. i have the sendero stock and wondering if there are aftermarket cheek rest i can put on? i plan on getting a different stock eventually that has an adjustable cheeck rest. any ideas?

Since it;s an HS stock, I would get the HS cheekpiece. It looks "different" but works very well.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

I have had some of the same questions with my 7mm RM Sendero that you are dealing with. By fooling around with bedding, triggers, reloading , and barrels i've taken a out of the box rifle that was subMOA rifle and made it a 1.5MOA RIFLE. Fortunately it is back to 1/2moa. When I look back at everything I've done the biggest highpoints I believe are
1)reloading is by far the best investment. Lots of fun, lots of different bullets and overall much cheaper. @50 dollars a box or $250/100 I would have spent a thousand dollars in the last 7 months at least.
2)practice with rimfire to get basics down
3)cut the foam down some in the pelican case
