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
I have about 5 years under my belt shooting a remington .270 and as for the pelican case.. i was at school at the time and as u can see there was snow on the ground and didnt want to cut the foam outside.. since than i have cut around the rifle nicely.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

I find this thread very interesting. I just found this forum and joined because I am thinking that I want a 7mmRUM. I hope to find more info on reloading info. I am looking at getting the Remington 700XCR. Would/could this rifle be very accurate out of the box? I have a 7mmRM now but am wanting something different. I usually hunt mule deer and elk. I figured I could use either of these calibers for pretty much any big game in NA.

For the purpose of accurate NA hunting, I would move toward a shorter fatter catridge like the 7mm WSM. The XCR could be accurate out of the box with ample shot spacing, but it's only good for two back to back clean shots. After that of course, the barrel will be too hot to do any good at long range. Also, the 7mm WSM is a short action, which means an overall lighter rifle.

the sendero rifles are very accurate out of the box.. at 100 yards my holes touch each other.. dont get the 7mmRUM though.. i have only heard bad reviews. the barrel burns out real fast. the 7mm RM or 7mm WSM would be better options

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

I already have a 7mmRM. I bought it when I was 17. I was looking for something new. I figured why not get something with long range capabilities. I was thinking of a 300wsm but does not seem much different than the 7mm I have. Though I would like to keep the rifle lite and smaller.

Re: remington 700 sendero questions

the 7mm mag is a very good long range shell... i read an article on long range cartrages and here are what they are

7.62x54R
7.62x51/.308 Winchester
6.5x55 swedish mauser
.260 remington
6.5 creedmoor
6.5-284 Norma
7mm Rem Mag
.300 Win Mag
.338 Lapua Mag
and the .50 BMG of course

.308 is a very popular model

for accurate long range out past 1000 yards i would suggest the .338 lapua mag
