Re: Remington Sendero 25-06
When I was looking to buy a 25-06, I had a Sendaro on order, bought the rings and all that... Then found out no one had them, this was back in or around 1993 (don't remember exactly year), and was on backorder... I ordered a Ruger M77 Target Varmit in 25-06 with 26 inch Stainless steel bbl... I beded it... preped 20 brass, fireformed one shot, cleaned etc etc...
The gun shoot 1/2 MOA, but you have to let it cool down 3-4 min between shots.. Ruger uses cheap steel.. that I think warps more than others...
Remington is a much better choice I think..
The Ruger coems with nice Rings, but they will not work with a 50mm scope bell like I use... I could have sent them back and got replacments, but went ahead and bought leupold extra high ringsfor my 6.5-20x50mm leupold matt AO scope..
The 25-06 I think is a great one, the 6.5-06 has heavier longer bullets with much better BC... but for varmits, coyotes, deer, the 100-115 grain bullets are great, launching a 115 at 3200 fps with a Berger 115 VLD BC drag of .522, pretty flat shooting out to 400-500 yards.. velocity at 3200 fps may seem nil to the 22-250's but by 300 yards, the 115 VLD is actually faster than 90% of the hot fast 22 centrfires at the same range, even though they started at 3800-4100 fps..
I plan to maybe re-barrel mine, and I'm going back to the 25-06 (standard, maybe tighter neck) with a longer barrel and muzzle break......
