Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

What kind of 100yd groups can I expect with a Sendero chambered in 7mm rem mag or 300 win mag? Worst case scenario groups with factory ammo and hand loads? I know groups can vary a lot from gun to gun, but what is a general average group I should expect?

Re: Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

I have owned several 300 Sendero's and one 7mm Rem sendero. All would shoot sub moa with good hand loads and Berger VLD's.

I did bed the front lug, tune the triggers and install brakes.

Re: Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

A friend recently purchased a Sendero in 7 mm Rem Mag. Factory ammo would not come in under 1". Handloads have shot umder 1", but the rifle needs trigger work desperately.

One of the best out of the box rifles made.

Re: Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

I bought mine used, 3rd owner, with all the paperwork.
Other than taking it apart and inspecting it, then torquing it in place I have done nothing to the action or stock. I did have the trigger tuned by a noted gunsmith and that was the best thing I could have done.

Having said that, I get groups just over 1 inch with Winchester Supreme 140 gr Ballistic Silvertip ammo - at 200 yards. I'm sure the rifle is capable of better. I have not bedded it yet because there hasn't been a need given its accuracy, and will start handloading for it once my Christmas presents arrive.

I've also tried Hornady Superformance ammo in it and done almost as well.

I agree.

I have no experience with 7mm or 30 caliber versions, but I do with 25 caliber and 22 caliber versions (22 was actually the short action VSSF).

Both rifles I've been around showed very good accuracy with nothing but trigger work. Consistant 1/2 minute accuracy with good tuned loads were/are common with both rifles.

Here's some pics of my pet load in the 22-250, I don't know if I could shoot this good with a 7 or 300 mag, but the rifles seem capable.? My friend has some groups like this out of his 25-06 Sendaro also.

I've got several 5/8" groups out on my .300 RUM, at 300 yards.
