Re: Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

I've shot a bunch of them and own two. All were sub MOA or right at MOA right out of the box at 100yds.

With mine I pulled them apart, bedded and floated the stocks, and did a trigger job on them.

Both are now sub half MOA with factory ammo.

    My friend with the 25-06 Sendaro is out shooting it at 500 and 600 yds today.

    He just called,
    He's getting anywhere from 1/2 moa to 1 moa with factory HSM ammo at those distances.
    IMO, that's pretty decent/acceptable for a factory rifle with factory ammo.?

    Well you can spend 3x as much on a custom or more and not do any better.

    The big difference being of course that the good custom builders will gurantee you a 1/2 MOA build if that's what you contract for.

    Re: Remington Sendero Performance Expectations

    I bought a Sendero in 7mm STW from another LRH member a few months ago. I haven't shot factory ammo out of it but with my handloads it shoots 1/2 moa from 100 out to 800 yards. I haven't shot it furthee then that yet but I bet it will do just fine.

    Just wondering. What makes them better than a 700 sps? The stocks?
