Remington Sendero or Savage Weather Warrior

HELP PLEASE!!! Which do you think would shoot better groups? A factory Remington Sendero or a Savage Weather Warrior. I've made up my mind to buy a factory 300 win mag, but now I'm debating. I love remington look and feel, but I've heard Savage's are amazing. Which one? I'd like to know for sure which one groups better. I want to make long range shots. I have a Huskamaw scope awaiting a gun.

    I purchased the Savage weather warrior in March of 2011 and a new Sendero in 7MM in November. For me, the Remington shoots the best groups. Its heavy and has a great stock that sits well on a sandbag. The weight helps to get a steadier sight picture and probably helps with flinching because it tames the recoil better. If your going to be running up and down mountains though I would lean toward the Weather Warrior. I have shot both out to 800 yards and either will print a group small enough to hit a deer in the chest. I think you will find the biggest factor in your group size is how well you compensate for wind.

    Let's just put it this way. I have never shot an inaccurate Sendero and I have shot quite a few of them. My vote is for the Sendero all the way.

    Yep. Have it floated and epoxy bedded and I haven't seen one that wouldn't shoot better than 99.9% of shooters are capable even with quality factory ammo vs handloads.

    Considering that the Sendero cost almost 2x as much as the Savage, it should be better.

    A better comparison would be the Sendero vs the Savage LRH, IMO.

    Between the two, I would go for the Sendero. If your other choice was the Savage LRH, the choice would be more difficult. The Savage LRH has a better trigger, brake, adjustable Kardsden stock, and will be as accurate, or better. The weight and balance is better for trekking around, but it still has the barrel weight for long range shooting. It will cost you $300-500 less, which could be spent on better glass,rangefinder, McMillan stock, etc. IMHO.
