Re: Remington sendero vs. xcr lrt?
I agree , having had a look at the new offering I think its retrograde by comparison to the Sendero
I got started in LR with a Sendero in 7mm REM MAG and it shot sub MOA with very nearly every load we fed it , the stock is tried and true and triggers are easily upgraded if you wish.
I know its not a fluke as two mates of mine have followed me into the game and set up with Sendero's exactly the same with the same results , we each mounted NF 5.5-22X50 in NF mounts
- rails the rifles all make one hole larger at 100 yards and we aren't Marines.
We have slowly up specked and put HS triggers and detachable magazine sets in , I have a match grade MAB barrel in mine now but the standard Rem barrel was a one hole job.
My Vote: The Sendero is a great value place to start and or finish , you can spend more , but you will not always get more in terms of performance.
Good luck with your shooting and your Choices.
