remington senderos

How good are the senderos out of the box?I am looking for one in a 300 ultra for a 5-600 yd gun.Is it hard to get them to shoot half inch 100yd groups without a lot of work?

    I am shooting a 300 RSAUM out of the box. During break-in, the rifle put 9 round in a 0.720" group with factory ammo. Best groups thus far, 0.202" @100yds, 1.14" @ 300 yards, 1.44" at 535 yards. All groups were shot with 53.5 gr Varget, 175 SMK, RP9.5M. 1/3 MOA to 535 yards or better . . . I'd say its doable! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The Sendero is a great rifle. Too bad Remington decided to discontinue this model.

    Well, if you glass bed the action and find the right load, how does a 1500 yard gong whacker sound? Calm days can even produce great groups at 1 mile with the cartridge you mention and a good 220 grain MK.

    What was Remmy thinking when they cut this serious player?

    From day one, before I even knew what glass bedding was, It shot 1/2" groups. I love all of mine.

    That is what I was hoping to hear.I have been looking for one for the last few weeks locally without much luck.I am surprised that they quit making them,I should have bought one sooner.Thanks for the replies.

    Factory 180 Swifts will cut 5 shot clovers in my 300 RUM with no work. I am calling the gunsmith today to see how much the bolt not closing all the way is going to cost me. (after 100-150 rnds) WTF??? I was there 10 minutes and 2 people called with bolt issues on remingtons. I want to get it bedded, blueprinted, and a new trigger but will have to wait and see what this bolt issue is going to cost me.
