Remington XCR, XCR II, Sendero, LRT

OK guys. I am new to this site but have been reading everyones input for advice for a long time. I am looking for a new 300 Win mag for hunting. We shoot out to 800 yards. I have been looking at the Remington XCR II, XCR, Sendero and LRT. My question is, would I be better off saving the difference in price with the XCR or XCR II and have a gunsmith "accurize it" over the sendero or LRT? Im not dead set on Remington. Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Save even more money... buy a savage. It will likely shoot like the Sendero without work.

I have a LRT in 308. win and it shoots in the .3's I am sure with some load development the 300 would do the same and they are very well built really cool stock very nice finish and weather proof, whatever you do spend the same amount or more on the glass you put on it. I have taken deer out to 650 with mine and it shoots awesome all the way to 1000y.

I have a Savage Model 10 that shoots under .5" while my other rifles that have had a ton of work struggle to just get to .5". I'm looking at the long range hunter.

Re: Remington XCR, XCR II, Sendero, LRT

When shooting deer inside 150 yards, the 4-5" group from grandpa's 30-30 was meat on the table. If you are shooting to 800 yards, you need a rifle shooting .75 moa or better, preferably under .5 moa.

The XCR & XCR2 are great rifles, but they are not known for sub .5 moa groups. Their claim to fame is they are the most weatherproof rifles in production. I do not think these are within the "reasonably certain to kill quickly & humanely at 800 yards" class of rifles.

I've seen Senderos shoot sub .5 moa groups & I've seen Savages do it. With the Savage you get a good stock & trigger, while the Sendero gives you a good stock & fair trigger. The Sendero is a good rifle while almost every Savage made shoots very well. I think the Savage has a definite advantage in what you are likely to spend to get your rifle shooting sub .5 moa, in that the Savage will likely do that stock while the Sendero will likely do that only after you've paid your gunsmith a chunk of money.

As you might have guessed, I vote for Savage (or a custom) for this application.
