I really wanted to start this project with a sendero in 300win. But the RUM came along and we will see. I had a sendero in 300win it was custom barrel and it REALLY shot! I even tried to buy it back but it was already down the road. lol
x2 get some 215 VLD and h1000
Load some up and you will smile

Mine is a stock gun bedded with jewel trig and brake and is a.5 minute gun

Re: Sendero SF II 300RUM

I shoot the 215's with 91 grains of Retumbo. 1/2 moa in a stock Sendero 300 RUM. It shoots them well with 88-92 grains of Retumbo. Powder charge didn't really affect the groups, just the speed.

Re: Sendero SF II 300RUM

Gun shot great for early development. Tried 3 loads all shot sub MOA one shot a 3/8 " group. Not bad for limited development and only having 34 rounds down the tube. Need to add some weight maybe a little more recoil than i like though. Guns 13.25lbs would be nicer off table if it was at least 15-16.

Re: Sendero SF II 300RUM

I have this same setup with the same amount of work done to it. With the exception of a bedded factory stock. I'm shooting 210 hunting berger's over 89 grains retumbo and fed 215's. mine is shooting lights out for a factory stick. .246" three shot groups at a hunsky! I couldn't be happier for a factory rifle that's been tuned up a little.

Re: Sendero SF II 300RUM

I have the same rifle and it shoots 1/2" groups all the time, I am shooting 168 Berger VLD hunting bullets out of it at 3380 fps with 97 grains Retumbo. Love my gun! Load them so they barely fit in magazine, 3.679.
