Re: Witch Remington 300 RUM model plz..

Thanks you all for your answers. I think I have found my next firearm. I wonder how much it cost in Canadian dollars. There is another gun seller in in my region, I will ask him to order one. When I get the gun I will post back to ask for wich glass to put on it.

Thanks

Mush

Re: Witch Remington 300 RUM model plz..

Depends.

I wanted a 300 RUM for longer range elk/bear hunting. I hunt canyons and didn't want to pack the extra weight the sendero offers. Although it "should" be more accurate then the LSS, you never really know. Buying factory rifles is like a crapshoot.

My particular LSS in 300 RUM has been the most acurate factory rifle I"ve shot at LR. Its shot quite a few 4" groups at 800 yards with its preferred loads on a good no wind day. Would a sendero do any better?? I dont really know, but 4" at 800 yards with a factory sporter is pretty damn good IMO.

Not all are going to shoot like that though, so dont be mislead. However, I believe for the price and weight, the LSS is a pretty dang nice rifle to own in 300 RUM. I put 1200 rounds in mine over 2 years so its accuracy is long gone now..I rang 15" steel with mine at 1150 yards pretty consistently with 210g VLD's so take it for what its worth.

The sendero is a nice rifle as well, just the extra weight is what turned me off. If I wasn't going to be packing it up and down canyons all day, I wouldve went with the sendero, but I couldn't have been happier with the LSS.

I think I paid $700 US dollars for mine about 3 years ago.

Mush,
I assume you are talking about the Brown TH laminated stock? I do not know what the current exchange rate is, but there are several for less than $700 on gunbroker as I type this. Yes, it was a 2006 model. There was also a grey laminate model taht was pulled a few years ago that had no TH, but was carried on as a premier dealer exclusive untill this year. I have no experiance with the SF2, but I doubt you could do any wrong buy choosing it over the lss.
