Largely due to browsing here I've been complaining to my wife for nearly a year over the discontinuation of the Sendero. I'd decided I was going to get a 300 WSM
custom-built in a 700 action, but that it would have to wait another year until we got together a house downpayment.
We were in Cabela's today, where I once again oggled the 300 RSAUM Sendero they've had there for nearly a year (down to $750). She convinced me I should get it for my birthday instead of waiting (what a keeper!). Then we were looking for ammo, and I complained that even Cabelas only had 2 boxes of RSAUM ammo. So she suggested I spend $100 more to get one in 300 WinMag, my second-choice cartridge.
So I got one for about $875, which I hope wasn't way over-priced. Much cheaper than the custom package I was looking at. It'll be topped with a $60 Bushnell for awhile until I can afford better glass, but that should be good enough for load development. Watch out, elk. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
