Re: your thoughts of my choice for 1000yrd gun
Yes it is the same. I have a sendero in 7 RUM and it shoots great. I am trying to burn the barrel out of it so I can put a 30' pipe on her with 1-8 twist. This is so it will stabilize the 200 grn wildcat bullets. People say that the 7 ultra is unpredictable but I have never witnessed this. It shoots very flat and accurate. I am using 168 grain matchkings over 94 grains of retumbo.
hope this helps,
