Re: 300 RUM Sendero
First off either find a good smith and have them work the trigger over or get a timney or a jewell, I went with a jewell because the smith I first went with would not take the trigger below 3lbs, some say thats plenty for hunting, I say use what ever your comfortable with. I have my jewell set at about 12oz and love it. I also went with a nightforce 20moa rail and rings. The next thing you need to decide on is the bullets your going to shoot. My gun did not like bergers, it likes accubonds, barnes TTSX and 208gr A-Max. Then comes powders, Retumbo, H1000, RL25, RL22. Now if you decide to shoot 180gr accubonds then the powder that seems to work the best is IMR4350. I have put alot of rounds down mine. If your going to use longer ammo then you have to consider the wyatt extended box magazine, very easy to install. You might also consider a removeable magazine box, I am thinking about that for mine, some people will say put a muzzle brake on, well I had the first smith I used put one on and he messed it up real bad, its being cut off as we speak. I don't think the recoil is that bad. When the barrel is finally shot out I will go with a 28 inch broughton. You will find you either like the palm swell or you hate it. Myself I am on the fence with that one. There are some nice light stocks to consider. You will also want to get a bipod for it and a really comfortable sling. There is so much more I could tell you about it, if you have any certain questions you want to ask me, feel free to shoot me a PM.
