Re: 300 RUM Sendero

scope out Gunbroker, you may get a Sendero in 300 RUM for $1000 to $1100 (New)...

Nice rifles to be sure, just sold my .270 win Sendero (bought in '96 or so when they came out)...

To the gentleman who said even a Sendero should have a Skim bedding job... THANK YOU !! Dang I hate gunsmiths that don't keep up with the times or can't read... Or maybe he just didn't want to do it...

I dont see the purpose of buying a whole new rifle just to use the action when you can buy an action for the same price.
My son's rifle is a Sendero in 2506. It could shoot about 1 inch at 300 yards at day one. Brand of bullet did not not make any difference. It has been an easy rifle to reload for.

The first thing you need to do is get rid of that stock that comes with it and send it to a good smith. If your not Sampson I would get a brake for it. And to be honest although I like mine you might be better off getting a custom gun. If your looking for bench rest results try a different caliber the 300 is not built for bench rest results it will shoot decent and will reach out and touch a lot of things. ;

Be careful with your powder selection I used some IMR-4350 as a best powder recom.from Nosler 6th edition, against my better judgement. Its a moderate burning powder and its to fast for the case vol of the 300 RUM. Good Luck the 300 is hard to beat when you get it all dialed in

Re: 300 RUM Sendero

I bought a used 7mm Rem Mag Sendero + Sightron SII scope for, um, a lot less than anyone should pay. So, if you check locally or on various boards you may find a deal like I did.

Mine will shoot just over 1 inch groups at 200 yards with factory loads. This is unbedded but with the factory trigger having been tuned by a nationally known gunsmith. I can't wait until I eventually bed it and develop handloads for it.

So, be on the lookout for one and someday you'll be well on your way to a nice long range rifle that doesn't cost a bundle.
