Accumark or Sendero

Trying to decide which to buy, I was wondering about the pros and cons of each or both. I plan on getting one or the other chambered in 25-06, and using it for prarie dogs up to deer sized game within 500 yards or so.

    Get the Rem. Sendero it has a much better trigger and everyone that I have ever seen really shoots. The stock on the Sendero IMO is much better also.

    While the Sendero is not what it once was, it is still the hands down better choice of these two. I wouldn't give two pounds of powder for an Accumark.


    I packed a Sendero around a couple of weeks ago on a sheep hunt and it wasn't that bad. Of course, it's weight was well spread out over my shoulders in my Eberlestock backpack but there was a ton of other stuff in that pack with it too!

    That will depend on your strength & fitness level. Alot of people don't like the weight. I have carried my Sendero's (25-06AI & 300WM) all day on many hunts. In particular I have used the 25-06AI on many WY Antelope & Mule Deer. The weight is not a factor for me at this point. But I am not a small person either.

    As with any rifle the more you carry it the easier it gets. You need to train your muscles to tote the load. A good shock absorbing sling helps a great deal.

    I am a Weatherby guy, but I would go with the Sendero. The money you save I would have it glass bedded and buy lots of ammo.

    Carrying in the filed is not that bad. That said I would not take on a Sheep hunt. Get a nice pack that carries it Liked the Gunslinger.
