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.

For you Sendero owners how is carrying it in the field like say on a spot and stalk pronghorn hunt?

Re: Accumark or Sendero

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.

Re: Accumark or Sendero

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.

Re: Accumark or Sendero

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.
