Re: Bad Sendero

Kevin---you are right things change and sometimes not for the better. I loved the Python but sadly there will never be anymore of those either.

On the other side, the rifling came all the way down to the case mouth, stopping abruptly at the step of the chamber. Did a chamber cast of all four, and they were all identical. Don't know what the angle was (and really didn't care), but they were all the same, obviously chambered on the same set up with the error repeated precisely in all four. Big Green seems to be making an effort to get this sort of issue cleaned up, but I'm still very cautious about buying a newer Remington these days. As long as they're marketing to the Wal-Mart crowd instead of gunshops and serious shooters, we'll probably continue see this from time to time.
I know a guy that bought two 700 PS's at the sametime. Both in .308. One shot around .50" groups right outta the box, but the other was impossible to hit a 36" target with (100 yards). The barrels looked pretty good till you did a serious check on them. The one that would not shoot had a bore that was way off center in the middle, but started out and finished on center! (he had Mike Pence check the rifle out for him). So he sent the rifle to McMillen for a new barrel and stock. Comes back almost as bad (shot 1.5" groups). So he then has Pence cut a barrel for him in 6BR, and shoots in the threes once he got the die fiasco straitened out.

I think it's a complete waste of hard earned money to put a Krieger barrel on a Sendero. I'd simply pack the gun up and send it to Pacnor for a new barrel, and save about a hundred fifty dollars. This is not a bench gun, but a hunting rifle. So you just don't need that quality of a barrel (and Pacnors do shoot very well)

That is one of the most ignorant statements I have ever seen made on this site. You are making way too many assumptions and obviously not speaking from experience.

That is the problem with internet advice--all you need is a keyboard.
