How accurate would it be.

How accurate would a factory 7mm Sendero with a Huskemaw scope and hand loaded best of the west ammunition and turrets be? Pretty much just stock with glass bedding. Just wondering if it would be accurate to 400, 500, 600 maybe 700 yards. I'm considering building one but not really sure if it would be worth doing on my own.

Re: How accurate would it be.

It's gonna depend alot on the quality of the factory tube and chamber. I had a guy from Florida send me the exact gun with the BOTW ammo and a mark 4.

He was not happy with the 1"-1.25 groups. After I played with a few things it was not much better. Put on a Brux fluted sendero contour barrel, and trued up the reciever, and it has shot many sub 1/2moa groups and a few around a 1/4moa with botw ammo, per his reports back to me.

This group was the first shot out of the new barrel on a cold January day.
