new 7mm sendero are the barrels unfired!

I just bought a new 7mm sendero and I thought I would run a rag through the bore to get out factory lube etc?
well I ran rag through and it was black as coal for about 3 passes or so and the crown looks like Ray charels was on the crowning tool are these barrels factory shot for several rounds or ?
I dont remember my 300 sendero being that way last year
seems like I remeber how clean it was and how easy and smooth the wet patch went through
Thanks

They do some test fire shot's I wouldn't be concerned. Mine shot a 10 shot cloverleaf yesterday.

Re: new 7mm sendero are the barrels unfired!

Thanks links, sounds like yours is driving tacks! I did one 6 1/2" one 6 1/4" and one 5 3/8" All 5 shot groups at 670 yards I was hoping it would have been around .5 moa like the 300 rum I had. oh well they are real good shooters for factory rigs.
Thanks for reply! The inside taper (at the crown) was real rough like the cutter was jumping or vibrating (sorry I am not a gun smith) and there were some gouges and dings aound the exit hole (I guess thats the crown)I guess I got a little nervous seeing this.

Re: new 7mm sendero are the barrels unfired!

That chatter mark you said inside your barrel worries me, but if your rifle is still shooting MOA and under for 5 shots, I'd say you got a decent rifle.

I had a Winchester model 70 in a 7mm STW that had about the last 4-6" of barrel with chatter marks. Well mine didn't shoot for [censored], I was lucky to get 1.5" at 100 yards. Finally shot about 1" with 180g VLD's, but by the time that came around, I already had a buyer. The guy who bought it came with a borescope and we found the problem. I was upfront with him about it, saying it wouldn't shoot better then about 1.5" with hunting loads, but with the 180g Bergers, it would do about 1". He said it was good enough for him, so he took it.

On the other hand, my other winchester model 70 is a 25-06 and its one of my most accurate rifles. Go figure...

If it still bothers you, then take it back if for nothing else but the piece of mind.

If they won't take it back, Remington will replace it with a new rifle.

Re: new 7mm sendero are the barrels unfired!

I have a Sen SF 7 STW and have never been happy with it. I have killed some deer and several coyotes with it at short to impressive ranges but also missed more deer with it in one and half seasons than I ever could guess. I mean go from shooting paper to hunting within two hours and miss twice, broadside at 115 yards, off a steady rest. For some reason I still have it, guessing that I will do something with it? I went to a Kimber 270 WSM and love it, killed two doe past 400 yards with it this year. Gained some confidence with that.
