new long range hunting rifle

Getting rid of my etc venture .300 I'm looking to get something more tailored for long range hunting.
Would like to stay under $1500 on the rifle. First thing that comes to mind based on looks and price in a Remington Sendero II in .300 win mag. I would like at least a 26" heavy stainless barrel and a sturdy stock. (HS..B&C..sect) Any other options out there that you would recommend? Thanks

Remington Senduro and Winchester Coyote light are the best bang for your buck in that price range. you can find the odd used mark V Weatherby for that price too, and they are a little nicer yet. If your looking for a sporter barrel the market opens up a fair bit with the Win Extreme Weather and a few others from Remington and the Vanguard line of weatherbys.

Im currenty waiting for my finances to buy a Win M70 Coyote light in 7WSM.

No other suggestions even come to mind for me, as I am a huge Sendero fan. I personally don't think any other factory mass-produced rifles compare, except for the Remington 700 5R MilSpec. The offer those in a .300 WinMag, as well. The Weatherby Mark-V AccuMark is another excellent choice, unfortunately they are much higher in price than the Sendero or 5R... I love my Accumark, they are great rifles, but because they are not considered a machine-produced rifle, they are much higher in price than most Senderos and other brands, but what you get in the high price, they more than make up for in accuracy and attention to details.

The prices should be very similar, so going in either direction, I don't think you could go wrong.

Definitely....Or an older Remington 40-X trigger that's been worked. The X-mark triggers suck.
