Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

Hey Guys,
I have been looking at a Remington Sendero as an alternative to having a custom gun built. I would like to hear some feed back from anybody that owns one. What do you like? Dislike? Where there any modifications that needed to be made? How is the accuracy? Are these rifles a good alternative to a custom rifle? Any input would be great.

Thanks, Jacob

Jacob, the Sendero line of Remington rifles are good, however, need some work to be great. A bedding and trigger job would be the first thing I would do to the Sendero. If you had more money to spend, I would have the actioned trued.

The good things about the Sendero are;
1. You have an action that can be turned into a great action
2. It comes with a good H&S stock
3. The trigger is easy to work on
4. The rifle is pretty accurate out of the box. However, if your wanting the most accurate rifle out of the box for the price, I would look at the Savage 12 Series rifles.

The dislikes;
1. The price, way too much.

The Sendero is one of the best factory rifles at the price and
make a good platform for a custom rifle,And if you decide later to
biuld a custom rifle all you have to buy is a quality barrel and
have the smith blueprint the action.

I have had at least 6 senderos and only one did'nt shoot sub MOA's

So if you are willing to take a chance that you will get a good shooter
then buy a Sendero if not then get a full blown custom with an accurace
guarantee.

Just my 2 cents

Adam32,
I am looking at getting a 264 win.mag. I don't even know what the 700P is. I looked around for it, but did not come up with any results. If you could fill me in that would be great. Thanks for all the comments so far, all the input is great.

Remington Model 700™ Sendero® SF II Specifications

If you look at the spec the 264mag weights 9lb without scope etc and if you plan on packing might be alittle on the heavy side. Well good luck
