Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

I bedded the recoil lugs on my two Senderos and they are both great shooters.
One is a 7mag and the other is a 7STW.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

Have a 7mm RUM Sendero II, Only have 67 Rounds down the tube and so far it likes 86 of retumbo/180 Bergers to the tune of .6 and .5 's. @ 3020fps.
I did bed the front lug, and put on a jewell trigger though it has not effected accuracy that can be verified. It is really growing on me even though I'm used to Sako's(older ones). I'd like to trade out the ejector for a Sako--- type that would b my only gripe.
+1 to the Remington Sendero for the $
The "Lego" of rifles....everybody has parts and options for it.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

The 'Pro's'; The action has been used for many customs and has the biggest selection of after market parts. The H-S stock isn't bad, either. the 'Cons'; it comes with a P.o.S. Remington trigger and barrel.

How do you like the Jewell trigger on your Sendero?

The trigger on my Sendero just and I'm trying to decide if I should replace it with a Timney or Jewell, or just have mine repaired + a trigger job.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

I have pretty good form(at least I think so) so a light trigger is just well lighter...I kinda liked the sendero trigger, I hear if you set it too low that it functions poorly so i was happy to shoot it at 3#. I just wanted that extra tiny bit of moa,,,,

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

I had alot of problems with my Sendero SF2.
Purchased in 2009
Returned for chamber issues, would not hold zero
Returned for locked trigger adjustment screws

Finally got it back, correct.

I have shot one hole at 100 yards and 1 hole at 200 yards for a 5 shot group with my reloads, but I REALLY had to tune the load in.

I suggest you buy an action and match grade barrel and have Montour County custom rifles put it together for you on a nice H&S Synthetic stock.
You will spend the same money and have a great rifle without all the BS I had to go through.

www.cameralandny.com has some very nice Zeiss 6.5 to 20 x 50MM scopres too - Rapid Z reticle in 600, 800 or 1,000 yard versions. Floor models at great prices. I got a Vermint reticle and have killed a good amount of chucks with it.
