Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

I shoot a 300 RUM sendero It wears a custom barrel now but when it was factory I could easily get it to shoot under 1 inch at 100 yards thats without any bedding . if you plan to hand load you should easily get it to shoot below 1 inch I usually could get the 150 Amax to stay 5/8 to 3/4 groups . I did have a rifle basics trigger installed . the only real complaint with the barrel was it would heat up and walk All barrels heat up but the customs want walk like the factory barrels or atleast that was the case with mine.

If I had it to do over again I wouldn't have bought a NEW sendero I would find me a used one and shoot the barrel out then go with a custom barrel . If you buy a used one then buy a custom barrel you want be that much over a brand new sendero price in the end. And you will have one heck of a shooter !

just my .02

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

Mine is in .300 RUM. Braked and trigger job, but nothing else. Rarely does it shoot any better than this, and pretty consistently like this, which I am reasonably happy with, but not ecstatic about.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

That is correct.
Find one with a good action, rebarrel it, blueprint it, get a great scope, and enjoy the ohhhs and ahhhs ,......

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

In order to touch my lands I'd have to be 1/2 inch over max COAL witch, is impractical and the bullet would hardly be held in the case....

Anybody else have crazy deep lands with the Sendero barrel?

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

yes mine and my shooting buddy have extremly long senderos
but they shoot real good
Mine is a 7mm remington mag and his is a 300 win mag
Dont rember what the last group he shot was like for sure But I know its 1/2 moa or better.
The last group I shot with mine was 5 shots touching.
I cant complain about the senderos at all.
Buying a used one and rebarreling it is a good idea but so is buying a new one and enjoy shooting it
they are not a custom built rig but the price is less as well.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Remington Sendero

My sendero requires deep seating. I must have a very long throat.
Also, I beleive I have one lane that is longer than the others. When I make a dummy round, and blacken the projectile with a lighter, I get one mark that remains on the projectile long after the others have gone away. Thats why I seat so deep.

I do get 5 shots through one hole with any round I have made so far (90 grain Sierra HPBT, 87 grain Speer TNT, 115 grain Berger VLD).
