I just want it to shot again. This was my first long range rig and I used it for a lot of rock chucks have since added a few more long range guns so when it gets re barreld it will be a big game gun only
will the after market barrels shoot better?

I can understand the economic issue, and the consideration of having Remington rebarrel yours. But when you weigh the the pros and cons, it really ends up with a new Custom Barrel. The pros, are, much more uniform interior, and the gunsmith is probably going to use a tight spec reamer as well. That equals better accuracy, and no machine marks on your brass. I just built a custom 280, using a Brux barrel. Break in almost wasn't needed, per se" as it shot sub 1/2 inch groups on it's first outing, and the barrel simply dosen't foul! The odds are in favor of the new Custom barrel, will shoot well. The factory is MUCH more of a gamble!
The other option is you could set back the barrel you have, but the price is almost not worth the gain! Just a few thoughts to consider.

Re: rebarreling a sendero

Well thanks for all the info
Cost while parts of the decision is not the only parts
I am wanting the most bang for my buck
If the Barrel is not that much different I would go with the factory
But Im thinking I would be happier with a after market.
Im leaning towards the brux with the interrupted flutting
thanks

A premium aftermarket barrel is the way to go if you are going to invest in smith time. I highly recommend a Brux, I use them as much as I can.

I think you will be pleased if you go with the custom in the long run. Plus you have the option to go with a little tighter twist if you want to try some larger bullets or get ready for some that are on the horizon.

Often factory barrels will shoot just as good as customs, but if you are going to spend the money you might as well go custom, like Krieger, Rock Creek etc and increase the chances of a accurate barrel and it will increase the value of the rifle.

retiredcpo, I think you will be very happy with a Brux barrel. I just purchased one, and had a Custom 280 built, around a M70 action. The break in was a dream, and the accuracy exceptional, as expected. Cleaning is a breeze!
