Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

I have just purchased a new Rem. Sendero 7mm mag, with the intention of mounting a Huskemaw scope on it. What rings and bases should I use? Anyone know where I can get a hold of some berger bullets up here in Canada?

I think it should make a great long range tandem. Anyone have any experiences with this rig?

Looking for any advice on the subject.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

edober,
There are several routes to go for your Sendero. You can use Dual Dovetail rings/bases made by Leupold and Burris. There are a pretty standard setup and very tough. The Leupold's don't allow for any built-in MOA but the Burris' do. You can get their Signature rings with the delron inserts. These inserts (for 1" tube scopes) come in several thicknesses (.005, .010, .020, etc.) with an insert kit also available (1" only). A set of inserts comes with the rings and the kit is sold separately. Very good system. While the 30mm rings do have inserts there aren't as many available as on the 1" rings.
You can also choose the STD ring/base system (dovetail up forward/windage screws back aft)made by Burris, Leupold, Millett, Redfield and Weaver. Again Burris has the inserts for these also. Leupold also makes a one piece STD base with 20 MOA built in but they are hard to find sometimes.
Then you come to the Mil Std 1913 or Picatinny style. These are made by several mfg's, with Leupold, NightForce, EGW, Burris, Ken Rarrell, Near Mfg, Seekings, Badger and many more I'm sure. IMO these setups are overpriced and unnecessary for standard hunting rigs. All it's got to do is hold a scope securely and most rings/mounts do this nicely without costing $300.00.
You also have the Weaver style rings/mounts which were with us from the git/go. They are sturdy, dependable and relatively cheap. Do a search on MidwayUSA and see what they have. Good luck in your endeavors. JohnnyK.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

It seems the rage now a days is the Picattiny rails. These give limit less mounting capabilities. On a rifle such as yours, that means nothing. These are however, cheaper (for the most part) than comparable weaver style mounts.

As for rings, Burris Signature Series. These will not scratch, dent, ding, or bend your scope. They also hold the scope very well on higher recoiling rifles.

The Burris Xtreme rings are also another one that comes to mind. They are a great value (can be had for less than $50). I have two sets of these and I have no complaints. They are very well made and stout. I do not have experience with these on high recoiling rifles (they are mounted on a .223 and .308). Looking at the construction, they should hold up well on your 7mm.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

For a base, think about a picatinny rail, EGW, NF or Badger or others. The EGWs are a lot cheaper than the NF or Badgers and I haven't read any complaints about them. I have the NF on my Sendero. For rings, I would HIGHLY recommend a set that will accomidate an anti cant bubble level. I just put the level on mine this year and it really opened my eyes as to how inaccurate ai was at leveling my rifle which is critical way down range.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

Thanks for all the advice.

I've got a few more questions for you all.

Remington Sendero: How's the trigger? Did you keep it stock or install a custom trigger?

The Huskemaw scope: Anyone have one and how are they? or what else are you guys using?

Thanks again guys
