Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

remington makes a fine trigger just have a good triger done on it. You will be love it. If U want to spend money on your rifle accurize it. This is how I am doing my new used SPS. I would do is triger job, pillers and glass bed if it is wood DONT float the barrle yet see wow it works first. Back to the scope look hard at BURRIS thay make a dam good scope for not to mutch money. I got 1 on my .06 3x9x40 my to buds got them on there 7mm R M. We all love them going to get one for my 7mm. Witch brings me to what power do Ual think 3.5x10x40 ?

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
I tumed my own Sendero triggers and they are fine for me. There are online directions - I would read more than one source if you decide to do it, but I am not recommending it unless you feel comfortable with it and my Senderos were the old 700 triggers, not sure about the new ones. Consider a smith or a new trigger. The latter would be optimal.

I think Huskemaw scopes are probably a little over priced at $1149. For $1483 (another $334) you can get a NF 3.5 - 15 x 50 or a 5.5 - 22 x 50 for $1632. The Nightforce scopes are a much better investment IMO. Huskemaw doesn't touch them for the $$$. You can get an after market BDC turret for the NF if you want for about $75. I dont like the Huskemaw reticle either. No dots or hashes for a quick hold and I'm not sure they have an illuminated reticle. NF scopes are in a whole different league. You will not regret it if you get one. If a NF isn't in the budget, then I would opt for a Sightron or custom Leupy before getting the Huskemaw for the $$$. You might also look at the Super Sniper.

There are plenty of options as others have mentioned. You can get a Weaver picatinney rail for about $20.00, and Warne Maxima rings, a solid set up without spending mega bucks.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

since we are talking about the 700. how the f#%* do you tell the mod. of a 700 cdl bdl sps xcr sendero what is the diff. I was out deer hunting in MN this week end did'nt see any thing. Was looking at my CHEEP scope going to keep the weaver set up. But the scope see ya. Have any of you sean that nikon coyote special? Go look at it the reticle in it thats the part that I realy like. And I think it would look good with my camo stock and stainless. the only prob is the bigest thay go is 3x9x40 I would like 3.5x10x42. 42mm if the rings are hi enough. I got a 3x9x40 BURRIS on my 721 .06

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

If yours is the new model Sendero it will be the externally adjustable Xmark pro trigger. I like mine. I tuned mine while at the range to be 3 pounds.

I would recomend a EGW base and Burris xtreame tactical rings. Great value there and VERY well made and beefy.

On another rifle I have Warne Maxima rings and bases. Also great value there and well made.

Re: Rem. Sendero 7mm mag

Thanks again guys, for all of your advice.

It's coming to me brand new in the box, so it sould have the X mark pro trigger.

I think I'm going to go with the NF one piece base and ring set up.

If you had about 2-3 grand to spend on the optics, what would you put atop this rifle?

Anything else anyone can think of, to set this rig up as a long range tack driver?
