Remington choice... 700P - Sendero - SPS Tactical

For those of you familiar with Remy I am going to get one of the above either a 7mm Ultra or 300 Ultra, which rifle would you choose? And if you have the time, would you tell me what you like better?

Also any discussion on those calibres would be nice as there is still not a lot out on them. I am leaning toward the 7mm Ultra bacause the bullet trajectory is almost IDENTICAL between these two... and it wont knock my shoulder off,,, as much [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Plus near as I can tell, I could hunt anything in this planet with a seven and the right load. Reason i add that is I like most hunters have asperations of hunting the Grizzly and Africa one day.

Hey, ALL thanks for your time!

If I had it to do over again, I would have gone with the 300UM instead of the 7MM UM that I have. The 300 is pretty close in trajectory and the amunition choices are a little better (If you are not a handloader). No matter which one you choose, a break would be the way to go.

Superlite17,
I have owned several Sendero's in different calibers and have only owned one 700P. Once the barrels are broke in properly, and with fine-tuned handloads, I think they're both capable of good accuracy (sub .5"). I think the only difference is the stock. Personally, I like the Sendero stock over the PSS or 700P.
I don't have any experience with the SPS, and have only shot the 7RUM for a friend. Did not like the blowback from the "required" muzzle break. JohnnyK.

The .300 RUM doesn't recoil near as bad as you think it will. It all depends on the powder your using. Slow burning powders really make a differance and if its still too much have a muzzle break installed. Buy the Sendero, the weight will help tame the beast even more.

Do you feel that the 300 projectile performs better than the 7mm? Or is it only ammo selection?

Hey Johnny, you say good accuracy... do you have a rifle you would recommend over Sendero. They come with a steep tab, one that i am willing to pay, for accuracy. My last few purchases have not been shooters, I NEED A SHOOTER! It is killing me. I have not bought yet, and would love recommendations.
Also, you say required muzzle break. Is kick on the 7mm that bad? I do not really want a break. What do you shoot?

Thanks ALL for the help - Rod

Re: Remington choice... 700P - Sendero - SPS Tactical

I have both the 7 and 300. The 300 is a bdl in a lss stock and the 7 is a lss in a HS precision stock. Factory bbl's. Neither have a break. Both are quite shootable. The 7 kicks less so I can shoot about twice as many rounds from the bench with top end loads; 160 accubond and retumbo vs the 300 with rl25 and 200 accubond. But have no problem taking punishment for 20-30 rds from the 300 in a session. With the 7 I get accuracy at 3550 fps with the 140 accubond/RL25 and 3250 with the 160 accubond/retumbo. It is super accurate with the 150 partition/RL25 at 3400-3450. With the 300 The accuracy is at 3150 with the 200 accubond. The 140s are a breeze to shoot. I really like both but the 7 is a "little" easier to shoot accurately. I think you get more performance from the 300 though. Can't go wrong with either. Keep the barrels cool no matter what and they will last longer.
