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

SuperLite,
No, absolutely not. I have only shot the "older" version Sendero's. I shoot the 7mmMag in a 700P right now. I traded a Sendero for that and so far haven't shot it alot. I have worked up a 140gn TSX load @ 3250fps that prints in the .4" range. The 7mag Sendero that I traded shot in the .2-.3 range religiously, but the barrel was almost on its last leg.
I guess it depends on how big a boy you are as to when a muzzle break is or isn't required. Recoil is subjective and I don't care for a lot of it. The RUM's have more than I care for, other people don't mind them. I broke my neck in a motorcycle accident four years ago and don't want to have that happen again while at the range!

I have owned two Savage's 110 FP (.223 and 7mm Mag) that were incredible shooters and could hang with the Sendero's for less initial money. I invested in aftermarket triggers and never liked the "Tupperware" stocks, but to each his own. Anyway hope this helps. JohnnyK.

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

Can't help you with the Ultra. I have two Senderos(300SAUM SFI and 7RM SFII) and one 700P 300WM. They will all shoot less than 1/2" @ 100 for three shots but, the 700P has turned in quite a few .25 and less as well as a few .6s at 200. I've been stocking up on components for the 700p as I've mostly just done load development. I've got 600 190 MKs, 10lbs of H4831, and several 1000 215 GMMs. Looking foward to seeing what she'll do at 300 and 400+.

There's rumors floating around that Remington uses better grade barrels in the 700P line-up but, like I said they are rumors to the best of my knowledge.

I can say that both the Sendero SFII and the 700P are very fine factory rifles.

Good Luck

I can second that - I have owned three 700Ps, (when they were called 700 "PSS").

A kinda rough in the finish department, but all three shot well.

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

had 300 ultru! awsome gun! groups started opening up on me at 650 rnds 7 ultra burns about same powder as 300! 7 ultra is awsome also! I went with 7 mag now, I think barrel will last a little longer (I hope). 1/2 a dozen of one or the other! I think a guy needs one of each! WHY NOT? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
