Re: Remington Sendero 6.5-284

I am a huge fan of Remington, but I gave up trying to figure out the reasoning behind the things they do along time ago. Take supporting their own cartridges for example. Remington doomed my precious 280 rem from day one with bad marketing and have just recently started offering the cartridge in more then one model. They haven't put all that much effort into promoting the 7mm-08. They come up with a great cartridge like the 260 and you can't buy a single M700 right now in that caliber. Don't see very many 7mm or 300 SUAMs available either (I understand the 300 because of the 300WSM but the 7?!?).

The 700 lineup is just as bad. The drop great models like the Alaskan Ti and add crap like the XHR. They overstretch the line-up with poorly thought out limited editions like Buckmasters and Bone Collector. Great models like the Mountain, Sendero, and CDL SF are offered in a few limited calibers. I could go on and on but you get the point. I was hoping the economy would force them to rethink their business strategy and get back to basics but I guess not.

I could not believer they dropped the 25-06 in the Sendero. It was a hot seller in the eastern part of NC for bean field shooting of deer.

No kidding! There are still quite a few of them floating around on Gunbroker, but they want top dollar.

the new Titaniums are heavier and slightly bigger. The old Titaniums were very, very light. The 300saum I have in the old version shoots lights out bughole groups. I wish I would have gotten one in 7mm Saum. They are way over priced now.

Re: Remington Sendero 6.5-284

I had a titanium in a .270 win about 4 years ago, traded it off, wish I wouldn't have done that, the action sure would come in handy for my next build......
