Re: Remington Sendero Or Sako Hunter 75 ?????
What you may have been experiencing with the TRG-S is the recoil lug problem I have read about. I didnt know about it till about a week ago when I read it on here. I havent had the problem yet with mine and I have about 250 rounds through her. My loads run about right at 3400 but soon will be in the 3700 range. If my groups start to open up the first thing I will look into is going to be the recoil lug. The Model 75 has a different configuration than the TRG-S and does not have this problem. I would suspect that when your freinds had their bbl changed the smith probably did some glassing work as well which will help fix the recoil lug problem. Sako has always been known for their high quality bbl's, yah of course a custom bbl is going to be better but no way is a factory rem bbl of any kind better than the Sako bbl. Rem's quality as of the last few years has been if'y at best. Fit and finish between the two isnt even in the same relm. JMHO
