I had a 300 Win. Mag. Sendero and had some problems with it.
Come to find out the base mount holes in the action was drilled off center. I put on some Leupold rings and cured my left to right problem but was trying to make it a 1000 yd rifle. All I could get was 15 moa bases in the leupold and it just wasn't enough elevation to get me there.
Had a Broughton 5C barrel and a Badger muzzle brake put on it and the base holes fixd with 20 moa seekins bases with Badger rings and I am in fine now.
To tell the truth, if I just had the base hole fixed and barrel trued it probably been just fine. The way I looked at it at the time was if I was going to send it off I was going to trick it out some.
Never had done anything like that before so what the heck. It's done now and I really like it, so I guess that is what is important anyway. Had Chris Mathews in Missouri to do the job and he done great, would recommend him to anyone.
