curious...

How much money a remington custom shop sendero costs? buy one that way you cant be wrong, right? or buy another rifle with an acurracy warranty...maybe a weatherby?

Im form old mexico and a new remington 700 could cost plenty more than in the US(from 1200 to 2000 usd.), and if I were to buy a new rifle in the United States, You bet it would be a custom one. and belive me Im not in the Forbes magazine cover(though I wish, jajajaja).

spend once, plenty of grins later you will stop crying...

I'm not too sure how people are getting there info whether custom barrels are more accurate than sendero barrels. My sendero sfII shoots in the .2's consistently with berger vld's. My buddy's shoots in the .3's. How much better than that can you get for a $1000.00 gun. A barrel and chamber can get close to that.

Don't mean to be harsh here but watch this and if it is not clear then you may just need to keep using the 25 dollar factory tubes and hope for luck. This is a real eye opener to say the least.

There are a lot of good shooting Sendero,s and if you have one
then stick with it.

But you cant compare any factory barrel with a custom barrel just
because they shoot.

The factory does not take the time to make every barrel the same quality
and as a result maybe 1 out of 10 will realy shoot.

The custom barrel maker must make all of his barrels meet the same specs or he
would not stay in buisness very long because of the expense of a custom
build and the demands of the customer.

Most people that buy a factory rifle (sporter) are planing on using factory
ammo and are ok with 1&1/2" 100yrd groups.

The people that want more accurace normaly reload and want a high end
factory rifle with an accurace guarantee or at least a heavy barrel set up
like the sendero.

The barrel if the heart of the shooting system and no matter what you do
if the barrel is not good it will never shoot as well as a realy good one!!

Its easy to take a rifle that shoots 2 MOA to 1 MOA but harder to go from
1 MOA to 1/2 MOA and real hard to go from 1/2 MOA to 1/4 MOA and next
to impossible to go below 1/4 MOA with a factory barreled rifle.( it can be done
but not very often).

I would never take a factory barrel off with out trying it first,But my expectations
would not be as high as a custom barreled rifle.

I hope this answers your question

Boss Hoss. That's an incredible video, thanks for sharing. I would encourage everyone to take a couple minutes and look at it.
