Sendero II or PSS

I can't decide. I am going to buy a 300 RUM in a Sendero II or a PSS. I shoot a PSS in a 308 for work and like the feel. That would be a plus for cheek weld and comfort. I like the look of the Sendero but looks aren't what makes the rifle when it comes to shooting. I know Remington has some issues with barrel roughness, so I am looking for reviews from people shooting either one in an ultra mag or a 300 win mag.

    hey I had a friend that had a Sendero that would shoot a dime size group out to 300yards.all he did to the rifel was that he put a muzzel brake on it.but with his reloads he made a beleaver out of me.but this is a rifel I know of so I can not speak for another.but it does sound like it to me that you will have to really make a good call on to what you want.so I hope this is something that can help you out. John and yea it was a 300wm

    My first handloads through my Sendero II in .300 RUM gave me a group of 0.477". This was just my break in rounds.

    Tang, my 300 looks just like yours and groups as good, but i have a 2.5-10X56 Nikon Gold on mine, tracks great and has withstood about 400 rounds so far with no brake, i dont like a brake, but also took yur advice about Ruger 77 for son, dropping off next week, trigger work, 2.5lbs, full bed. What ya think? by the way, i spazzed and missed a 180 class buck at 130yrds this weekend, AH S--t.

    I am glad your Sendero's shoot... Now I wish I could hear from some PSS owners. I do appreciate the info.

    Sorry I only have input on a Sendero II 300win. Absolutely love it. About 30 rounds thru it so far - still in load development - You can cover a 3 shot group with a quarter at 200 yards. Have not had an opportunity to shoot further yet. Mine has a Zeiss 4.5x14x44 RZ 800 scope on it, Jim at Center Shot Rifles adjusted the trigger to about 2.5#, skim bedded, lapped the lugs, installed a wyatts box mag and put his CSR break on it. Its a dream to shoot. So far it likes 185 grain bullets with h-1000 powder and cci 250 mag primers.
