Re: Sendero II or PSS

I also have a Sendero, although it's an older model in .270 Winchester, and I also have had excellent accuracy with it. Best 3-shot group so far has been .187". Ironically, the worst group during load development was the group just prior (1.321"), and was exactly the same load. I shot 8 groups with 130gr Ballistic Tips during load development, and the avg. group size was .662" (this included the group where I jerked the trigger).

Shot three more groups doing a quick development with 90gr Sierra HPs, and the average size was .541" (all three groups were between .5-.6").

With all that said, comparing a PSS to a Sendero doesn't seem to compute too well in my mind. On one hand you have a Rem. 700, with a heavy barrel, mounted in a HS Precision stock. On the other hand, you have a Rem. 700, with a fluted heavy barrel, mounted in a HS Precision stock.

Of the two, I would probably grab the Sendero II, for the flutes and stainless action/barrel. Beyond that, I don't think there is much of a difference.

Thanks for all the info on your Senderos. I am leaning that way since no one can tell me about a PSS.

Its too cold and wet outside for me to continue load work just yet. But I already do not regret my decision to go for the SF-II. I love the large palm swell on the new stock. With my long fingers everything just feels perfect, and this gun shoots amazingly. So far, with my break in handloads, and even some older "managed recoil" 150gr bullets, I have yet to have it make a 100 yard group over an 1".
