Sendero or Savage LRH?

For an out of the box shooter, what do you guys think will deliver the most? The savage LRH or the Remmy? ( Caliber will be 7mm Rem Mag or 300 win mag ) I will be reloading for it, but not allot of "snake oil" Thanks!

Re: Sendero or Savage LRH?

Either should do ok but I think savage is using better barrels these days and the modern savage is usually more accurate out of the box. This is coming from a self proclaimed savage nut (pun intended) so.........for what it's worth, Good luck.

Re: Sendero or Savage LRH?

I just bought two sendero's in the last month and I have a few savages to say the least. I would have to give the edge to the savage, BUT they should both be able to shoot .5 MOA with custom loaded ammo. Some Remington's are really good some are ok, but all the savages seem to perform really well out of the box.

Hey Dragman, what calibers did you buy? I have owned at one time or another about every sendero, except25-06, .270, .264,and 7 RUM. The one that was the most amazing was the "black" version. That one was in 7mag, and would .2's at 200 any day, any where. But my favorite, is/ was in 7 STW. Another mentionable was the .300 SAUM. That thing was a shooter out of the box. I even had one in .300 Weatherby mag. I only got that because I was trying to buy a Ultra Mag, and they were back ordered. It shot so accurate, that when theUltra did become avail, I didn't know if I shoul bother. ( I did anyway, you can't have too many). Enjoy, and I hope you got 2 good ones. AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL, ...7 STW

Re: Sendero or Savage LRH?

My two sendero's are a 300win, and a 300RUM in a sender II the 300win is a custom one but the RUM is all factory.
I have or have had savages in these calibers in the last year:
260 LRPR
6BR LRPV
111 HUNTER 7mm
110 270
110 BA 338 lapua

I have had an issue or two with some of them but they all shot as good as you could exspect for factory.

I don't think you can go wrong with either one. For me it came down to caliber selection and the Savage won with 6.5x284. The Sendero is going to cost you more "snake oil."

LoL, Thanks for all replys. What I meant by "snake oil" is that I will not be applying any to the project. Probably shoot the 168 Berger VLD Hunters and work a load up and leave it alone. I won't ( famous last words I reckon ) No new barrels, stocks triggers etc.
