Re: Is the Sendero SF II a good start on a LR rig ?
I have a rem ADL action blueprinted with a Lilja sendero contour barrel in 300rum for my long range rig. I settled on 200gr accubonds ahead of 95.5gr Retumbo in Nosler brass and CCI mag primer as my loading. I tried a 210gr sierras and 208 amax but the accubonds shot slightly better for me, with less vertical dispersion. Berger bullets are pretty scarce in my parts. I have been getting under 1 MOA groups out to 1000 yards (.3MOA under 400yards), for 5 shots. I am still saving up for a nightforce, right now I have a 2.5-10 bushnell elite 4200 on it. You can shoot a 1000 yards with only 10x, but I would like more magnification.
I have bagged a few deer with this setup but none at long range. I get setup and then something walks out under 100 yards, happened twice now, I can say the 300rum is alot of rifle for a deer at 30 yards.
