I recently picked up a older Sendero 25-06 and it looks liek it has not been fired more than a box of shells or so through it. I took it to the range and accuracy was not nearly as good as suspected and as it heated up, the shot placement walked horizontally to the left quite a bit with each shot.
I took the stock off looking for anything that might affect accuracy and only a couple of minor things light a spot where the stock was making light contact and the owner previous must have slammed the bolt forward on a cartridge as there was some copper wedged into the bolt. I had not noticed it before. I doubt that these two things will help.
I am taking it to the range again with some loads I am working up to see if it has imprroved. If not, then I will probably have to bed the action.
I noticed elsewhere you had suggested skim bedding an Sendero action. What product would you suggest using?
In the end, I think I may have to have the action trued and throw on a aftermarket barrel.
Either way, I can not afford custom work every year so this gun juice stuff looks like it will make the return on investment worth it.
Doubly so if I can get the accuracy where I want it without aftermarket barrel
I will utilize it and then save my money for a new custom rig for a reach out and touch it caliber....
