XHR vs Sendero

Hey guys, been looking at the remington XHR and the sendero, both in either 300wm or 300rum, I have friends that have the sendero and swear buy them, I dont know anyone who owns a XHR with the triangular barrel but they spark my attention, im hunting big game up to 1000 yrds at times, any ideas on which i should go with ?????

ive got a couple buddys that had the triagle barreled rems and ended up trading them off because they never found accuracy with them. Id go sendero hands down if given the choise.

Re: XHR vs Sendero

The HXR sounds interesting in Remington's writeup. I clicked to specifications page and every model listed was discontinued.

Centerfire Rifle - Model 700 XHR - Remington Centerfire Rifles

Very strange to show a rifle in their lineup with discontinued for every variant.

The one sendaro I owned, a 7 RUM, shot very accurately too.

Re: XHR vs Sendero

If the XHR is discontinued, looks like your question just got answered for you.

Funny part is, I was gonna suggest the Sendero anyway. Love mine! They're damn-accurate for a factory rifle. My SF 7mm STW will shoot 1 ragged hole cloverleafs @ 100.

Re: XHR vs Sendero

Thanks for the input!! I think it will be the sendero! Now just down to optics was looking at the vortex 6.5-20x50 ffp, not to hard on the pocket but will it withstand 300wm or 300 rum!
