Re: XHR vs Sendero

Look into the Vortex Viper HS LR FFP 6-24x50 with the MOA reticle. It's about the same price as the other Vortex, but I like the reticle better since I am a holdover windage kind of guy. I like my left and right to stay zero'd despite wind, so holdover works better for me in that aspect.

Also, the Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with the target turrets and mildot reticle is an excellent alternative. And both are excellent quality and very similar in quality, but I would venture to say the Zeiss has slightly better glass and reflective coatings. I have lots of time behind Zeiss scopes, but only a little time behind the Vortex scopes. But from what I see, they are very similar in quality.

Re: XHR vs Sendero

I would agree with the Sendero choice. That being said, I wanted the Sendero but couldn't afford it at the time. I found a xhr at Sportsman's Warehouse on clearance for about $650 a couple of years ago. It has been a great gun! It has taken 1 deer and 6 elk. I have it sighted in at 200 yards and use the factory remington scirroco tipped power level 3 150 grain bullets. I have taken the deer and two of the elk. The others have been taken by cousins and friends who have wanted to borrow it. I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for and no doubt about it, I think the sendero is the superior gun. But if you can find a .300 rum in the xhr for a descent price, don't let the crazy triangle barrel scare you away. I have had nothing but fun with mine!
