Look at Weatherby's MOA Varminter - very good shooters right out of the box.

Might want to consider the Rem PSS. Like the Sendero it uses an HS precision stock just with a palm swell. This same combination will also be a great canidate to accurize on down the road.

Re: Best shooting out of the box rifle

Savage do not make the model 116FSS IN 300 RUM. My understanding is they make it in the Model 116FSAK. Right?

I have been a Savage man for years. Why did I order a 300 RUM in Remington Sendero SF II yesterday? Looks? The stock?
Not sure... There's something about them senderos...

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
