Re: 7mmRUM with 30 caliber barrel

I guess my question is.... if you are convinced that Remington is the worst company out there, why did you buy a new rifle from them??

I have a new Remington 7mm RUm sendero

They are, without a doubt, the WORST company in the shooting industry.

VH11,

Now you have an excuse to buy a real nice barrel for it, already! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Or just rechamber it to 300 Ultra!

Gary, I think you are probably right, however I would not hesitate to buy a Remington for a custom buildup because first, I check them out real well, and second, the action will basically be a custom job and no longer a 700, per say, when it is done. If I wanted an out of the box shooter, it would be a Savage, period. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Gary,

You've got me, Varmint Hunter, mixed up with VarminthunterII.
Remington is the ONLY shooting industry manufacturer that has such unfriendly customer service policies that they receive daily complaints on various boards. The quality control over the last several years hasn't been anything to rave about either.

VH-

I stand corrected. My mistake.

However, I still think that Remington-bashing has become the "in" thing to do, with everyone jumping on the bandwagon.

I guess I'll just continue to keep them in business, as I'm like Brent. If they shoot (and plenty of them do), I'll shoot it as-is. If not, a fix is only a barrel away...

Seeing as how Remington will void the warranty for putting on the muzzle brake, for 250 bucks you could have your smith accurize it and rechamber to 300 Ultra and be on your way with a nice rifle. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

There's now way I'd send it back to remington even if they guaranteed an new barrel install for free, you would still have to pay to have the new barrel threaded again for the brake, and that is the same as you'd pay for the rechamber job.

By the way, I'd shop for another smith too, I think he should have spotted the 30 cal bore when doing the brake install for sure, it sure wouldn't instill any confidence in me as to his attention to details.

Re: 7mmRUM with 30 caliber barrel

Why does everyone want him to get rid of his 7mm RUM?
