Thread Hijack Alert!
Christopher. If you dislike BOSS so much, contact Kevin Knight at High Performance Gunsmiths. I believe he once told me he could easily make a threaded protector cap that would go over BOSS.
Hijacking over.

Original post.
I believe you have to look at the rest of your arsenal to make a decision. The Sendero is obviously going to the be better long range rifle and more consistent performer. If however you don't have a larger rifle and it is going to serve more than just the long range role then a lighter weight rifle can be considered.
Based on my arsenal it would hands down be the Sendero.

Thanks quiethunter, the boss is too loud for the 3006. The recoil from that gun is way too small to need it. I appreciate the info. I think that I would definitely go with the sendero.

Just to clarify -

The BOSS is just the barrel weight that attempts to tune a factory load to the barrel just like a hand loader attempts to do.

The muzzle brake is what makes the gun loud. But the benefit is reduced recoil. Trade offs! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Everyone I have talked to says that they only use the CR on BOSS equipped rifles.

I have decided on the sendero [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I have both and each has their strengths and weaknesses. The bolt in the A-Bolt is oustanding, the stock is the worst, BOSS- big deal. On the Sendero the workmanship leaves a lot to be desired but it's real strength is you can get any type of aftermarket component for it - want a tactical stock, no problem. Want a picatinny rail for the remington, no problem. Try to get one of those for the Browning and it's like pulling teeth.

Sometimes I think I should have got a Sako, I hear nothing but good about those.

Re: A bolt ss boss or sendero sf

I have handled both, and shot both, the A-Bolt, and the Sendero. If you are looking for Accuracy, the Sendero gets the Nod HANDSDOWN!! But, if you need a light, hunting rifle you can carry around, the A-Bolt, is nice. But,i would not let 1-2 pounds make your decision for you. When it came to grouping, the A-Bolt, can't hold a candle to the Sendero. My best group with my Sendero 300WM was .3 the best i could get with the a bolt was right around .7. Both are good, I just prefer the Sendero in my safe.
