Remington M-700 Sendero in 7mm Rem. Mag.

Shot the new Sendero today, must say it is a nice shooting rifle. Sixty rounds of Black Hills Ammo, 140 Accubonds and 162 A-MAX. Had three shots touching at 100 with the Accubonds. Shot the A-Max at 400 yards on my steel LV targets and they were very accurate. Too early to talk numbers but this is a nice shooting rifle.

Trigger was good. Barrel is heavily fluted, black finish in the bottom of the flutes, uniform markings on the crown after shooting. Stock is a real surprise. Prominent palm swell, excellent handling fore-end, tapered to the barrel, wedge shaped if looked at from the muzzle. Two front studs, one was loose. Action screws tightened to at least 65 inch-pounds since my snap-wrench hardly moved. Trigger is so reasonable I am leaving it as-is. Crisp, very little creep, just a bit heavy but definitely not 7-8 pounds.

Put a new USO low power variable on it, something like 1.8-10. Nice scope but not enough time to really wring it out. Used a Badger Ord. base and the USO rings that came with the scope. Excellent fitting rings, easy to put together and can be centered to the line of bore. Got the rifle onto the steel at 400 and proceded to beat it up nicely. Had several shooters show up, all agreed this is a comfortable, accurate rifle that is a lot of fun to shoot.

Black Hills Gold was very accurate in this rifle.

Really like the palm-swells and pistol grip feel, plus the new fore-end design is excellent. Surprises everyone with how light the rifle is. Stainless action looks good, no signs of sloppy workmanship. This rifle is a shooter.

Ian M,
I've been waiting to hear something about them, when you say the "new" you have to be referring the "Sendero SF II". What do you think the street price will run? Will you be doing any reloading and more testing for it?
Thanks for sharing.

I just got my hands on this one, intend to shoot it a bunch. First thing is to get some drops and info for an upcoming hunt, then try some reloading etc. Will keep you informed. This rifle really likes the Black Hills Match loading of 162 A-Max's, and their 140 Accubonds. We were making head-shots on a very small steel target at 400 yards consistently. Perfect conditions, no wind and nice light yesterday.

Thanks Ian,
From what you've seen so far, would you recomend glass bedding it? or both, Glass and pillar bedding?
Thanks.
