Thanks for the replies.
What caliber and bullet weights are you working with? Is the barrel a standard light sporter weight? Magnum Sporter? Heavier?

Have you had success in the past at precision shooting with this or any other rig?

What is your experience level?

We're here to help but it really helps to have more background or we're just shooting in the dark in our attempts to do so.

GCG- the bdl/lss and sporter weight rifles will shoot good groups. the senderos are easier to get a good load/group. i do not have a 300 rum . my brother does. it is not fun working up loads because of the recoil and muzzle blast. i always wear both muffs and puffs at the range.
