Once again thanks for the input the more help the better the choice i make.
Yeahhh i totally agree that alot of the people on this site are very pleased with the sendero, but not everybody has the same opinion and ive seen loads of good reviews for that rifle but the xcr has several things which are appealling to me the 40x trigger free floating barrel with trinite encoding and the stock.
Ive been summing up these helpful tips and I am certainly going in the magnum direction, not all targets are going to be at extreme distance but i would rather take a 800 yard shot with confidence in a hard hitting round which will drop the target quickly.
And for a custom rifle i will look into that for sure, and for the huskemaw i kinda sensed the glass would be bad but its the simplicity of the thing which makes it what it is. I will check out all of the suggested optics manufacturers asap.
Thanks - Jay
