Re: Getting Started


Thanks for the note. My FFL buddy is looking for a Sendero
for me in either 300 WM or RUM. I will take which ever one he finds for me.
I am having my M700 280 rebarreled with a Hart 24" #5 flutted and chambered for 280 Rem AI. I think this will start me off in the right direction for LR shooting/hunting.
A Leupold 3.5-10 Mil Dot and a Nosler 160 gr AB at 3000 fps should reach out and touch something @ 600 yds+.

I also getting a Leoupold 4-14 Mil Dot for my M700LSS 338 RUM and have a serious killer for the bigger critters. I think the 225 gr AB's should work @ 1k yds.

Am I on the right track?

I would suggest going to a 26" on the 280 AI, will need the extra 2". Just do not see the need or usefullness of an AI in 24" barrel. Counterproductive, not sure it will be worth going up from a standard 280 for the money. Both will do 600 easy.

have your ffl buddy call Eds and negotiate a deal. Ed does not like guns to set, he moves them with very little markup.

Re: Getting Started


I called Directory Assistance to get Ed's number. It's 910-692-7936. He had one 300 UM Sendero for $779. What do you think of the 7mm UM Sendero? I'm new to lrh.com and found nothing by searching on the 7mm UM Sendero.

Are you guys condsidering the Sendero 300UM for bench or hunting?
