Re: Info for Guys Just Starting Out.
Can't see a similarity with Remington's rifles. The Sendero is essentially a long-action varminter (for big game hunting) and the VS uses a short action for varminting mainly. Sendero is chambered from .25-06 up to the Ultramags, VS is only available in .223, .22-250 and the mighty .308 Win. They both use quite heavy barrels, much closer to the Winchester Stealth in diameter. Not aware of Rem. making a Coyote type rifle, although you can get the VS in laminated stock but it has significantly more barrel on it.
I am about to do a head-to-head test of a new VS verses a new Stealth, both in .308 Win. and should have some fun comparing the two shooters. Have done a lot of shooting with the Stealth and it is a pretty decent out of the box rifle.
The break-in on the VS has been pretty impressive, it has shot some sub 1/2 inch 3-shot groups with BHA Match 175's. Have heard the rumours and bitching about Remington, haven't seen anything out of the ordinary (they still haven't figured out that someone should tighten the damn stockbolts before they drop the rifle into the box but that is a complaint with damn near every new rifle I checkout).
