Re: input wanted!!!

Bump on the sendero. the HS stock has an aluminum bedding block so no pillars needed. I would still bedded it, a little devcon goes a really long way. Look on the net there are plenty of sights that tell you how to do it. One trick on the HS rough up the aluminum before bedding so the devcon doesn't flake off. If you are purchasing the gun new, try burnishing the X-Mark trigger that comes in the gun before you actually spend more money. If you like the trigger that's more money you have to spend on your Night Force you will need it!!

Re: input wanted!!!

You sound like a perfect candidate for a 6.5x284. Everything you ask for it has and much more than the 257 WB. Also, it is gaining enormous popularity and if you ever have to sell it, there will be many buyers. It way outperforms a 257 wb in all categories including mild kick. Put a break on it and it's like a 22lr. sort of... Cheaper loading too.

At this point I can't afford to reload so having a gun chambered for a wildcat caliber is kinda out of the picture. That was also the problem with the 257, factory ammo runs $70 a box. Once I finish college I plan on starting to reload as everyone tells me after the initial cost of setting up you save a good bit of money
