Re: Just Starting Out....Questions

I would not spend any more money on the rifle until you can run good quality hand loads through it. I have yet to see a rifle not get considerably better with hand loads tuned to the rifle.

Sound advice. With proper tuning of handloads, will you be able to see the potential of your Sendero. If you are not yet handloading, try a couple different types of factory ammunition, custom if you like.

There are many gunsmiths who offer simple accuracy packages that can help the stubborn rifle, if yours is. Here is a link to just one of the sponsors on this site that offers this package at a reasonable price. You can look this over to get an idea of what they offer.

Burrdock,
JMO, but I think you'll get better results, from even the factory Remington Scirocco's, if you try an independent, padded front rest and a rear sand bag, and concentrate on your form. Not to dis you or the Lead Sled but I don't think it will "return to battery" everytime like most think. It's was designed to tame recoil not to shoot one hole groups. JohnnyK.

Plus one, Factory Scirocco's shot very well out of my Sendero 300 RUM.
