The Remingtion stocks are very good and the Laminated Sendero stocks are even better.
I use a lot of these stocks and get great accuracy if bedded and pillar blocks are installed
properly ( The sendero allready has pillars and a bedding block but should be bedded anyway.
You can install a #5 (Lilja) contour with out much work in a 700 sporter stock and a #7contour
in a sendero with just a little opening up.
The 300RUM is a great round and with lighter bullets and lower pressures recoil can be tamed.
