remington sendero 2 Vs. Browning a-bolt target

Anyone have any experience with either gun? i'm in the market for either a sendero in a 300 win mag or the a bolt target in a 300 wsm. So far I like the longer 28in barrel and adjustable comb of the a-bolt but wanted to hear your opinions on the two. The rifle would mainly be used for long range target shooting but deer and elk are on the menu in the fall.

Thanks Brent

Not tough for me on this. The browning is too much of a gamble,some shoot good and some don't. The sendero's are a excellent platform to work with.Most sendero's shoot excellent or can be worked with.

I've owned and shot several of both. Neither is an absolute on accuracy. However, I would probably give the nod to the Sendero just because of the after-market parts available for the 700 action.

Savage Long Range Hunter in 300 winmag.
Accurate
Cheek piece
Muzzle break

No brainer.

Of the two options listed, I have no experience with those exact models. I would give my nod to the Remington because of aftermarket availability. That, and I know there are a ton of smiths that work on remington actions.

I've bought my last sendero.

I've also bought my last $800+ factory rifle.

Last abolt I shot was way way more accurate than any sendero I've shot (4-5)

I wouldnt speak in absolutes. I think with either a pillar bed and some handloads will easily get you to MOA or better.

But my answer if you don't want to work on the gun would be Savage. Great little guns and my friend had one that only shot at about 1.3 MOA with factory ammo. He called savage and they said send it back. A month later he had a brand new rifle waiting at his door step. That rifle shot at .8 MOA with factory hornady ammo.
