Re: remington sendero 2 Vs. Browning a-bolt target

I own three Sendero's. One is average shooter and two are great shooters. Would purchase another one if needed. I have owned Remingtons since 1968 and only had one that would not shot accurately.

I had a 7 mag sendero. If I did my part I consistently got .75" groups. Very nice gun and loved shooting it but did not like the palm swell at all.

Re: remington sendero 2 Vs. Browning a-bolt target

I am a Remington fan, so I would stick with a Sendero. They shoot sweet. Brownings are very good dont get me wrong but way more options for a Remington. I sold a sendero to a buddy of mine in 7MM and its a bug hole shooter out to 300+ with hand loads.

That's a very nice rifle but you probably have at least 1,500.00 more in it than it would take for someone starting out to buy a Sendero and have it bedded and floated.

Full customs are great but there just not for the average guy starting out.

Re: remington sendero 2 Vs. Browning a-bolt target

I have an A-bolt longrange hunter in 300rum for testing. I'm still several weeks away from shooting it but the customer is interested in how it does at 800 yards. I guess the real test is how I do at 800 yards.
Should be interesting. I have only owned 1 abolt myself and while I really liked the rifle, its accuracy was okay but not anything special.
Now Coopers, there's a horse of a different color.

Re: remington sendero 2 Vs. Browning a-bolt target

I own both a modified Sendero 7 RM and a modified Browning A-Bolt for my ultralight hunting. Both rifles shoot sub MOA, though the Sendero shoots much tighter groups. Point being, you'll most likely have work done on both rifles. With that in mind, typically Remmy's are much easier to modify.


I wouldn't necessarily compare the Sendero to the A-Bolt Target. The Sendero is perfectly suited to be a LR hunting rig, still light enough that carrying it in the field all day is not a problem. The A-Bolt Target at 13+ lbs is not something I'd like to haul around with me. Put rings, scope, bipod and sling on the A-Bolt Target and you're carrying close to 18+ lbs. Unless you just plan on hunting from a stand, I wouldn't want to carry this gun around all day. I think a better comparison would be the A-Bolt LR Hunter. Here are a few other things to consider:


Browning:
1. A-Bolt has a DBM that has to be modified to fit any load longer than SAAMI specs, specifically if you're loading just off the lands.
2. I do like the 60* bolt lift of the browning.3. Brownings glass bedding jobs are ****.
4. Made in Japan


Remington:

1. Love the palm swell, though others don't like it so much
2. Availability of aftermarket parts.
3. Made in the USA.
