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