the 300 win mag 5-r is basically a sendero. not fluted. i think it as a 24" barrel.

The difference is the 5r barrel I have both sendero and the 5r. Senderos have 6 groove barrel 5r is 5

I could be wrong, but I thought all Sendero's had a 26in barrel. All I've ever seen has had a 26in barrel. I still say that out of the box an on a budget a Sendero is the way to go. As far as caliber it's up to the shooter.

Senderos do have 26" barrel and I believe are all long action calibers 5r comes with 20" and 24" barrels

You are right as far as the action. Guess I've been out of the loop to long, but what is a 5r. That's a new one on me or I've seen one and didn't know what it was. Thanks!

Re: Remington vs Custom/7mm vs. 300/What would you do?

I am definitely looking into the sendero, 5R win mag, and building custom on the rem700 action I already have and it brought me to this question: will I be able to shoot the 30cal Berger bullets i.e. 200gr on up vld bullets or will they be too long with these actions? Let me know if I am not understanding this correctly. I will shoot factory ammo for the short term but will reload in the future and want to use the vld bullets since I have read and seen good things about them. Thanks for all the help guys
