Sendero ammo advise

Recently acquired a new sendero in 7mm rem mag. I placed a vortex pst 6-24-50 ffp with night force rings and base. Being short on time with new twin girls im currently not interested in reloading so I bought some high grade factory ammo the nosler custom I think 154 grain and its the only grain they make. My riffle didn't like them at all. I know that their are plenty of shooters on this forum that have or know a shooter who owns this riffle. With the price of ammo I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction.

    00- i would adjust thrigger if you have not. i have some senderos. the most accurate and only factory ammo i have fired was Fed 180 tsx out of the 300 win mag. out the 7mm both the 140 accubond and the 168 berger were very accurate with handloads. you shooting elk , coyotes, targets??

    Thanks for the advise. Still really looking for that person that has been through the factory ammo to find the most accurate. Trigger is fine and plan on shooting targets, antelope and blacktail deer.

    hey 00,are you from California?If so you need copper bullets I think. anyway,I had a .308 win.for 20+yrs. They always come out with something new. You must decide what your needs are. 150for deer,165 for everything, 180 for elk,moose. But still your gun may shoot one ammo better in a certain loading.Invest some time and try 3 or more brands according to your price. Most expendsive is not only the best all the time. SST,Accubond give excellent groups in many calibers in my experience.

    Same here with the same rifle.

    My Sendero likes the 140 grain "Combined Technology" load from Wichnester, which is a ballistic tip in disguise. It also likes the HSM 168 grain factory loaded Bergers.
