my friends and i have a bunch in different calibers they are excellent. ALL the magnums have a break. get one and shoot it. put a krieger on it later if you choose. while you wait 15-18 weeks for the barrel you could be shooting.

Re: SUGGESTIONS for 300 RUM????

hello working a 7 rum as we speak. really like the 300 rum and i would do the 300 rum! had my lilga barrel just come in and making out shoot the 300 rum at long range, lots of work and education to do this. High BC bullets 7mm 180berger and 190matrix type bullets. having to do some serious work to outshoot the 300rum in long range. the heavier bullets for 300 rum have good BC and long range Good BC and weight is your friend. The reason i did the 7mm rum is because i came into a deal and couldn't pass up, was shopping for a 300 rum at the time. good luck and have a good evening. waiting on a custom barrel sucks but necessary! a break will be nice on the 300 rum!

Suggestions for 300 rum would be to go up to a 338 rum. Better BC bullets, higher velocities given higher bullet weights and all around better external ballistics. Not to mention the 338 rum is alot easier on barrel life. Downsides are heavier recoil, and factory ammo availibility. However if you reload thats not an issue.

I like that advice.

The .338 RUM (in a Sendero SF please ) I think would compliment my twin Sendeo 7mm STWs!

Re: SUGGESTIONS for 300 RUM????

I have two 300RUM Sendero's both SF II's I am about to pick up my first one from the gunsmith from getting a brake installed. I had to send the second one back to Remington and they are sending it thru their custom shop I got a phone call apology and a big list of the the stuff they are doing for the problem i had with the rifle. I was amazed the responded and more amazed they admitted it was their problem and that they would be fixing it and all the other stuff they are doing. I am building the second one for my daughter so a good BRAKE will be mandatory she does not like recoil but she has some growing to do...
