I'm going to try these in a first generation Sendero that was a 7RM that I just rebarrelled with a factory takeoff 300WM from another Sendero. I think it's 26" 1:10. But, I need to verify that.
The seller said it was low round count. But, I think it's been shot a lot as I can detect some throat erosion with just a magnifying glass. I traded a takeoff that was in better shape, but I was through with it and wasn't going to use it anyways.
I test fired it with some factory ammo and was about an inch at 100yds. If it'll do just a hair better than that with a .711 BC bullet, I'll be happy. Either way, I'll eventually put a proper custom barrel on it.
