Re: Build off of a sendero

There is one other possibility that might work for you.

Shilen makes and sells pre chambered, threaded and contoured barrels.

They chamber about .015 deep so that all you have to have is a lathe
to take a little off of the sholder to headspace.(Simple)!!!!

You can get a chrome moly or a stainless including there select match (this
is the one I would recomend).

Just a thought

If the gun was a 270 winchester your going to need to open the bolt face and instal a sako extractor.

HOLD ON!!

Those rem 270 Sendero's are rather rare and can bring a fair price if they are in good shooting condition. I've had my eye out for a used 270 Sendero for over a year now, and haven't had a chance to grab one. If you decide to build a WSM sendero, I would reccomend selling the 270 (to me if possible), then picking up a sendero with the Magnum bolt face to use as a donor action.

Re: Build off of a sendero

MSU, I got one last year, like new not more than a dozen rounds down the tube. Mounted a weaver tactical made 3 loads using 3 different bullets and the thing shot groups from 1/4 to 3/4 minute. Haven't touched a thing on it including the trigger. I haven't put 30 rounds through it. It was too easy now it just sits in the safe.
