Re: Howdy from TX - New here
The reason I mentioned Sendaro, is your pretty much assured of out of the box accuracy. Now, with what I call the standard remys VLS included it can be a roll of the dice on out of box accuracy not to say they won't shoot decently out to several hundred yards but IMHO when you start 4-500+ yards it's likely to be a different ballgame. If so there are somethings you can do to improve accuracy and the more you do the better it should shoot assuming you have the skills to go with it. Good accuracy is about 1 moa or approx 1" groups at 100 yards, approx 2" at 200 yards and so 5" groups at 500 yards. It will take good ammo, skills and a rifle up to it. Some things that can be done to improve rifle accuracy for example are bedding the stock or go with aftermarket stock, trigger job or replacement, recrown, rebarrel, true the action and so on. Having said all that a VLS at 1/2 retail is hard to pass up and the half you saved could cover some of the cost to make any improvements if needed. I'm hoping others will share their thoughts and any reccomendations on VLS or other similar priced rigs. Keep us posted on what you eventually decide.
