I've read nothing but good things about the Sendero model, but I can't find much info about the cdl and bdl models. I would rather buy the Sendero, but funds are limited to under $1000 for a bare rifle. I can get the bdl for $820 or the cdl for $845 compared to about $1200 for the Sendero. Does anyone here own one of the less expensive models in 300 RUM who can give me their opinions? Edit: I forgot the XCR II is available for $835. Any info on that would be great too. I am leaning toward it anyway because I have a tendency to hunt in a lot of rain, sleet, and snow.
