    Like it says I think I got a deal. I got a first gen Remington Sendero in 270 win that looks brand new not a mark on it for only 475! When I walked in and saw the the price on it I had to have it. Now I can't wait to get out and shoot it, I already have some 150 gr vlds to load up for it.

    That's a good deal!

    Consider bedding it first, then go have fun!

    Wish I could have seen it first! Even though I know Remington made the first Sendero in .270Win, I've never run across one. Good luck with it and hope it's a shooter. JohnnyK.

    Best way to determine if you got a deal is to send the rifle to me for testing! :D

    Well, how'd she shoot?

    I have a 270 Sendero as well, all I did was bed it and now she's a real shooter.

    I don't have a 270 but I have a buddy that does. He shoots the 150vld.

    I have tried the Matrix 165's. Very touchy, some days it shoots great, others it won't even hit the paper? I think the Matrix is very sensative to the temp.

    Berger 150's shoot great, that was my go to load until I heard about the Matrix.

    Sierra Match Kings in 135 also shoot really well for paper. Too light for big game.

    Gun shoots great for the range or even in a stand, but humping it through the mountains is not very fun...

    Good luck

    Finally had time to go out and see how it shot. Didn't get time to make any handloads in it, so I tried some factories just to see how it did. Heres the first 3 shot group at 100 with Federal 130 gr. softpoints.
