    Give us some more details....is it a factory sendero? custom barrel? stock? trigger?

    Cartridge...7mm??

    What's your intended use?

    I'm waiting on my next custom build to be finished (months away). So I must live vicariously through your finished stick.

    except i had a trigger job and glass bedding done.
    Ill be using it for deer antilope(if we can draw a tag) bear and maybee elk
    and lots of rock chucks out to 1000 yards or so
    I have a place picked out for a bear bait site this fall that will put me just short of 600 yards

    thankls
    we have been playing in the longrange for awhile
    My savage is good to 500 yrads
    my duagthers ruger is good out to 600yrds
    and my shooting buddy has a sendero wearing a zeiss in 300WM that we have out to 1000 on metal targets and a rock chuck at 760 yrds
    I cant wait to see what this new stick will do

    Nice rifle, I have a 7mm STW that could be it's twin. Even the trigger job and glass bedding. My rifle shoots great! When I shoot out the barrel, i plan on really going through it and making it fully custom.

    Nice looking rig. A stock version is usually pretty accurate. With trigger and bed job it should be really accurate. Let us know how it shoots. Enjoy.

    Nice rig. I have the same gun in 300 win. Trigger job, bedded, lapped lugs, new firing pin mechanism and a break. The gun easily shoots 1/2 moa and better if I can do my part.
    Enjoy it - they are great guns.
