    I am looking at the Remington Sendero SF II and the Tikka T3 varmint stainless in 300 WM. Which gun would you choose and why?

    The Sendero,because the M-700 is the most custimised of all comercial actions and when that barrel is toast any smith worth his salt can build an extremely accurate rig with that action,and the stock ain't bad either

    +1 on the sendero. They are pretty good from the get go also! After the bbl is shot out, a good smith can really maximize its potential as has been pointed out already.

    What these guys said 100%. I absolutely love mine, and I have the older model.

    I suggest the 300 WM 5r tactical 26" in the Rem 700 very sweet rifle

    Rem 700 because of so many aftermarket parts for it

    Go for the sendero! Better stock, longer barrel 26'(!!) and no issues with the recoil - lugs. That's something Tikkas and Sakos sometimes are suffering of, especially if you are using a more powerfull calibre than 308W more frequently. gun)

    Yep, add one more. For the money you just can't do better.

    Youngest son bought a used Rem 700 in that caliber. Stainless/ synthetic with a pathetic factory scope. Cleaned it before the first range session and maybe three wet patches and the barrel was clean. The <2" eye relief of the scope slammed both of us every shot so that would explain it showing up on the used gun rack almost unfired.

    New 3-9 X 50mm scope and rings and that gun is amazing! Have a friend with a Tikka in 7mm RemMag and it is nice but bottom line: "A Tikka and Rem 700 show up at the local used gun rack..." The Remington 700 goes home with me.
