    Have a chance to buy a "like new" Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW. I think price should be right and it is one of the older matte stainless Sendero's with very low round count(40 to 50 rounds). I am looking for a good 500yd elk rifle for a hunt to New Mexico this year. Any opinions on this?

    Sounds like a nice move and it's certainly enough gun if you don't mind lugging it around.

    7mm is a caliber that has a very high bc and a large and growing bullet selection. It's a man's caliber, capable of taking game with accuracy and power. Next up, 300 wm and then 338 lapua, everyone should have a 7mm stw. Sendero's typically are fairly easy to turn into a shooter, rem got it right with them. They do have collector value too, anyone on here knows that. This site has some incredibly bright and talented people too, go Sendero if the price is right, they are keepers. Take care of it and be safe.
