    Outside the custom shop, I believe you are correct.

    Of all the stupid thing that remington ever did, I think that discontinueing the .338 RUM in Senduro has gotta be on the short list. I looked and looked for one when I was new to LR, and up here in Canada they are stupid hard to find. I landed up going to the XCR and am happy with it, but wish it was a senduro.

    Stupid Remington.

    Lack of foresight. Stupid remington. Now the .338 RUM is gonna eventually get phased out by the Lapua. Which is a shame because it fits standard actions way better.

    Nope, the xcr was made for a while, but the xcr2 isn't. They only make the sps and cdl in left hand, with limited caliber options.
    Kinda feels like I'm taking punch out of a punchbowl with a turd in it looking at the rem options.
