    I need a 300 Ultra Mag and really can't afford a Sendero. I was wanting to get opinions on the all black SPS in 300 Ultra Mag. I can get one of those with a muzzle brake and brass for less than the Sendero. I like all black firearms anyway. Can this rifle be bedded and recrowned and shoot with the Sendero? Thanks for any input..

    Normaly NO!!!!

    But there are exceptions to everything .The problem is by the time you spend enough
    money to make it shoot you could have bought a Sendero or an accumark.

    If you spend your money on a rifle with a good stock and a heavy barrel you can allways
    have it rebarreled with out spending a lot of money.

    Normally to make a SPS shoot you have to replace the Tupperware stock and the barrel.

    Most gunsmiths use the SPS for doner rifles because they get a new 700rem action with
    floor metal and a good trigger for around $400.oo ( Bought separately they cost over
    $600.oo ).

    Just my 2 cents

    My SPS shot very well right out of the box, consistent 1/2" 3 shot groups with handloads...but it's only a .223


    Pity it looks like it was made by monkeys
