The Remington Sendero is a very good choice and also the new Long range savage. Any of the rounds you mentioned would be fine. It's basically personal preference for your type of hunting and what you are comfortable shooting.......Rich

If you can find a rem 700 pss, that is what i would go with, no question about it. They come in .308, 7mm mag, and .300 wm. I have a 7mm mag and am working on getting a .300 wm. Just my opinion though.

I would look at a Remington Sendero or a Weatherby Mark V in 7mm STW i have the latter and love it i know a couple people who have the Sendero and they shoot great. Also the new Savage is supposed to be a real shooter as well. I would go with something in the 7mm family better BC bullets.

I own a stock 300wm 700 pss. Out if the box with 190 Sierra match kings it shot 1/2" groups at 100yds and 3.75" groups at 600 yards.

I've always felt the pss is a better weapon because of feel and operation over the sendero. It's literally identical but it just feels different in some instances. It operates truer and cleans easier. If you look hard. There were a few made in 300 rum also not too Long ago.

Well you already know where I stand. Savage all the way. You can't beat the performance that Savage will provide out of the box. I will admit that the synthetic stocks that are non-HS Precession stocks are very tupperwareish, but the new Accu-Stock takes up that slack and makes a real shooter. You buy any Remington, Howa, Vanguard, they will shoot, but you have to do trigger work. Depending on the model you may even have to get the action bedded or pillars put in. You could always buy an after market stock, but then you could have just bought a Savage in the first place. Just my opinion.
