Looking to buy a new rifle this year, and would love some expert advise on what I want/need.

1)Stainless,fluted,synthetic.
2).30 cal, perferably magnum.
3)Hunt comfortably, but I shoot about 4 times a month off a bench w/ friends.
4)800-1000 yds.
5)Rate of twist??
6)Want something personal, different.
7)Hunt deer,elk,etc.
8)And most importantly. New excuse to tell the wife why I "need anougher gun!!" LOL


TIA..sakofan..

You'd better put a brake on that .300 RUM! I'd get a Vais and have it threaded onto the end of the barrel.

I've got a camo-synthetic, which Remington made several years agot for a short time in 7RM. Cool looking gun, catches eyes at the range, and great for hunting. Everything buth the bolt and trigger are camo.

"Honey, I need a good hunting gun (camo) so I can stalk up on the game better, and longer range...."

Had a brake on my Sendero too, Mark. Made a great rifle better.

Not sure if I want a AI 1.5 stock and all that or not.

Was thinking about a tacticle rifle, but that wouldnt allow me to hunt very well. I like to walk/stalk.
Mark, loved the "camo excuse" LOL.
All ready tried that one!!

Maybe anougher Sendero is the answer..sakofan..

For 800-1000yds you dont need any more punishment than a 300wsm will give you--no need for the RUM IMO.

try a Savage 110fp in 300wm, it has accutrigger, pillar bedding, heavy 24" barrel, the synthetic stock i would switch for maybe a Chaote Varminter. They don't make it in a 300rum yet but down the road re chamber it to 300rum, or just get a 300rum barrel and swap when you want

ps. long-range stalking = oxymoron

LOL ......

Have you looked at an HS Precision rifle? 1/2 MOA accuracy guarantee, varmint or sporter configuration. I have a blueprinted Remington SA that I am debating having a rifle built on, or selling and going with an HS. I just don't know how to ease my wife into the idea that the 22-250 I just bought is only an intermediate range rifle at best, and my .300 Jarrett is only suitable for elk, and I NEED another.....

I'm pretty sure I just saw a savage in 300 RUM this weekend. I am having the same dilemma, and am looking toward the 700 pss and FN SPR in 300 wsm personally. Good luck, and keep us informed.

Savage makes the 300rum in a 116fsak, 116fss,110gpx3, 111fxp3, and 116fxp3, but I really like there tactical model 110fp but it only comes in .223, .308, .30-06, 300wm

Well, thanks for all the responses.

Looks like Iam going to get a Sendero .300WM, or .300RUM, S/F, from a few guys online. Still finding out some more info on them, because they are used..sakofan..
Thanks for all the responses. Be nice to have a Sendero back at the house.
