    I am currently looking at buying a sendero 300 RUM. I am writing this forum to ask the gunsmiths out there who have bought this gun, how well is it built? What is the best groups you have seen at 100 yards? I can't decide to buy this gun for $1100 or build a custom 300 rum? Any suggestions?

    The Sendero is one of the better shooting factory rifles sold. and some will shoot 1/4 MOA others
    may have trouble shooting 1MOA with out lots of ammo testing.

    They are basically good rifle and if they don't shoot well they are a fine candidate for a custom
    barrel because they have everything needed to build a custom rifle on.

    The main difference between a custom rifle and the Sendero is the odds of getting a good shooter.

    Any custom rifle should shoot 1/2 MOA or Better. Factory rifles, even the Sendero change the odds
    for getting a good shooter to about 30 to 40 %.

    Just my opinion

    I own that rifle in 300 RUM. It shoots Barnes TSX 180g 3359fps, best group is 3/8" 3 shot. It will also shoot SMK 168g at 3499fps best group also 3/8" for 3 shot. Love that rifle ....I have killed a trophy caribou at 130yds and a Blue wolf at 60yds with it. I paid $575 for it used at my local gun store.

    I would be more inclined to buy a cheaper Rem 700 in 300 RUM and choose the stock. The Sendaro package is a bit heavy for carrying around. I know I had a 7 RUM for a while. I would also install a Wyatt's mag box.

    I did exactly that. Purchased a SPS, put HS stock on it, had 3 position safety installed, coated it diamond kote. Put Leupold QD rings, with a VXL 4.5x14. The Sendero is just a long range fun gun now.

    I have 300 rum and sent it in to have it customized. If i had it to do over again i would go with the custom in stead of the factory.
