Remington Sendero?

Postby DeerTracker » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:35 pm

Who hunts with one? Ive always wanted one but my only problem is I get tired of carrying a heavy rifle really quick. If you have one, what caliber is it and what does it weigh with scope sling, etc.? I would probably be looking at one in either a 264 Win mag or 300 Ultra. What load/ bullet combo are you using?

I have two senderos now. My first is in a 25-06 and my newest one is in a 7MM Ultra Mag. that I just used on my hunt this year.

Yes they are heavy guns to pack around but both of the guns that i have shoot very well. Sometimes you have to choose if the extra weight is worth it or not.

I just went and weighed my 7MM and it came in at 10.6 pounds. (???)

It's no wonder my shoulder was getting tired. lol

10.6 is less than I was thinking they would be. Heck, my Ruger hawkeye 270 weighs over 11lbs with the scope, bipod, and sling. But it came from the factory with the OD green Hogue stock. Maybe ill save up some more money and have a really accurate lightweight built

My custom M70 with sling and bipod weighs 6.2 lbs. Which is why with the .338 RCM it kicks like a mule.

I hunt with one chambered in 264. I love the h@ll out of it. I shoot 120 TSX. I have yet to kill an elk with it, hopefully next year. I have not weighed it. I am guessing over 8 pds with scope and bipod. I had Wasatch Precision recrown and bed the action before too much load development. I would recomend the same if you by a new one, cheap insurance.

I have a Sendero in 7mmSTW and a Hart barrel with a Leupy 8.5-25x. It weighs in at 12.5 pounds without any rounds in it, sling, etc. Very accurate rifles for sure, but not one you want to be packing on high country hunts. I will carry it on a day hunt where I will hike to a point and set up to glass. For longer hunts, I opt for a lighter rifle.

I've got em........they are premium. Best factory rifle in their price range PERIOD. Other manufacturers have tried to duplicate this rifle and none have come close in my opinion. I have had several and currently have two. MOA at 1000yds out of the box speaks for itself. I like the 300 RUM and I love the 338 RUM in this rifle. The 25-06 is fun to, but not quite as functional. Here's mine in 338 RUM. The shot was not close and the placement was not accidental. These rifles are very accurate.---------SS

It is by far the best out of the box rifle one could buy. I have one in a .300 win mag. I am shooting 168 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips and get 1/2 MOA out to 300 yards. And 1 MOA from 400-600 yards.
my scope is a Nightforce 3.5x15 plus my harris bipod it weights about 12 pounds.
BTW, i use this rifle for all my hunting be coyote to elk. I pack it in the extream backcountry and the weight is NOT an issue. Im not a big person.. 5'7 and 160 lbs and love the reliability of the rifle. Get it zeroed in and it will do its job!
i would rather carry this rifle in the Frank Church hiking than take a less proven lighter rifle and pull n pray.
I blasted a coyote at 515 yards three weeks ago, one shot kill. Not an easy task. My friends couldn't believe it when they saw the yote drop in his tracks.
i also shot a muley buck at 505 yards two years ago and dropped him immediately!
its worth the price tag.. but i will say this. Don't sell the rifle short by putting a cheap scope on it. Do it and yourself the respect and get a good scope, sight it in, and enjoy!

I think the Accumark Weatherbys are better rifle out of the box compared to the Senderos. Don't get me wrong, I love my Senderos, but I feel my Accumark is better for all around hunting whether it be packing in the high country or sitting on a point and still hunting
