Model 700 Sendero SF II

The Remington Model 700 Sendero SF II is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .264 Win., 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., 7mm Rem. Ultra Mag., and .300 Rem. Ultra Mag. The Model 700 was introduced by Remington in 1962 and has since been expanded to include more than 30 sub-models. What makes the Sendero SF II unique to the Model 700 family is that it features a composite stock with a beavertail fore-end. It’s finished in black with grey webbing and reinforced with
aramid fibers, a heat-resistant synthetic fiber. The stock also
features ambidextrous finger grooves, an ergonomic palm swell, and dual swivel studs for attaching a bipod. And the Sendero has a stainless steel fluted barrel.

Remington says the Model 700’s action forms “three rings of steel,” meaning it uses a push-feed action where the bolt pushes the round towards the chamber and the extractor does not grab the rim of the cartridge until the bolt is completely forward and locked. It doesn’t affect the smoothness of the action, but does cater to one’s preference. Some prefer the push-feed action over a control-round feed action (which does the opposite). Also, according to Remington, the Model 700’s receiver was milled from a single piece of steel, so it’ll be more resistant to wear overtime than those not milled from a single piece of steel. A durable receiver is necessary especially when absorbing the force of the initial explosion that sets off heavier loads.

Remington recommends the Sendero SF II for long-range varmint hunting.
