Never heard of a Sendero, have to look it up. I have my own back porch range, built a heavy duty T bench with 2X10's and shoot off one of those green X style tack driver bags; like it better than a vise type setup. Had a Hyskore and didn't work for me. My 30-378 holds a 2.5 inch pattern at 300 yards which is OK but I guess I expected better after comparing it to that old beat up Savage 270 which is scary close.

My 30-378 has a brake and feels like a 243 to me; though quite loud. Me thinks the 30-378 reaches out more than my 7 mag.

We live along the Yukon at near border with Canada (Yukon Charlie) have too many bear and I usually carry a 338 BAR when up on summit. Have a S&W 460, 5 inch and with 395 corbons, it rips my arm off; almost get flash burns; but it will put quarter size holes through 3/8 plate; a 44 won't even scratch the steel.

I love the Yukon!

I lived in Alaska for a few years: Seward, Moose Pass and Anchorage.

I worked for the Forest Service in Moose Pass, I was stationed out of the Kenai Lake Work Center. The first year I built trails, then in following years I maintained the trails then fought fires.

It was great...that was where we carried .375 H&H’s against Brownies.

What a joy it must be to live in the bush by the Yukon.

Wait...I just re-read what you wrote, You’ve shot a 5” 460?! Wow! I find Ruger Redhawks in 44 magnum to be too stiff!

Are you a Native? I worked with a lot of Tlingits, Yupiks and Eskimos in Seward and Moose Pass, and a few in Anchorage.

See ya’,
