    270wsm Sako 75 Finnlight

    Hi guys, selling my Sako Finnlight 75 in 270wsm. It is in good used condition. Usual great Sako accuracy and action is smooth as butter. It comes fitted with a Contessa rail and leupold PRW2 30mm rings. Also included is a box of 145grain ELDX projectiles and 2 canisters of Reloader 17 (one full and one about a third full)there are also 56 assorted loaded rounds (eldx, ttsx, ballistic tip). Hoping to get $1900 for the lot, however if I am off on my pricing I am happy for someone to tell me so

    I have had two 270wsm's now that have both loved reloader 17. I think it was a bit hard to get for a while so I had a bit of a stockpile lol! Easily over 3400 with a 110grain barnes ttsx and a mild load of the reloader 17. That reloader 17 also goes really good in a 243 I have

    I did shoot a few with the ELDX on the range and they went well from memory. I have to be honest though I do struggle to shoot this rifle accurately with the heavier projectile weights from field positions, due to the light nature of the rifle. Hence why I was using the 110grain ttsx. They have killed very well for me and have substantially lighter recoil.
