    You say it shoots the 143 grainers pretty well, what sort of speeds are you getting with them? Are they pretty accurate? Do you have Dies available?

    That's 2 Sako 85's in 260 this week, Its tempting to sell the .284!!

    2650 over the magneto speed
    Half moa, very basic load development,
    Text a mate, measure the mag, go shoot deer.
    So more speed/accuracy easily achieved I suspect.
    No dies as I have another 260.
    Pm any serious offers
    Thanks

    I can vouch for the woodwork really being a beauty on this rifle.
    Photos just don't show off how nice it looks

    Brads, at this rate the sako boys will pay you to keep it!

    How have you found the ELD-X performance on animals?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
