    Sako A7 7mm Rem mag + vortex

    Right, I need to sell another rifle to go into the new jet boat fund, so unfortunately selling this one, bloody nice setup but something has to go

    Sako A7 7mm Rem mag
    DPT suppressor
    Muzzle brake
    Talley rings
    Vortex Viper PST 6-24 x 50, mil/mil, FFP, zerostop
    Lee dies

    Rifle has been used for hunting before me so a few marks. I've mainly used as a gong gun and had scope since new and it might have been hunting twice so in great condition.

    Like most Sakos shoot great, shot gongs out to 1000 easily and a rock at 1200m is furthest hit

    Bolt has some marks from faulty primers, and carbon fiber reinforcement on the front sling swivel due, which looks stronger than new pretty much

    After $2600

    That bolt face has seen some action! How hot are you running those loads?

    I laugh a the lor and pride of man, at the sophist schools and learned clan. For what are they all in high conceit, when man in the bush with god may meet?

    That was before I had it so wasn't me. It was caused by faulty primers apparently as opposed to hot loads, I think that bad batch of Winchester that were around a few years ago.

    Sounds like those Winchester primers went bad on a few people

    I'd be happy to split the scope and rifle as well if that was of interest to anyone to buy
