    Only thing I'm thinking of doing is adding a stug stock to the tikka

    They look good.

    @Smiddy what are the maniatis suppressors like? Why did you go for them? Would you recommended? I'm thinking about a non carbon one for my 223. They are only 3" forward and 280 gems.

    Also, I tried R17 and 168 grn Noslers in my 20" 300saum today - went straight to 3100 fps and.75 moa. Pleased.

    Yep they are good, quieter on the wsm than the hushpower one was I had, holding up well in the wsm, yep id recommend - well am happy with mine. I've know Greg since I've started hunting, he does my fluteing etc- told me he had these new model out so I bought a couple off him.

    That's good velocity, I'm using 2209, I think would go faster with n550 and rl17 but 2209 easy to get and its accurate

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Tell him he needs to work on his bedside manner. I called him once to ask about a build and it was like talking to a rock

    Yea he doesn't do rifle builds, that might be why, but that's your job to tell him that not mine

    The BLR trigger? Its "ok" havnt shot it yet. But seems same as other BLRs ive shot.... heavier than a bolt action for sure, but ok for inside 100m.

    So, after eight and half months I have now had my Sako fetish fix for 2017.

    2017 seemed like a good year to get a rifle in this calibre for some reason? Undecided on optics at the moment.
    In 7x64?

    Yeah, he was pretty dry with me but brightened up when I told him I new Smiddy. I didn't tell him Smiddy was just an internet pen-pal though.

    I got a BLR trigger worked ( factory trigger was difficult to use accurately ) by a well known gunsmith a number of years ago.
    It was considerably worse when I got it back and cost a bit.
    He didn't want to know about it even though the hammer would drop when the action was worked fast.

    Took it to Robbie at Gunworks ( not the gunsmith who did the trigger job ) and he put all new factory parts back into it and I sold it knowing that it was at least safe to use again.

    So be careful what you do to improve the factory trigger.

    I guess if I worked the action and pulled the trigger a few thousand times it might smooth up a bit.

    Sounds like that first gun smith got the cogs all wrong on the reassembly.
    Easy to do. I've had the trigger reworked on mine. The Gunmaker did his time four years at Purdys
    So knows what he's doing. Not like some of the butchers I've seen in nz that call them selves smith
    If you want to know the age of your BLR look at the serial number. See where the letter is mine is K73 so made in 1973
    There will be some numbers before that.
    Goggle BLR and shooting with Hobie he has an article on how to age them.
