    Sako 85 Range report

    Finally got the second scope mounted on the sako. Wasnt happy with the first. Thanks to 7mmsaum who helped out with load development.

    The calibre 7mmremag. I wanted a classic looking rifle with longrange capability without looking like a long range rig.

    The scopes a 4.5 x 14 x 50 with CDS . Shooting 162 gn A maxs it went well. Got it sighted in then went back too 200 yds.First two shots were on the right. went three clicks left then 5 more shots. Im not the best shot around so happy with the result. It will only get better.

    Nice. Do you find the cheek piece is high enough with a 50 mm scope?

    Seems ok Brian. It's pretty comfortable to shoot. Compared with other rifles I've had it's quite heavy which helps

    Not sure. I'm thinking it's too sexy to cut up.
