    Sako 85 7-300 Wsm

    I got this going in the weekend



    It was a 7mm RM



    We replaced the factory barrel with a 24" Proof Carbon 1-8.24 one



    Shoots pretty well even with the extremely flexible stock



    20 rounds fired with two different projectiles its off to its owner

    The 7-300 is a little shorter & there is plenty of brass available, unlike the 7 Wsm
