Re: Accuracy of the Sauer 202? Call in all avid Sauer 202 users PLEASE?????
I haven't used the 202 in 300 Win Mag, but have used several of them quite extensively in 6.5x55. All tolled, I've gone through at least two dozen barrels in this caliber in the 202s over the years in routine accuracy testing for a number of Match bullets. The caliber, action type, barrel and even load was specified by one of our customers, and I have to admit I was a bit dubious when I first started using these. However, I habve to say I was tremendously impressed in very short order. All of those barrels shot extrordinarily well, producing 1/4 MOA groups routinely. These were the straight, factory, hammer forged Match barrels from Sauer, not an aftermarket custom maker. Never had one that didn't shoot, the longevity of them was quite acceptable and I wouldn't hesitate to own one myself. It's a good (if somewhat "different") action, the barrels are excellent and they incorprate a pretty decent trigger.
I don't think you need to worry too much here.
