Back in the 270wsm game

I have hated myself ever since i sold my m70 270wsm and I recently had a deal presented to me by a buddy that I couldnt resist. I picked it up last night and wow! Its a sako75 Finnlight (stainless fluted) I am going to put a Zeiss Rapid Z 800 on it. Probably Norma brass and not sure what bullets yet. Might play with the 140 AB again if not then good ole' Barnes. Not really an informational post but I am so excited about this new rifle I had to tell someone!

Re: Back in the 270wsm game

NICE!! I have a guy I work with that might sell the exact gun you just bought. He is getting caught up in the big caliber hype and thinks you have to shoot a .338 Lapua to kill an antelope. I hope he decides to sell because I got first dibbs!

Re: Back in the 270wsm game

apparently you arent familiar with my posts... 338 lapua is minimum for antelope! and 375 RUM is preferred! haha I suffer from the same sickness as your friend but you gotta love the small stuff too!
hope you get it i havent shot it yet but the feel of a sako is hard to beat

If you like 338's for antelope then you might try the new Berger Classic Hunter 130.

Re: Back in the 270wsm game

It would be against every thread of my being to shoot a Berger! haha thats some pretty awesome damage though.

I have to admit I do shoot bergers in my 22-250

Re: Back in the 270wsm game
