brand new sako 85 204 ruger problems

I am helping a mate with getting a load to go in the above. We have tried alot of combos but basically average groups then with a flyer when shooting 4 shot groups.
We were expecting at least 1/2 moa or better but more consistently 1 1/4 or bigger.
On trying to seat out to the lands we then found the 40g blitz kings would fall out of the case before touching the lands and worked out that with a magazine fit they would be 7mm of the lands.
Any body got one the same to compare info.
berretta NZ have now got it to see what the story with the long throat and see if they can shed some light

Cheers in advance Andy

I've got an M85 Finnlight in 300 WSM that shoots worse. It might be the barrel, who knows? They have a pathetic recoil lug system, I do know that.
