Re: Sako 75 270 WSM problems

Sell it at a gun show and build a good one. That is what I did many years ago and have never thought twice about it plus it is fun to have a "project" in the works.

Just find the best Smith you can afford and you will never regret it.

I believe this was a problem with the fluted barrels only. Has anyone had the same problem with a standard stainless barrel with synthetic stock?

Beretta wanted to charge me $75.00 to just look at the gun, I told them to send it back, I am having a kevlar stock installed, Accuflite in Pennsylvania is doing it, they have done quite a few like that.

Will post how it shoots when I get it back

No, I haven't seen or heard of any problems with the standard stainless barrels- all problems have been with the fluted barrels.

Re: Sako 75 270 WSM problems

I have a Sako 85 finnlite (25/06) that had similar issues with factory ammo.....1.5-2 inches......got one of those hornady tools to work out OAL and found that the rifle liked .10 off the lands yet factory stuff was running .40 off. Groups tightened to 1/4 inch at 100m. Another mate who has the finnlite in 270 runs his .15 off the lands...perhaps your factory stuff isn't close enough to the lands for the sakos liking????

Re: Sako 75 270 WSM problems

Boss Hoss, instead of selling why not just get another barrel for it. The reason I am asking is because I just experienced the barrel on my 75 finnlight loss. I had been having flyers, etc. The gun is only 5 years old, and maybe 100 rounds thru it. I can send it back and get it reseated, however I think I am going to by a custome barrel for it, and maybe get a McMillan stock. Any suggestion?
