Re: 1960\'s Sako Vixen
I don't know what the barrel quality was like, but mine shoots VERY well. It likes 20.5 grains of 4198 and any bullet between 52 and 55 grains. I keep peep sights on it for shooting rabbits, but I did put my 24x Leupold on it once and shot some <1/2" groups at 100 yards. The longest shot I ever took with it was a rockchuck (western woodchuck) at about 350 yards. He was laying down facing me and the bullet hit him in the neck and travelled through the body (didn't exit). With little wind, long shots like that were easy.
