New to the Forum & wanted to show off my collection

Hi everyone, I frequent some other forums, & decided to join here. For my first post I thought I'd just post a bunch of photos of my Collection. You will quickly discover I am a Sako nut.














I hope you all enjoy.

    Very nice!
    Your stock on the Gaillard is beautiful.

    Here is what my Gaillard will shoot like.



    The top left target was some 416 Rem Mag brass I was fireforming with 225 Hornady Interlocks. 85gr IMR 7828 & CCI 250 primers. 2967 FPS (Low), 2995 FPS (High). I also notice that that target should have been rotated 90 degrees CCW as that is how it was at the range.

    The top right target was the last 3 rounds left from my 1st 338 Gaillard that I had. They were loaded with 250 Sierra HPBT, 340 Fire Formed Norma cases 89.5gr RL25 and CCI 250 primers.
    2887FPS (Low), 2959FPS (High).

    The lower left target is a 5 shot group of Barnes 225gr XXX. These were Fire Formed 8mm Rem Mag cases with 86gr IMR 7828 and CCI 250 primers. 3054 (Low), 3077 (High).

    The lower right target was an experiment. 200gr Nosler Ballistic tips with Fire Formed 8mm Rem Mag cases with 88gr RL22 and CCI 250 primers. Nosler does not make a ballistic tip in 200gr anymore, only the Accubond. I figured I'd try these before I used my Accubonds. I must say I was impressed!
    3249FPS (Low), 3271FPS (High).

    It seems to shoot everything well.

    Here is what the cartridge looks like.



    Ted Gaillard is a Saskatchewan barrel maker here in Canada. As far as I'm concerned I think his stuff is A1. They are button rifled & hand lapped not cut. The cartridge is one of his own design & seems to shoot very well. I have had nothing to complain about as of yet.

    Well I finally had some time to do some more shooting. I shot on my black drop this time. More Sako envy for your enjoyment.
