    Recently aguired a sako 85 in 300 win mag. Does anyone have experience with one of these ? Are they a good long range gun? New to 300 but familiar with long range shooting. Any help appreciated thanks in advance

    I have a couple Sako 85's (finnlite, varmint, hunter, and classic) and all have been extremely good shooters. I have rechambered all but the varmint and am really impressed with the factory barrels for accuracy even though they generally are on the short side and some calibers are a little slow with their twist.
