i think he got it for 1099. lot of gun for the money. did you get a 6.5 prc?I haven’t tried one, I’ve wanted to but bought a Tikka Super Varmint instead, then Europtic put the Sako on sale. I’d still like to try the Sako someday though.
I can’t answer the freebore for the S20 Sakos. I know that many of the older Sakos had a lot of freebore, I think that’s changed though. I just bought a Tikka super varmint in 6.5 PRC and when I seat a 143ELDX to touch the lands the bullet has about an 1/8th of inch left in the magazine. Tikka and Sako are owned by the same company so I would hope they are chambering Sakos much the same, I certainly don’t know that but I would assume that’s the case.Vince - I could check with my brother. he purchased one. there is a lot of room in the clips/ magazine to seat out. . also purchased 100 rounds of lapua brass and several boxes of factory ammo including norma 143 grain. his expectations were met and then some. preliminary is the norma 143 gold, hornady 147 and one other factory load all shot .4 or less for 5 shots. the two handloads with 140 berger and lapua brass and n-565 he said was about the same or a little less. he said "this gun is going to be a challenge to beat the factroy ammo". he said the trigger was good but he did not adjust right at 3#. he put a 45X weaver on temporarily.
