Would appreciate any coments on this model?
Having just got into stalking im now sick of humping my heavy barreled varnint rifle around with its numb wildcat mod attached, so i have decided to try and find lighter shorter better handling model.
The one i like most and handles the best for me is a wood sako 85 20" with a jet z compact moderator, although the shop owner tried his best to steer me away from it saying he didnt think it was for me as i would struggle with accuracy over 200yds with its short barrel while out foxing ? and i would struggle to get the velocity /energy to make it deer legal ?
I have given a lot of thought about changing cal and read a lot of comments on this site and others but decided to stick with the "girly" .243 that seems to get a lot of stick, the few deer i have shot have dropped dead on the spot and i have lost count of the foxes i have had with this calibre so for me it seems to be doing both jobs ok .
I would also appreciate any load info that this particular rifle likes, thanks in advance DF
