Hello all, l hope you can help me. I lost my bolt a few weeks back out of my .243 as most of you's have prob read. I am having a nightmare trying to replace it, without the extent of sending it back to sako which is gonna be costly and time consuming- l may have no choice- however. I have found a sako 75 bolt for sale for a .308, and am wondering if it will be the same- lve been assured that the head space is the same, as is the action, l just need to wheather the locating lugs- and the sears (not sure what that is) are identical, or can be modified by a gunsmith with not too much hassle.
So can l ask if anyone has a sako 75 in both .243 and .308 if they can compare bolts- or even try them for fitting- not forgetting to take them straight out afterwards?
Mine is a 75 hunter with heavy walled barrel if that makes any difference at all.
Please let me know your findings.
