Once upon a time I bought a Sako 75 stainless in .270 WSM. I have wanted a .30 cal for a while and decided to have it done on the short magnum.
Here is the finished rifle back from Neil Mckillop;
Attachment 12523 Attachment 12524 Attachment 12525 Attachment 12526 Attachment 12527 Attachment 12528 Attachment 12529
The rifle is a .300wsm, sako 75 stainless action, Pacnor heavy sporter fluted barrel 24" 1-10 twist, Mcmillan Sako stock Devcon and pillar bedded.
I'm really pleased with how it came out. Neil made the bolt knob after I sent him some images of some Surgeon ones I liked and he jewelled the bolt whichI think finishes it off nicely. One thing I am still waiting for is a replacement bolt shroud without the keylock, Had to order one through a mate in Sweden as GMK were not very helpful.
I have to say thank you to Neil for his patience and the quality of his work, the target speaks for itself. The last picture is the load I settled on, Next to the 5p piece is a 3 shot group shot at 120yds with 165grain Accubonds and 55grains of Varget. As it's a dedicated hunting rifle I think I'll stick with that for the time being and see how I go.
I would also like to mention a very kind hearted chap in Norfolk who knows what it is to have a new toy and be dying to get out with it. Thanks to him I was able to get a bunch of loads together and get to try them out on his range so, David I owe you one mate; Thank you.
I hope to be able to go hunting with it this weekend, fingers crossed!
All the best
