Feeling the water for a bit of advice if you would ( oh no him again!! lol ), As some of you may know i am dipping my toes into a new unknown Rifle cal for me the :- 6.5x47 for stalking and a tad of range work, iv had some sound advise with a plethora of cals to look at with the pit falls pro's and con's and am grateful to all that added they fish to the stew.
With that said below is my Sako 85 SS in .308, its just been Cerakote'd in gun metal grey by James of Jager SA top job .
My fix is do I, (A)- re-barrel this Sako that's done way under 450 rounds to the 6.5x47 or (B)- sell it add all my funds in the pot and buy a range rifle in say 260 or 7mm or.308 for the 1200 yrds i wish to go back to again, then buy a 6.5x47 build up job and use them for just one dedicated reason .
In light of the above If i sold the Sako what price would i expect to recover from it. The rifle is around three years old new from GMK to dealer and was moth balled for two year due to my car crash injury's hence low round count. T8 MOD. 2 MAG'S its only been out since last july and has had 6 outings .so small marks on plastic stock, otherwise its top draw and shoots like a dream . i am around £1900 into the Sako so far plus glass. so would not sell it for a silly price .
thanks for the incoming help and advice.
