Thread: How many Sako 75 Stainless actions is too many...

  1. #1

    How many Sako 75 Stainless actions is too many...

    Some swear by Remington, some by Blaser, some by Tikka etc... Some swear by .243, some by .270, some by .308 etc... Just thought I'd share what my centrefire cabinet looks like. I appreciate that it won't be to everyone's taste, but that's the joy of a democratic(ish) society

    Top to bottom:
    6.5x55mm Synthetic Stainless - stalking rig with Z6i 3-18x50 BR-I & Hardy Gen IV
    I love this rifle! There are many rifles, in many calibres, but this is mine...

    6.5x47mm Varmint Laminated - "in progress" range rifle which will use the Sightron SIII SS 8-32x56 LRMOA just bought on here (the 6-24x50 LRIRMOA will now go on the bottom one or get sold)
    This was a .22-250 Synthetic Stainless bought from EyeFor, but barrel, mod and stock sold, and ready to be built into a 6.5x47mm range rifle with 1 in 8 twist, heavy 28" Lothar Walthar barrel. It will look like the bottom one, but with an extra 4" on the barrel.

    .22-250 Varmint Laminated - TBD
    Huge thanks to Ziggy for the heads-up on this. It was the action that I was after, and they are like rocking horse p**, so it will be cabinet fodder until I can afford/decide what to do with it... Probably going to rebarrel in .308 with a lightweight stock and hunter profile 21" barrel for a trip to the Highlands this year, and hopefully boar for my 50th next year.

    So, that's my now complete toy box that I'm very happy with. Some work still to be done, and saving hard, but pretty much done. Next I need to think about a scope for the bottom one, but plenty of time to worry about that!!

    Over to you for some pics - Muir, I suspect you'll need a dozen photos just of the cabinets, let alone the contents!!!

    Looks like a well-thought out little collection. You know what you like, what works for you, what you trust and believe in, and you stick to that. It must give you a lot of pleasure to look upon your work and see that it is good...

    I've only got one Sako 75 stainless but it has become a firm favorite in the short time I've had it. If I ever manage to shoot out or ruin my Tikka 243 then I will definitely look to get a 75 in 243.

    Two of them, one action I in .223, one action III, currently on it's way back from a well known rifle smith having been re-barreled from .243 to .308. I'm wondering if it is considered a crime to have had it cerakoted black...

    A well-thought out little collection, all you need is another Sako in 9.3x62 for the big stuff .
    I have three Sako and my favorite is Sako 85 Varmint lam. in 260rem.

    yes, come on Iain, you know you NEED that 9.3x62. I'll keep an eye out for you

    They say about bikes that the ideal number is D-1, D being the number that results in divorce. Same thing probably applies to rifles.
    So much to learn and so little time left
