Thread: 6.5x55 Sako Semi Custom

  1. #1

    6.5x55 Sako Semi Custom

    It is a RH Sako L61R in 6.5 x 55 including Border Archer sporter weight barrel beadblasted, also synthetic McMillan stock bead blasted and re-painted in satin black and bedded. The barrel is 24” long. It is a drop plate magazine system. I cannot remember the thread size ( perhaps 1/2 unf) of the barrel thread, but I have a wildcat fitted to it at the mo. I can find out the thread size if required. The rifle is cleaned after every other outing and is wiped down if it gets wet with a oily rag. The black metallic parts need looking after as it is an old sako, just lightly oil frequently. The mod is removed after every outing to prevent corrosion in the barrel. I have produced less than .25” groups with this at 100 yards and have won small comps at 200yards with 1.25” groups. I will also throw in what lapua brass I have, redding dies and a RCBS die.

    SOLD

    What you up to you bugger? I don't know what you are getting now, but when you get it I think WE should try it out on a Sika or two

    Jingzy, Is it possible that due to all the discussion on this site that you've been converted to the .270? atb Bob

    Bob,

    I'm trying to eat my dinner, I nearly spat it out. I already have a 7-08 that will knock the pants off a 270.

    No, there is another plan looming.

    PS. PM replied to.

    I'm pretty new to the forum and I was just admiring your 6.5 John. However correct me if I'm wrong; isn't that a younger Sako 691 action you have there and not a L61R?

    Sorry James,

    It is a L61R, from the more sought after era of actions
