    Film 16: Sako 85 Finnlight

    Fully agree on the weight. Most rifles are far to heavy. 4kg ready to go is about the maximum accepatable.

    Nice video

    I don't really notice the weight really , but a slightly heavier rifle does feel more steady

    BUT

    if the objective is to save weight overall then the finnlight is a step in the right direction but by putting a nearly 1kg PM2 on it kind of wastes all the effort ( it will be a bit lighter tho )


    now a Finnlight with a Z6I 2-12x50 ( over half the weight of a PM2 ) now that's a sweet lightweight hill rifle

    The goal was to save weight and keep the same capability in the setup, 4kg I can carry all day, 5kg with the Blaser I could carry all day too but this is much nicer. I can't go backwards from the PMII, and *anything* else feels like going backwards!


    e: I'd change from the PMII if I felt that there was something lighter of the same quality with the same capability + features, but I don't think there is.

    Indeed your choice of scope is strange. Purely out of weight department. There are very good hunting scopes around from about 0.5 to 0.6 kg. Schmidt & Bender was never popular here. Strange we are only 2 hours away from the UK. I have never seen a S&B scope in the field. Shooting men spending money buy Swarovski ( the majority) or Zeiss . Others buy cheap optics.

    PMII only weighs 830ish grams and is totally dependable, I will be using the rifle not purely as a hunting rifle - also long range & competitions. None of the lighter "hunting" scopes, while quality, have the features I prefer for such

    Nice clips. Over the last years I watched your clips on regular basis. Bloody nice country for an outdoorsman. Very nice clips on rifles and hunting. Thanks. You seem to have recovered your red rear bag.
