    Now I'm confused, Internet searches say Sako Action I .223's are 1 in 8:

    I just measured this one and it's about 1 in 12.

    It depends on the year. Tikka rifles are fitted with the same barrel, and T3 customers could choose either 1:8" or 1:12".

    I've seen two 1:8" T3's stamped as such. Can't remember exactly when, but it coincided with the introduction of 69gr-80gr match bullets from Sierra. That was when people started fretting about twist-rates in .223.

    I've got the Sako 75 catalogues for 2003 & 2005, plus the Sako 85 catalogues for 2008 & 2010 which say .....

    All 75 models & actions in 2003 were 1:12" only.

    All 75 models & actions in 2005 were 1:8" only.

    All 85 models & actions in 2008 & 2010 were available as standard in 1:8 or 1:12".
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
