    Congrats, the Sako 85 is a fantastic rifle. Take your time running in the barrel, do it correctly and invest in the proper cleaning tools: Quality rod, bore guide, patches, solvent and oils.

    If you run it in and clean it properly it will out shoot most stuff out of the box and you'll have a lovely rifle that will last for years.

    the advice on 'running in the barrels' is sound......its a bit of a pain but worth it.
    My sako75's just keep hitting home.
