Thread: Sako Deluxe models fact or fiction?

    Sako Deluxe models fact or fiction?

    I had heard a tale that Sako selected the best barrels for their "Deluxe" models. The suggestion being these were the first couple of barrels of the production run when a new mandrel was used.
    Is this just a tale or does anyone know if there is any truth behind it?

    disagree with SISI on this one. I believe that to be quite accurate, also happens within bullet production at berger for example, that's how they separate their target ammo from their hunting ammo. as the day goes on and the tolerances open up, the concentricity uniformity opens up a wee bit and the jacket thickness thins out a thousanth of a milimetre, which is what makes the hunting ammo different to the target ammo.

    more counter talk LOL

    We only make match grade rifle bullets for Varmint, Target and Hunting. When we say “Match Grade” we mean that the highest quality copper and lead available is used in a process focused entirely on consistency rather than speed. The copper is made into the J4 Precision Jacket, which is recognized around the world as having the best concentricity available. We don’t just claim to make jackets that measure .0003 or less variation in wall thickness, we actually do it with every lot. More often you will find that J4 Precision Jackets measure .0002 or less. This can easily be verified and is the reason why handmade custom bullet producers use J4 Precision Jackets exclusively. We make all of our J4 Precision Jackets and bullets on one set of dies to insure that all of the bullets in each box are as consistent as possible. Consistency is the key to precision and accuracy and no one makes bullets as consistent from lot to lot and within a given lot as Berger Bullets.
