    What brand/weight of ammo does sako 85's like to eat?

    I have just bought a S&S Sako 85 (not fluted barrel) in 6.5x55 and wondered if anyone had one and could let me know what brand of ammo they like?

    Weight wise it's for roe, sika, fallow and red.

    Many thanks

    It seemed to get on very well (better than my abilities at least..) with Federal Power Shok 140gn. I quite like the heavier bullet for the summer months when the cover is up. The Federal's were £27 a box so less than Norma & Sako too!
    Thanks again
