    Attachment 34081Hello all
    I am looking at selling my cherished Sako 85 varmint laminate stainless the rifle has fired no more than 450-500 rounds the barrel was properly broken in , the rifle is in overall A1 condition.

    The rifle is silly accurate and I have achieved sub 1"groups @ 300m with 85gr hpbt , I have load data for 100gr gamekings that shot 3/4" groups and other bullet weights. The rifle loves the 75-90gr weights the best.

    this was my do all deer, fox, rabbit, varminting and little bit of gong bashing gun.

    I have no knowledge of this particular rifle or seller but I do know that this model is the best factory rifle I have ever used.

    My last estate rifle was one of these. It fired around 3000 rnds in five years and was as accurate the day I handed it back as the day I took it out of the box. Half MOA groups all day long with factory 75grn Rem Accutips. It never let me down despite being used and abused on a daily basis.

    The laminated stock is the perfect compremise between walnut and synthetic and, if this example has it, the set trigger is lovely, you don't have to use it but it's there if you want to.

    PM replied to and Glyn thank you for the extra infomation , im sort of reticent about selling as worried about letting go such a accurate good looking rifle go that I have achieved shots I would not believe possible.

    Seen this rifle in use and can confirm how accurate the rifle is and that it is in very good condition, Griff looks after his kit. Whoever buys it won't be disappointed.
