    Sako 85/75 .270 swap for same in .25-06

    I'm looking for above rifle in said calibre, I have just bought a Sako 85 Stainless synthetic in .25-06 from Straightbetweentheeyes on this forum and it really is a lovely rifle, fired approx. 200 rounds, PES T12 black powder coated mod, but I'm struggling to find factory ammo local to me (don't want to reload) and I can get loads of .270, so I'm looking for a swap for a similar rifle in .270 or will sell the .25-06 and moderator for 1000.
    Cheers Jase.

    surely your local rfd can order you some in if you say buy 50 to a 100 at a time

    Ey up Jay,
    swillington have a good choice, only 22miles from you. Also Paul Lane Rifle club at Mirfield stocks are good too, they are only 18miles from you.
    Cheers Rich.

    They seem very reluctant when I asked them Jay, and then it still leaves you with only the one brand and then because it's a limited order it's top whack price, where I can walk into most gun shops around me and they all seem to stock .270, I might have to reluctantly go down the reloading route.

    Hey up Rich, I've already tried Swillington (twice) and nothing despite saying the first time "we should be getting some soon" and Paul Lane only had the Privi 100grn (which I already have).

    Now sorted, rang Mirfield rifle range up and they've now got Sako, Federal Premium, Federal Classic and Privi so no longer looking for a .270 at the minute.
