    Sako 85 hunter 223 twist rate

    Been looking for a new bit of kit in 223 finally decided on a Sako 85 Hunter looking to shoot factory between 50-70 grain, mainly for paper punching but may get use for the occasional woodland roe outing in Scotland or foxing locally.
    qestion is 1 in 9 twist or 1in 12 ??? Believe you can order in both rates ?

    I think most will be 1-12 but if you want 1-9 you would probably have to order it

    GMK tend to order 1 in 12 for the UK market. Sako do make them in a 1 in 8, but they are always special order unless a gun shop has decided to stock one. I would say that is unlikely in anything other than the varmint format. Orders tend to take a nominal 6 months.

    Great choice in rifle by the way!
