Greetings from Finland, the land of Sako and Tikka

[FONT=&amp]I got my first Sako some 20 years back. It was a P94S Finnfire 22lr. A year or so later I bought my next gun which was a Sako 75 SS 30-06. I use these for hunting but it has been few busy years so I haven't used those a lot lately.[/FONT]

[FONT=&amp]Last autumn my friend took me shooting long range with his TRG22 .308 and I was sold. I started to look a Tikka T3X Tac A1 or TRG-22 260rem but somehow I found second hand 25 shots fired Tikka T3 CTR 260rem 20" without X in absolute mint condition. I had a tight budget and I got a great deal of that Tikka, Burris fullview SFP scope (which I already traded to Falcon Optics M18+), Jaki Forest suppressor (which I traded for Jaki Super Classic), Harris like bipod, Lapua brass and some other useful items. I couldn't pass that deal and got it right away :) I also needed a reloading equipment (I haven't done that before), steel targets, gun cabinet, cleaning equipments and so on so every cent counts. I have everything in excel and I really have made a best of my budget! I would prefer longer barrel, two stage trigger and pistol grip but you cannot have all every time. Somehow I like the smaller ejector port in T3 and replaced bolt shroud already with Tikka factory metal shroud. I'm really loving my Tikka but someday I need to upgrade the scope and stock. I don't know the order yet.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]I'm here for looking some items that are hard to find from Finland like Sinclair consentricity gauge and L.E. Wilson trimmer and dies and arbor press. And of course I want to learn about long range shooting and reloading and I'm hoping to share back someday!

[FONT=&amp]I'm not native English speaker so I'm sorry about my bad English. I hope that we can communicate anyway :)[/FONT]
 
Hello mate,
If you ever want to visit south Sweden and hunt some wild hogs let me know.
I’m going to get into long distance shooting next.

I will!

I'm actually from quite far away from south Sweden. I'm living near border between our countries. Actually I buy Finnish powder from Sweden (RM jakt i Övertorneå) because it's cheaper and easier than from Finland :D

Thanks all :)

North of Oulu is almost here I guess. I'm from Rovaniemi which is a bit over 200km north from Oulu.
