I would appreciate members opinions on the Sako A7 in .243 as a stalking / target rifle and any advice on reloads for 100grn .243 .

Thank you both for your replies. I guess it's attention to detail ( rifling, crown, bedding, etc ) that gives Sako their reputation for accuracy, Many thanks

Pleasure Gary. With 18-months use under the belt, the one thing that annoys me is the 3-round magazine capacity. This is fine for stalking, but a few more would be nice for night time foxing. I still plan to add a .308 in due course and am harking after the new Sako 85 Synthetic Black. Compared to the 85, the A7 feels slimmer in the hands. Perhaps it would be worth a visit to a gun shop to try one in the hands to see how it fits? Indeed, doing that was what brought me to choose the A7 over the Tikka T3.

I luv my A7 but alas it's that silly 7mm08 calibre not. 243 . I previously owned other Sakos and really rate the A7 rifle

Hi Matt, happy new year, Since I got the Sako 591 .308 I appear to have caught the Sako bug. I would really like to put in for a 6.5x55 but I am not sure what the firearms officer would say as I already have a .308. So just trying to find out people's thoughts about the A7 in .243. Cheers, Gary

Gary,

I know what you mean since getting a .243 sako 75 im looking for another sako 75 in .308 for stalking to replace my 7mm08. Have you been to a gun shop and handled a few rifles, the shooting shows coming up, good opportunity to handled a few rifles and see what suits you best.

I bought my A7 s/s in .270 a few months ago and love it. Was choosing between it a T3 or an 85. The A7 just felt much nicer than the T3 and I didn't feel the need to spend the extra money to go up to the 85. Its not fussy with ammunition either.

Cheers,
Dave
