Sako 85

Well, I broke down and sold my 6.8spc AR-15. That was one great rifle, but I got a recent high-end hunting rifle mania and I had to sell the AR in order to slake my lust. Here's the result:

That there is a Sako 85 Hunter in .300 WSM. I've yet to shoot it... hunting sight in will happen tomorrow. Sako guarantees sub-moa accuracy and I believe it. The bore is as smooth as you can imagine, the bolt like butta, the trigger breaks like glass, just look at the stock, and I topped it off with a Nikon Monarch III 3-12x42 with side focus and BDC reticle.

I'm heading off to Boomer Shoot this year and this rifle ought to do the trick. I'll be building a new AR next year by the way, and probably be buying a new lower (or three) before January 20, 2008, given the way things are going.

Hope to see you at the Boomershoot.

I'll be in Slot 1, all the way to the east.

Great! We'll have to look each other up at Boomershoot!

But with the coming Obamalypse, you might be reconsidering the sale of that 6.8SPC.

If you plan to buy the parts kits for your lowers with check or credit card, thereby leaving a paper trail, I suggest that you get them before 1/20/09 as well. Actually, the paper trail might be immaterial. Uppers and parts kits might be unavailable after 1/20/09.

Nice! I've never checked out Nikon scopes - which is surprising since they make great optics for cameras.

Good looking rifle. I'm hoping my Sako85 270wsm turns up next week.
