Sako 85 Finnlight 300WSM
« on: May 14, 2011, 07:18:11 PM »
Well I did it dropped a few bills and picked up a Finnlight 300WSM topped it off with a Zeiss 3.5-10x44 and switched out the hockey puck for a limbsaver.

I know the scope adds weight but with the rifle coming in under 6 1/2lbs I figure I should be able to pack it just about anywhere. Now have to see if it's going to bite on the back end as bad as the front end  :o

Anyone shooting one of these? Which bullets do they seem to like? I picked up some Trophy Bonded 180grns going against every thing telling me to go with the 165's

I shoot the same with a McMillan.



And it seems to enjoy Berger VLD 168 grainers.

Joe, when reloading the 300 WSM or WM, I don't think you can ever go wrong with 180 grain bullets. I shoot the WM and 180's are all I shoot. My favorite powder is IMR-4350, but there are a lot of good offerings; range time will guide you.
