Forgive me if this item has been mentioned before, yet I have searched for it all over the web and this seems to be the best source of information on these rifles. I own an 85 synthetic & stainless in .270 win caliber, I suspect manufactured in 2011. Do not know how to verify this, yet date is probably within a couple of years. My concern is the fact that I have deciced to now load all of my rounds. After reading every benchrest article on how to load the best ammo for rifles, I was a bit disturbed to learn that to "kiss the lands" on my .270 meant to seat the Sierra 135 grain BTHP to the point that it was not seated to it's correct depth. I have, after some direction from this forum, learned that my rifle wishes to kiss the lands at about 3.469". The SAAMI overall cartidge length is 3.340". I have never shot this rifle anywhere except the range, and don't expect to. Yet when people at the range learn that I am shooting a Sako, they all wish to know all about it's shooting ability. I have read online that the new Sako throats have a forcing cone, which helps center the bullet before entering the lands. This is thought to be a great improvement over the past, yet I still can not believe there are not bullet seating depths which help. I appreciate each who have read this, and more who have considered it. Please help before I reload.
