In a previous post, I related the saga of a Sako L461 Mannlicher-style carbine in .222 Magnum that was stolen from my transfer FFL's shop before I could pick it up, then found and returned by BATF. Well, today I took it to the county range for a 100-yard workout and it is a winner! Tried it first with some ancient 55 grain Remington soft points I had picked up at a gun show. First three-shot group measured 7/8". Then I switched to Nosler 50 grain Ballistic Tips. Three of those went into 3/4". I'd say this one is a keeper. If you want to read the original "Crime Story," here's the link. https://sakocollectors.com/forum/threads/crime-story.16538/ I also brought along my L469 carbine in .222 Magnum. I hadn't fired it in about 20 years. First group with the 55-grain Remingtons was half an inch! Succeeding groups weren't as good; maybe something shifted or maybe I was just getting tired. Anyway it showed that the old carbine hadn't lost anything in 20 years in the gun safe. The target from the L461: Here are pics of the newly-acquired L461, with its 3-9x Leupold Compact. And the L469, with a Leupold 4-12x AO. I wonder how many of these Sako made. It's pretty rare - this is the only one I've ever seen; I believe another forum member also has one.
