Waiting for some police-work. The rifle is about mint!
That is beautiful.
How long does it usually take to get approval to take possession of a rifle? Is the process very complicated?
By the way, in late April of 2017 I took the train from Oslo to Bergen. What a great trip and what a beautiful country! And at half price for oldsters like me the best bargain in the world.
Hi Stonecreek! If I'm unlucky it can take up to 3 months waiting for the police-work. So I gave half of the money to the seller now and rest when all the papers are ok. The seller keeps the rifle until all is ok.
Not so complicated,but I need to prove that I have the hunting-exam and have a gun-licens.
Good to hear that you enjoyed your trip to Norway! Next time you must test the browntrout-fishing in the southern mountains!
Hey, that looks like a Helle with those trout. I bought one at a fishing store in Bergen while I was there and gave it to my son.
Yes you are right! Good knives!
Congrats on a lovely Sako. Please update us on your 6 PPC S491 accuracy once you get some range time in. I have the same model in a 22 PPC, but not as good condition. I'm not getting much load work done the last while but my 22 PPC has shot in the .3's and am hoping to find a load that will do that consistently.
Your Sako in 6 mm PPC brings back memories. When Sako first began making these rifles I bought one new with 10 + boxes of Sako ammo
I found mine accurate to 200 yds +
Used it for deer (farmer friend had a permit to harvest) and I was invited to help him.
Quickly found the rifle could kill a deer when point of aim was correct. However a slight mis-judgment could easily just wound. We did not lose any deer, but I decided that a larger caliber would be better for deer.
Mine was a single shot.
Yours looks very nice
Do you remember what kind of bullet you used? Here in Norway I can use the rifle on max roedeer-size deere.
Yes they were 70 g
The Box says
6 PPC USA Finland SAKO
Hollow Point 4.5 grams
Boat Tail 70 grains
Finaly in the safe. Looking forward to test it!
Hi (hej) Norway.375
Drillingmons from Danmark.
Anything new, about your 6mm. PPC?
Not anything "seriously". I tested it one evening at my friends farm. Found it very easy to shoot. 10 mm/100 meters is no problem. And some metal-targets at 300 meters was easy (20x20 cm). Just holding a litle bit over. Best rifle I have for long-range hunting.
