    These two HB Sakos were about as accurate as accurate could get a few decades ago, and still can pretty well hold their own against today's best. The Forester is a .243 topped with a 20X Redfield 3200 scope, the Vixen is a .222 with a 12X Leupold. DSC_0154.JPG DSC_0152.JPG

    I like the older stuff, especially with the double border and gripcap...

    2 questions Lite Trigger 1 - Are those" high " Sako Vintage mounts & rings on the Vixen? And what size objective lens does the Leopold scope have?

    Hi, sorry for delayed reply, have been away at Benchrest tournament. Yes, the Sako rings are the high configuration. The objective bell of the Leupold scope measures 1.985" at largest point, which leaves about 3/16" clearance between scope and barrel.
