    I ran across this brief 2016 article from Guns & Ammo about Sako ammunition on another forum and thought the Sako crowd would be interested.

    I have several boxes of the Sako .270 Win. 156-grain Hammerhead ammunition, but haven't shot any of it yet.

    I just don't see any Sako ammo on the shelves anywhere I go. Does Beretta import any or just to certain areas?

    Interesting article, thanks for posting. Wish they would have shown a head stamp. It would be neat to have cartridges head stamped Sako for a Sako rifle.

    I'd have to assume that it would be available in the US. The Canadian distributor is Stoeger Canada, and it's generally available here in many gun shops in a wide variety of chamberings. It runs about $34 USD a box of 20.

    As with any statement by Beretta USA, I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe.

    It is noted that Beretta has been anything but helpful when Sako is associated with it.

    I just talked to a former Beretta salesman. His take on this is that Beretta is going to expand its ammo offerings to more dealers at the present time. Not more caliber offerings at the present. Wayne
