G'day all, I'm from Victoria and a passionate big game hunter. I also love my sakos though you probably wouldn't know looking in my safe at the moment. I had a sako 75 ss synthetic in 7mm RM and a Sako 85 Bavarian in 300WM. Both of which i sold, the bav still haunts me! I used the money to buy some leica binos and an A7 in 30-06. I will buy one more gun to fill the safe and it must be a 9.3x62 in sako. I dearly love my brothers black bear but I want another nice wooden rifle. Unfortunately i broke my phone recently so don't have many pics of my sakos or game photos with them. There's one of my brothers black bear with a fallow and one of my old bavarian with a red. I'm currently building a new rifle, i tried to get a sako but they dont make a 7x57 and i couldn't afford to pay for one then rebarrel it so im using a cz 550 as a donor rifle. My question is, I'm planning on having it as an open sights rifle and the gunsmith has got hold of open sights from a sako 85 bavarian. Wondering what people think of them for shooting game and targets to say 250m? I know the irony of asking this considering i once owned one but i only ever shot that scoped. Appreciate any experience and advice. P.s. great forum here Can't believe i hadn't heard of ut before!
