So Im a life long Sako owner , owned a gun shop mounted many scopes never had a problem. So it starts here... The Grey Wolf 300 wsm purchased 4 months ago NIB was purchased to use instead of any of my AV deluxe's . I have sitting on a 300wm deluxe a VX3 Leopold 50mm objective (never used) . The thought was mount that on the Gray Wolf. After the fact I find out...the rear mount dove tail receiver is just a hair too large to be able to tighten properly. The shots will wonder around 5 " in all directions. during this time I am racking my brain thinking, "break in" this barrel ? can't be...Scope feels tight, does it not like the ammo? will my reloads be better? So I start search for answers and find out the dovetail issue with the 85. WHY would they make that dovetail thinner? Optilocks would still work but DON'T reduce the size of the dovetail. I am not interested in placing a metal block then mounting the rings to that..why add the extra weight? Also another location for something to loosen. Two thoughts they did this for: money and money. They don't want you using Leopold mounts and they want you to purchase optilock mounts from Beretta. Bottom line,Their are many good guns out there and this is my last Sako.
