    Have a Sako A2 in 22-250 that stuns me every-time I use it as it is so accurate: great looking rifle too.

    Is your rifle a sporter or a varmint model? What type of shooting/hunting do you have in Northern Ireland? Are Sakos common there or are you the rare exception? Welcome to our forum!!!

    Its a standard "Forrester" A2 model. I bought it on the internet from a Scottish Estate where it was used to control foxes and crows. It's an old rifle that has seen use, but I love it. Have a 3 X 9 Nikon on top and have used it in a Target mode on paper out to 600 yards with breathtaking accuracy.
    Northern Ireland is not that big so hunting here is basically deer, all game birds and rough shooting. The deer are well controlled and all on estates. I would do a lot of pistol shooting too, especially action type.
    Sako's would be quite common here and very well thought of.
    Thank you for such a swift response.
