    photos are of a sako draw set in 308 W. it shows the many stages of case & projectile manufacture,shown are a fmj & a soft pt. this set would probably never have been set up on a board this way.
    have owned it for quite a few years now, have always been curious of what maybe under the blue felt.
    after a few beers this week it got the better of me.
    started from the back, peeled the edges of the felt back a little at a time till i could see some of the front, surprised is not the word.
    under is whats left of a sako bullet board.
    all the pieces of the draw set are screwed on from the back. as would have been the original projectiles on this display.
    a good mate has a bigger sako bullet board from about the same time, its complete. will put a photo of it up later.

    Unbelievable! Same goes for the bullet board photo. I'm just staggered at the odd curiosities that SAKO made.
    Many thanks for posting Susanna, very interesting.

    Cheers

    This is a great board,
    I wonder if it was ever distributed, or if the items were picked up on a factory visit.
    Back in the day, Visiting the factory was highly talked about, by many Aussies.
    Either way it is a very nice item,
    Thanks for sharing!
