    About 25 years ago at a Houston gun show. It wasn't very sought after then.

    The ancient Sako .25-35 Winchesters, designated on the flip side as 6.3x52R, are loaded with 90 grain bullets (very unusual for the .25-35). The .222 Magnums in the green and white box were an exceedingly generous gift from a member of the SCC forums. Unlike American .222 Magnum ammunition which was always loaded with a 55 grain bullet, the Sako is loaded with 50-grainers.

    Stonecreek, I have Sako 222 Rem. that's loaded with 50 grain. Was it loaded in anything other than 50 gr.
