• Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

Stoeger Sako Single Shot 22 PPC

Sako Collectors Club Discussion Forum

Beings you are the one with the rifle in hand, why don't you just measure it? It's so easy a caveman could do it. If you don't have a cleaning rod, jag, a cleaning patch, a pencil & a measuring tape, you could also just look up the SAAMI or CIP specifications for it. You do realize that after you know the twist, it won't change how the rifle shoots one bit.

Truer words were never spoken, Making the assumption that a certain rate of twist will be most accurate with a particular bullet is a neophyte's mistake. The only way to accuracy is to actually shoot a particular load (even then, such things as powder charge, primer, and seating depth may render a potentially accurate bullet less than satisfactory). True, a relatively conventional twist rate is unlikely to stabilize an unconventionally long bullet, but such bullets are not intended for conventional rifles.
There will be some variation in twist rates among different makes of 22 PPC rifles, but with Sako, I believe that it is 1:14. However, as stated, it is easily determined. Here's a short YouTube video that shows an easy way to do this:

I'd do it 2 or 3 times to make sure you've got it right. By the way, you've just acquired a really great rifle!
