Sako 85 info please


Recommended Posts

Hi all 

Anyone got a .223 sako 85 varmint laminate stainless with 20” barrel . I’m wanting to know the length of barrel in front of the stock regarding how big a wildcat moderator can be fitted . Otherwise it’s go for a 24” barrelled tikka tac or super varmint with KRG or MDT chassis ?? . Thanks in advance .

Thanks very much for the load info  . Got some N135 so was going to try that once I’ve got some loading gear . Full length resize or neck only ????. With 308 I’m only doing bushing bump and neck with forster dies . 
cheers
