Sako 85 Laminate .270

Dejavu, but not really. A suppressor makes a world of difference on the .270!

A constant learner with an inquisitive mind, Kerry created The Bloke as a way to share what he was learning from the community of experts he found himself surrounded by. Precision Shooter and GunSafe soon followed. Somewhere along the line, he picked up one or two things himself. But don't call him an expert.

Had another Sako 85 in .270 out to set up – this one had the laminate stock and was wearing a Leupold Vx5 on top.

It also had a Hardie suppressor on the end. Made the gun a lot more comfortable to shot, and, interestly (for those wondering) compared to last week’s one – only shot 5 fps slower – which, in the bigger picture is possibly also the result of a temperature difference, or just a statistical error. In other worlds – no – your suppressor potentially won’t change the speed of your gun.

I can only say it again – the Sakos are so smoooooth! This guns action, trigger, everything just comes together so nicely.
