Sako Roughtec A7 .300 Win

I have always liked the Roughtec's from Sako - yes, it's not a full on 85 - but the refinements over a Tikka, yes, they are there.

Tikka T3X Light 308 – comparing factory and reloads…

The T3x Aspire - unique to Australia and New Zealand. Designed as an evolution of the well known Superlite Stainless but with a few new tricks up its sleeve. But - how does it shoot?

This .300 Win was mild to shoot with the MAE can on it. The bipod the custom had on it (short harris) was too short for fieldwork. IMHO.

This is the customers ‘slightly longer than bush-hunting’ gun. It’s off on a trip look for Sika this weekend.

Results

Left side is 3 round group, adjusted, shot 2 more.

  • Ammo: Customer Reload – 178 ELD-X
  • Velocity: 2664 fps – 22.2/58 SD/ES

What would I change?

I would put a decent bipod on it – either longer Harris or something similar – not a lightweight – this is a longer range rig.
