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.

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.

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.

, Sako Roughtec A7 .300 Win


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.
