I've been eyeballing a Sako 85 Brown Bear in 450 Rigby myself. They run $2500 new, so I doubt I can think of a good enough reason as to why I NEED it. But, I sure do like the looks of it! And since I sold my 470 Merkel, and several other 458 Win Mags over the years, I've kind of missed having a 45 plus caliber rifle. Nothing but puny 416 and 375 rifles in my safe now!
yes just bought it in late november... did not shoot it yetYes! Is that yours?
Nice! Was hoping you could report on how it shoots. Get out there and blast away and let me know how it goes!yes just bought it in late november... did not shoot it yet
waiting for spring....
will be shooting cast bullet in it
I hunt moose before I had many 458 winchester and with a 545 gr. cast with 64 gr of imr 3031 got 2015 fps
moose drop on the spot
the scope is interesting.... its a Swarovski Z6 1x6 EE
EE stand for extended eye relief 6 inches no longer made
love it its illuminated and has a dot with circle around it
It's funny how another 100 or 200 fps seems to bring an exponential level of recoil pain, even though the math doesn't support it. In my 500 Jeffery shooting 570g TSX's, 2300 fps is fine, 2400 is a little painful, 2500 fps is friggin unbearable.
