I think you made the right decision...
I've heard that the new Sako 85's are lacking in quality,, but that was hearsay. I've shot a couple of 75's and know they were both very good shooters..
Thanks for the confirmation. I see Clearwater County in your signature...is that around Orofino? I spent last week fishing for B run steelhead over there. Go over every year for the last 4...love that area.
I'm about 20mi down river from Orifino,,, or 3mi below the Lenore Bridge for a reference point.
This should look familiar.. (Not the gun,,, the river.)
Shoot me a PM before ya come over next year,, maybe you'll have time to stop by for a cold beverage.. We can set on that deck and swap a few lies..
Oh yea,,, you might as well drop that Sako off with me while your here,, I can test drive it while you're fishing..
