    Sako TRG 42 .300 win mag





    I was cleaning my rifle, when I accidentally got cleaner between the barrel and the frame. I decide to take it a part and clean it. I thought I would share pics, since it look kinda cool.

    Nice setup mate, how about a range report with groups?? They should perform quite well from what I've heard.

    Was planing on getting out today, however the kids are sick and I was needed to help out. Next weekend for sure.

    Here we go. I went to the range 29 Aug 2008. Temp. 100F, wind no value, Ammo Black Hills Ammunition 300 Winchester Magnum 190 Grain Match Hollow Point Moly. This shot group is 8 rounds @ 100yrds. I did 8 because the mag holds 7 and one in the chamber. Last round I jerked the trigger.

    Could we get the specifics on that bipod... looks like it attaches to the sling stud - but then has its own frame so as the rifle sits below center line of the rifle. How do you like that setup?

    BTW... nice group with the Win Mag.

    The rifle was $2980.00. Considering that most custom rifles cost about the same and offer the same .5 moa guarantee, that's not bad. The extras are were they get you, the muzzle brake $190.00 and the bipod $475.00. The rings and base were about $230.00 (weaver base and mark 4 rings). The scope is a leupold mark 4 I had laying around I think it was like $1200.00. So the total is $4985.00 not including taxes or DROS fees. With the .308 and .300 win mag you could use a harris bipod and save a lot of money. Also, you don't need a muzzle brake with .308 or the .300 win mag, however, the .300 would have a lot more recoil without the muzzle brake.
