    Sako Trg-S Accuracy

    I picked up a Sako Trg-S in 270 Weatherby with a low round count. I haven't had it to the range yet, but I was wondering anyone who has one of these how is the accuracy on them.

    Hi

    I could comment only the Sako TRG22 since our police are using those rifles along with Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 PM II! Test bullet was PPU FMJ 165 grs (Serbian made). Target was 20mm located 200m away (200+ yds).All five bullets went through with no prob.
    Hope this helps a bit.

    For you folks unfamilar with the metric system 25mm is about 1 in, so 20 mm at 200 m is a little under .5 moa. Exellant shooting.

    Don't get me wrong I didn't do the shooting part! I was just an observer

    Well I took the rifle to the range today.

    First load 140gr Accubond, IMR7828 67 grs... First two shots touching on all groupings, 3rd shot was 1/2" off to the right as barrel heats.

    Second load 140gr TSX, IMR 7828 67grs.... same point of impact and exactly the same groups. First two in ragged hole, 3rd slightly to the right.

    I am sure if I let the barrel cool for 5 minutes between shots, they would be in one ragged hole.....

    Its a hunting rifle and not a target shooter, so I am very happy with it since I picked it up for 700 cdn....

    Yeah, if I don't get him in the first shot, I am sure the buck isn't waiting for the third one.....

    Overall, very happy with first load tested.
