Talked about my sickness with guns a couple weeks ago, well, I went through with it today.

The nice folks at Europtics had a Sako 85 Bavarian Carbine (full length wood stock) with beautiful wood in the 6.5X55 Swede, (no .260's for a year).

Staying with the European look, I went with the new Nightforce SHV 2-10X42, IHR reticle. Ha Ha

Order for dies, brass, yada, yada in to Midway.

Should be hear next week, I'll send pics, and a range report, probably not in time for Opening day.

Stay tuned elmer

Color me jealous, sounds like a very nice rig.

Always wanted a full length stock and I would rather have a 6.5x55 than a 260, just personal preference. Must post pics

I want a 6.5X55 Swede very badly. 'Have a couple of Mannlicher stocks, .338 and 7X57. Sako also makes some lefties, but I think they leave the safety on the right, at least that's the way the .338 is.

Looking forward to the pictures also.
