This is a quick shot out to Jason @ Precision Rifle Hunters.

I took Jason’s class today and even with the inclement weather he had me hitting targets out to 800 yards in no time flat! Jason is an awesome shooting instructor and I can enthusiastically give his class two thumbs up. Prior to today I had never shot a rifle past three hundred yards, which as promised by Jason seems like no big deal anymore!

Thanks again Jason, I had a great time!

Brandon

Pleasure having you out, Brandon. Thank you for the kind review, and come back soon!

And you brought a dang fine shooting Tikka! 2" spread at 700 yards up

Wish we had something like that down in Webb. Been wanting to try it out but our local range only has up to 300 yards and I can't do much shooting on my place anymore since all the hippies moved in around us.

Jason said it was a bit "sporty" today but I had a few other words in my head while shooting the 800 yard target! We had plenty of wind but the rain was intermittent and not too heavy most of the day.

Rained most of the day, and the wind held at 10 mph and gusted to 20. It was a head wind and I hate a head wind. I told Brandon we could reschedule for next week, but he didn't want to he was looking forward to it so much. I'm down if you're down, so we flung lead all day in a storm.

Of course a Sako will get it done. As long as you feed it ammo it likes and you have the proper scope on top of it.

Jason, really like your site, I don't recall it looking like that before? looks sharp man up

My Sako we discussed last fall, "seems" to be tight as is, not sure if I need a good smith to tweak it though, like check float and whatever else is normally done to accurize it. I have stretched it to just over 400 ,longest with this rifle on an elk and it was spot on. Also would have to upgrade my scope IMO, to do the class.

KRoyal is in charge of the site now. He does good work!

Grab a dollar bill and see if it passes all the way to the recoil lug. If you have a bipod, attach it to the front sling stud and bump the legs up to something sturdy. You need another person, push the rifle very hard into the bipod and have the other person see if the dollar will still pass all the way to the recoil lug. That is checking the integrity of the stock while loading the bipod.

If the rifle will shoot a group of an inch, then it can shoot as far as you please.

I have plenty of scopes you can borrow, you just need a 20 MOA pic rail on top of the rifle. Then one of my scopes can be moved from my rifle to yours in about 45 seconds. Two shots later and it will be zeroed to your rifle.

KRoyal, it's all him. He didn't like my work and wanted to fix it.

Then when he shows up to the range I help fix rifle issus and help with load development question marks. He do what he do, and I do what I do. Works out great!

Every Sako I have owned would shoot a 1" or smaller group with the right ammo! Sign up, I promise you will have a blast!
