Just in time for moose season!
My new left handed Sako Model 85 Hunter in 9.3x62 is finally here! Only took 11 months to come in.
Has some nice fiddleback in the finish when the light hits it right. Will get the good Dr to post pics as I do not use photobucket, after I get scope mounted.
Looks good paired with my matching lh 6.5x55, although I did order the 9.3 w/ open sights.
Picking up my rings and bases at the post office tomorrow so that I can mount the used Kahles 30mm 1.5-6 power scope I picked up for it this spring.
Have a bit of ammo for it, but have located a dealer with some different factory loads to try out in it;
Nosler 250 gr AccuBonds,
Federal 186 gr Swift A-Frames, and
Lapua 186 gr Megas

Have dies, so will be working on a handload with which ever bullet it shows a preference for.

Gil,
Congratulations on your new moose rifle. Should be a sledgehammer on those big bulls that are up in your neck of the woods. Why the long wait? Left handed?

Apparently Sako only ships 5 LH 9.3x62's per year to North America and if the US orders take them all, none make it to Canada (according to importer). I was informed that it could take up to a year when I ordered it last August. Plus ordering it with open sights.

Got the Kahles mounted, but cannot find my ammo today. Will order some. Can't wait to shoot it!

Gil asked that these photos of his rifles be posted. He'll be along shortly to give us the rundown on which is which.

Nice looking wood on those rifles.
Not to change the subject but have you heard from Cheyenne?
I was wondering how she's getting along since she hasn't answered my PM.

Gil,
Beautiful rifle. Hope you can find some ammunition to shoot it.
What about just getting brass and bullets and start loading?

Thanks!

The Norma brass I bought at the gunshow last year, along with the Norma ammo is MIA at the moment! Know where the bullets are.
Need to dig a little deeper in the closet! LOL
Just a matter of time...
Got the Nosler and Lapua ammo ordered today. Want to try it anyway.
