New member here. I just came home with a Sako S20 in 6.5 Creedmore w/precision stock. Not sure how accurate they are but at my age it will probably outshoot me. And there's not a lot of rifles to pick from right now

I have to buy dies and brass yet but found both. I did score 3 boxes of Hornady 143-XLD-X's with the gun. so happy about that

Those S20's look really interesting, may I ask what it cost? Ammo wise I got tired of waiting for dealers to restock so I went ahead and bought off of a dealer on gunbroker, surprisingly it was cheaper than mail-order from the usual dealers, look there....

$1699 at Cabela's the precision stocked model is $100 more than the hunter
Cabela's used to be my favorite store in the whole world. When I go in now I just laugh. Their whole corporate mentality bought right in to and actively promoted all the hysteria

cool.

shoot it. post pics. this thread sucks without porn
Here's mine in .308. Don't know if it was a fluke but 3 shot cold bore 3/4MOA 100 yd with cheap ammo.
I'm a beginner at rifle so getting that to repeat will be the challenge/learning process

Cool rifle… like the man said, get them pics up! I ordered a set of dies from Whidden Gun Works. Expensive, but pretty damn minor compared to bullets, powder, primers, brass. I check Midsouth and Creedmoor on the regular for components and loaded ammo.

Can you report the actual weight of the precision version? W/24” barrel? I’ve been researching and keep seeing different figures. Want to keep the whole thing under 12#…. Thanks

As pictured, 20" w/3.5" brake, w/bipod, and 2+lbs optics, unloaded = 11.2 lbs
