I just wanted to pick the brains (and experience) of the very knowledgable folk here about which rifle I have the option of buying. I have the option of buying either a 'second hand' Sako 75 Finnlight in .300 Win Mag (in excellent condition) or a 'new' Sako 85 Finnlight in .300 Win Mag or .300WSM.
I've owned both calibres before in other rifles. My questions are;
1/ Does the 75 handle recoil better than the 85 in .300 Win Mag?
2/ Can you buy a screw on 'prefit' Limbsaver recoil pad for the 85 Finnlight like you can for the 75 Finnlight?
3/ Which calibre would you choose in the 85 Finnlight? The .300 Win Mag or the .300WSM? Do you feel one action length (L or SM) handles, balances or feels better than the other?
4/ Do you find accuracy in either of the two calibres to be on par with each other or have you found one to be more accurate than the other?
Many thanks in advance.
