As squirrel_slayer mentions, the OAL can be problematic with 100 gr bullets or heavier. 100 grainers will have the end of the case neck forward (on the ogive) of the bullet's shank when seated to...

The Blue Book is the worst place to get values for Sakos. They can barely get the models right or listed properly & their "pricing" is no where near reality.

The 25-45 Sharps has a .378" case head diameter, while the 243 is .473", so you will need to do some type of modification to or change out the extractor/ejector so it fits the case rim.

My 6X45, built on a Sako L469, is my go to walk-about rifle. Will shoot 85 grain bullets right at 3000 FPS from a 24" barrel. Shoots 55 -75 grainers 3150 to 3250. Mine is a 10 twist & will steady...

Mulerider's comment about the trigger is spot on. Excellent design, easily adjusted, changing one spring can give it a very low pull weight & still maintain safety. Info on internet about modifying...

I load from the top single shot at the bench without issues. Was thinking of cutting the mag so it doesn't protrude & modifying it to stay in place.

Never got any good results with 30 or 35 grain bullets that I tried in the Hornet & 221 Fireball. I do use 37 grain Calhoon double hollow points in a Sako L46 222 & they shoot very nicely.

If it was designed for the 218 Bee then it was designed for a tubular magazine lever action. Would think there are many better bullets out there for the 222 Rem. Just sayin'!

Best to use a "sized" case done in "your" FL die, not a fired unsized case, as a Go-gauge. I use a .004" brass shim on back of case head for a No-Go gauge. Set it where bolt barely starts to close...

I think it's spelled "hydraulic". Unless "hydrolic" is some kind of proprietary name I am unaware of. Either way, I'm not sure they are worth the money & time for most wildcat applications unless you...

14 mm is actually .55" so the thumb & index finger should be sufficient. The OP is referring to .14" caliber, so tweezers might come in handy setting those bullets on top of a case neck.
