The reported estimated length of time the culled badgers took to die has to be wrong. There can be no explanation other than that those opposed to the cull have claimed this to prevent further...

So far, I'm safely up to around 3700 fps. I'm struggling for time, but am trying slower powders and tougher brass than the WW I was advised to use. To be honest, I think 3750 fps will be the safe max...

I'm disappointed with the velocities I've achieved from my 26" barreled 20-250 Sako AII so far. What are you hoping to achieve?

Vixen is merely a name used to signify that your A1's have a short action. The medium actions (22/250, 243, 308 etc) were known as 'Forester' and the long actions 'Finnbear'.
I have certainly never...

20-250

Anyone used bullets lighter than 50 grains in a 20-250?
I've SPL waxed some Sierra 39 grain ones, but have never seen any data for this bullet. Anyone know what velocitiy it should stand?

Tikkas having single stack rather than staggered magazines tend to be forgiving, but there's only one way to find out. Have it built, worse case scenario is you'll have a nice single shot rifle!

Sako re-barreling

As I know you're all so good as mentors here, let me pose a question.
I bought a Sako A2 Varmint in .308 a few weeks ago, intending to take its 2 stage match trigger and bottom metal off, exchange...

It will be his main fox and crow rifle and will also be used for long range rabbits. There are no coyotes over here, I'm afraid!
He'll be using 25 grain Bergers and, occasionally, 20 grain V-Max...

17 Fireball

I've located a Sako A1 action for a friend who wants a 17 Fireball building on it. He wants to use 25 grain bullets.
Would you go for a 1 in 9 or 1 in 10 twist barrel?
Pacific offer a choice of...

I've used N135 and N140 in my 17 Rems for years. N120, as others have said, is way too fast for the calibre.

I think South Yorkshire Shooting Supplies may be able to get you one- they certainly have the sako model in stock.

George,
I think you're missing the point of my posts! I use Bergers instead of Hornady bullets and I therefore have no problems!
