SAKO 85 Rifle Review.
The 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser or simply 6.5 Swedish as it is often referred, although relatively new amongst UK stalkers is not in fact a new calibre.
.308 Calibre Possibly one of the most successful and popular centre fire cartridges ever produced.
During the summer months when the under storey is up to your waist and crops in the adjacent fields are at full height, the possibility of taking prone and kneeling shots is negligible, and other alternative shooting positions must be adopted.
A while back I bought a pair of Bushnell range finder binoculars. The idea was that instead of having to carry a pair of binoculars and a range finder I could get the benefits of both in one package.
As stalkers and hunters the use of knives becomes second nature to us and as a result we often find that we become blase’ about carrying them, this can lead to misunderstandings and even your arrest so be careful.
As a professional stalker and guide I have noticed a growing trend away from the .243 and this has surprised me.
