I would add that the weekend was 7 shots, 7 solid hits, 6 kills. Gave a doe an un-required second shot across a gully as I didn't want her to jump up and move. When i dressed her I realised that her heart was pretty much exploded and the head shot was not needed but better safe than sorry. I do love my little Sako !!

Great pics, Andy. cool

I love the Sako's as well, I've had two, a .17 and .308.

My Mannlicher is the only one that surpassed them in finish and quality, not accuracy though.

Those Yabbies look tasty.
We used get buckets of them out of the dams out near Collie. Used to set them in salty water to make them chuck up the mud, then gorge on them until we were nearly sick. laugh
