Open-country hunters will appreciate the addition of 7mm Rem. Mag. and .300 Win. Mag chamberings to Sako’s 85 Carbonlight. Even with a 24-inch barrel, this rifle tips the scales at just a shade over six pounds, making it a joy to carry on long days. A detachable box magazine, fluted barrel and muzzle-break are standard, and the soft-touch surface on the carbon-fibre stock ensures a positive grip.
