100 DIFFERENT LOADS IN 32 POPULAR CALIBERS

Naturally, we have chosen the best components to meet the needs of hunters and shooters. Our cartridge table contains relevant information on calibers, bullet types and their trajectories.

UNRIVALED ACCURACY AND CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE

All Sako and Tikka rifles and cartridges are tested to guarantee 1 MOA or better accuracy – straight out of the box. Our products are continuously tested for Sako’s high standards on accuracy, performance, stopping power and reliability.

PRECISION LOADING OF ONLY THE BEST QUALITY COMPONENTS

Every bullet and case is individually inspected, the deviation of the highest quality single-base powder charge is minimized and the ignition time of the primers remains constant, providing for a quality that exceeds the precision of hand loading.

RELOADABILITY

Due to a proprietary heat treatment method, as well as zero impurities of the case material, our cartridges have the industry’s highest reloadability and pressure resistance, maximizing the lifespan and safety of any rifle.

STOPPING POWER

All hunting loads and bullets are developed at the Sako ballistics laboratory. They are tested during real big game hunts for optimal weight retention and double-diameter mushrooming for maximum impact.

RELOADING COMPONENTS

Sako manufactures cases and bullets suited for reloading. Their heavy-duty quality meets the experienced hunter’s demands for accuracy and durability.

NEW LONG RANGE CALIBER AVAILABLE
