Muzzle Velocity: 2690 fps.
Heavy jacketed, strong and non-fragmenting, ensuring controlled expansion. Bonded core construction produces high weight retention, producing good penetration. Boat-tailed for high-ballistic efficiency means flatter trajectory. First developed and tested in Sako ballistic laboratories, followed by actual extensive big game hunting tests.
All Sako and Tikka rifles and cartridges are tested to guarantee 1 MOA or better accuracy - straight out of the box. Their products are continuously tested for Sako’s high standards on accuracy, performance, stopping power and reliability.
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.
Due to a proprietary heat treatment method, as well as zero impurities of the case material, their cartridges have the industry’s highest reloadability and pressure resistance, maximizing the lifespan and safety of any rifle.

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.
Sako manufactures cases and bullets suited for reloading. Their heavy-duty quality meets the experienced hunter’s demands for accuracy and durability.
The Sako Mobile Ballistics App is an easy-to-use ballistic calculator allowing hunters and long-range shooters to identify the right cartridge for the given purpose. You can also use the calculator in your browser.
