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.
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.

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. Download Sako reloading components PDF
