They don’t use a mass produced hammer forged barrel, and they do everything else right. Sako can make a better hammer forged barrel than just about anyone, but a Cooper or a 40X might have a slight accuracy edge over a factory Sako that doesn’t say “Benchrest” on it.
I’ve got a ton of Sakos and few will shoot this good. I asked the receptionist at a Cooper where they got their barrels and she said Wilson, as was mentioned earlier. It is interesting to see this consistency and quality hang in there across the full spectrum rifles and calibers.
I will be looking for more in the future...
