Had some spare time today and took my SVT40 to the range.
Rene (Dutch Sako) was there too.
He shot his Sako TRG22 today.
Great rifle, but every shot blows you from the range when you’re not behind the TRG.
Made some pictures of Rene’s TRG22.

I made this picture some time ago on a nearby military range.

You are very right Pete...........and a fantastic shooter too.
I think Rene said that the reloaded ammo performed better compared to the commercial ammo.
I'll ask him to post some reloading data in here.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

The TRG22 is in .308 or 7.62x51 NATO.

I forgot to mention this.
Even this rifle can't beat a Mosin Nagant, because..............it is a Mosin Nagant. :D :grin:
The TRG22 and its bigger brother TRG42 (cal .338 Lapua Magnum) are the commercial version of the Finnish Tkiv 85 sniper rifle.
The Tkiv 85 is based on the Mosin Nagant.

Here's a link with some info on the Tkiv 85.
