BE ON TOP OF YOUR GAME We at Sako have a passion for hunting. We believe that it is a truly unique sport and we want to provide you with the perfect cartridge for each situation. Our history started 100 years ago in 1921 from handmanufactured firearms. Since 1928, we have continuously been manufacturing rifle cartridges. We are one of the few in the industry who still manufacture both guns and cartridges – with this exceptional experience, we know what it takes to make a perfect cartridge. Even though high technology has since been introduced, we strive to maintain that same level of uncompromising craftsmanship. As hunters, the quality of our cartridges is a matter of pride.

We utilize modern computer-aided R&D and CNC manufacturing methods and automatic inspection machines, but also examine each individual brass case and cartridge by hand for quality assurance purposes. All Sako cases and bullets are reloadable and because of their sturdy quality, are said to outlast the competition. All Sako cartridges comply with C.I.P requirements.

Choosing the right cartridge is no small thing. It’s all about knowing your rifle, the nature surrounding you and especially the animal you are hunting. To make the selection process easier for you, we have introduced a color-coded categorization for our cartridges. Bonded or non-bonded? Rapid or controlled expansion? You know the basics at a glance, so you never have to struggle with wrong cartridges ever again. With Sako Cartridges you’re entitled to demand perfection.


DEMAND PERFECTION Making rifles and cartridges is a matter of pride as much as it is about offering hunting enthusiasts the best combined cartridge and rifle performance on the market. It’s rare that the same production plant manufactures both rifles and cartridges: we are one of the few who really know how guns and cartridges work together. Since 1921, Sako has developed the world’s most accurate rifles and cartridges, using the latest technology as well as traditional gunsmith craftsmanship.

PRECISION LOADED WITH ONLY THE BEST QUALITY COMPONENTS

UNCOMPARABLE STOPPING POWER

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

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. With our cartridges, you can trust to be on top of your game.

THE BEST RELOADABILITY IN THE INDUSTRY Due to a proprietary heat treatment method, as well as zero impurities of the case material, our cartridges have the highest reloadability and pressure resistance in the industry, maximizing the lifespan and safety of any rifle. The small-diameter grain structure of Sako brass is superior to the average metallurgic microstructure of other high-quality brass.

EXTREME ACCURACY AND SOLID PERFORMANCE All Sako and Tikka rifles are tested to guarantee 1 MOA accuracy – straight out of the box. All tests are carried out with Sako’s high-quality ammunition. Our products are continuously tested for Sako´s high standards on accuracy, performance, stopping power and reliability. We are proud of our long legacy as one of the most appreciated manufacturers in the industry.

RELOADING COMPONENTS

CASES CALIBER

Sako Cartridges are famous for their first-rate bullets and premium brass. Every bullet and case are individually inspected by both machine and hand: the deviation of the highest quality single-base powder charge is minimized and the ignition time of the primers remains constant, providing quality that exceeds the precision of handloading. Due to a proprietary Sako annealing as well as uniform and clean microstructure of our case material, our cartridges have the industry’s highest reloadability and maximized pressure resistance. This increases the lifespan and safety of any rifle. The heavy-duty quality of Sako cartridges meets the experienced shooters’ demands for accuracy and durability. Our cartridges are designed to perform at the range and outside on the woods when they are developed at the Sako ballistics laboratory. The cartridges are also tested during real big game hunts for optimal weight retention and double-diameter mushrooming for maximum impact.
