    Default 370 Sako magnum

    Shooting times made mention of 370 Sako Magnum. Apparently federal will make ammo and is identical to European 9.3 X 66. Anyone know more? Will rifles be available on this side of the pond?

    Default 370 Sako Mag

    This taken from the Outdoor Life web site re the 2008 Shot Show.

    Teaming up with Sako, Federal introduces the Cape-Shok .370 Sako Magnum. A .30/06 case necked up to take .366-diameter bullets, it offers similar performance to the European 9.3x66mm Sako Magnum while employ-ing a standard-length action that allows more rounds to fit in the magazine. Well-suited to hunting large animals at modest ranges, it will be offered this year with a 286-grain Nosler Partition or a 286-grain Barnes TSX.

    Midwayusa says coming soon when you search it on their site.

    Go here Federal Premium Ballistics, scroll down to Premium CapeShok scroll down to the bottom, check both rounds (370 SAKO MAGNUM), click compare, and you will get the ballistics comparison for each bullet. If you want you can compare the round to any other just click on the rounds you want to compare it with.

    Keep yer powder dry. GUNNER!!!

    Default 370 Sako

    The Federal site shows a belted magnum.... looks like a 300 win mag case necked up to .366. It will exceed the 9.3 x 66 Sako since the case is larger. It will give the 375 H&H and the 6.3 x 64 a run. I wish they had just stayed with the 9.3 x 64 or reintroduced the Brenneke. One more cartridge to split up the market more. It will be a good round though and give the 375 Ruger a good run. Nice to see more action in the truly classic 9.3 mm caliber.

    The picture on that page is a 300 win mag.

    I did not see any pics of the 370 sako on the Federal website.

    Found a couple more pics of the new 370 Sako magnum. First pic is a comparison to the 30-06, second is the Federal load.
    Anyone have any more updates on this new cartridge? Thanks

    Looks to be a fine round! I can see the wildcatters all over this case, perhaps one in 7mm diameter would be interesting. An increase over the 280 but not so overbore like the belted mags.
