Beretta Imports Sako Cartridges
Sako Cartridges won’t be new to those familiar with European hunting and markets. In production since 1928, modern Sako ammo utilizes the latest computer-aided R&D and CNC manufacturing methods, according to Beretta. The company performs a series of auto and manual inspections, ensuring quality and accuracy. Additionally, a proprietary heat treatment method makes the ammo highly reloadable and resistant to pressure, according to Beretta.
“The whole team at Sako is excited to introduce our range of ammunition into the US market,” said Phillip Jones, Rifle, Ammunition, and Premium Guns Product Manager. “With a diverse group of products including the TRG line of Precision Cartridges and the innovative Powerhead Blade lead free family, Sako Cartridges are made using world class components to give reliability, accuracy, and repeatability – no matter if you’re on the range or in the back country.”
