Finland's Sako recalls rifle cartridges

NewsRoom Finland

11/11/05

Finnish rifle and ammunition maker Sako announced Thursday it was recalling rifle cartridges of the calibre 308 Winchester made between 1990 and 1992.

According to the manufacturer, said the cartridges may have corrosion damage that could cause the cartridge case to fail when firing. Sako says the failure is not likely to break a weapon, but may cause a backward discharge of cordite gases.

Hopefully being that old there shouldn't be that much of that ammo still in circulation.I'm glad I have 2 very safe Sako rifles with shielded bolts and safety features built in .My gunsmith recommended Sakos over many other rifles.
