@Mattl46: I didn't know that about the sako safeties on the earlier actions. Interesting.
@sundog: Yes I had to laugh at the "inferior ballistics", too. I guess I should go sell my .221, and two hornets because they're inferior and it's unmanly to own them.
Also, I hadn't heard the 7 x 61 Sharpe and Hart mentioned for a long time. I wonder if it's still in the current loading manuals? Although I would bet you could find data on it in back issues of Handloader magazine.
And I like bumblebug's characterization of "legacy cartridge". I'm going to borrow that term.
