Generally speaking, other than English, European languages have standard rules for proper pronunciation of vowels. If the proper pronunciation differs from the standard there is generally a mark, an accent mark, a squiggle, two dots, a circle or a curved line or some other mark with the letter tell you to use the "other" standard rule.

Sako is Finnish, so should follow standard Finnish rules.

English has its own rules a standard for regular words, another for foreign words adopted into English, and yet another for proper names.

And then there is the way many people say them, which follows no rule at all.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
