Talked to Sako guys at the Shot Show about 6.5 calibers for the M10. Hope, they heard me. My point was .260Rem, as they will not need to do additional researches and make another bolt. Everything fits from .308Win.
Lack of 6.5 calibers is what stops me from purchasing it.
Also they mentioned they are working on .300NM for M10...

I did a couple tweaks to the -22. First some paint, Custom Coatings did a great job. Second and more important I put in an adjustable cheekpiece made by Terje. I cannot recommend his work enough. He did an awesome job. Being able to dial in the cheekpiece height really made a difference to my consistency. I still need to have it painted.
Where did you get the adjustable cheekpiece? for ME this is the weak point of this terrific gun!

It makes a huge difference for me. The stock one is way too short. I got it from a hide member named Terje.
If you want I can email him and see if I can share his contact info.
If you look at this entire thread there is a guy who posted a pic with a different adjustable cheekpiece solution.
**EDIT** It is 1 page back. Benjammin posted the pic. He used a hide member called Stock Doc

Yes please, and also the cost. I am considering just making one from wood I have all the machines and skill to do it.

Does anyone know if M10 barrel and extensions are threaded or pressed in? Tying to get an estimated price for a 6.5 barrel. Still waiting on a reply from LRI.

I will figure out soon. I am in contact with the Sako engineers to make .260Rem at least for the M10 platform and if they say "no", the spare plan will be to go to LRI and order a barrel, preliminary price for a barrel with an extension is $1000. But if the order wil be 5-10 barrels, then that cost can be negotiable, I guess.

Cool, I got to speak to the engineers from Finland when they made a trip to Accokeek MD last year and they said there were no current plants to make one in 6.5. However, when I saw the TRG22A1 release at SHOT, I reached out to one of the Beretta/Sako reps who stated they are at least talking about it now. No word on a time frame.

Well it's official. I have fallen in love with the M10. Don't misunderstand me I still love my TRG but the M10 is a nice piece of kit.
I finally got it out a couple weeks ago to smack some steel, 12" plates from 200-900 yards. It was just FUN! It likes the Federal GM762M2 175s and really loves the 185 Juggernauts with 43.4 grains Varget/CCI BR2s and Lapua brass. (The fliers were me.) I am getting 2740 FPS with the 175s and about 2690 with the 185s out of a 26" barrel. I'd really like to find a higher node with 185s but I am worried about pressure. Brass looks fine so far.
I haven't found an optimal 338 load yet. I tried Retumbo but didn't see great results with Berger 300s. I have a big-assed jug of H1000 sitting in the garage. I think I will start with 250 SMKs then work up to the 300s.
