That head line should read CAN'T Handle. The 358 Shooting Times Alaskan on the 7.5 pound Sako AIII has broken another retention springy button that keeps the guide bar (the piece that looks like a Mauser extractor) This tiny piece, when it brakes , allows the guide bar to lock up the action.
I guess the recoil is to great on the part.
Although not much of the action smoothness is lost with the guide, brackets, and spring in the parts drawer would you shoot it without?
