Vero Velini is the way to go for a sling.

Those are some great looking slings. Looks like they would be really comfortable for carrying a heavy rifle on a long hike through the hills.

First you have to answer the question if you want the sling only to help carry the rifle or also to help stead your shot.

 

Carry Slings:  Don't use them but there are many newer options with flexible neoprene inserts which help decrease the felt weight of the rifle on your shoulder.

 

Shooting Slings:  This is the real advantage of a sling.  And for me I only use Ching Slings.  The newer Safari Ching Sling made by Galco, allows a ching mounted on a two swivel mounts instead of the traditional three.  I can move from carry to shooting position in seconds and get very steady hold off-hand and rock solid kneeling.

 

Enjoy your new Sako 300WSM; its a sweet rifle

The type of sling depends on the width and drop of your shoulder. If you are one of those guys on steroids and have a neck that ends at the acromian process, a wide sling will slip off your shoulder continually, Thinner frames can use wider slings. Personally I like one  thinner, such that it "catches" on the shoulder and is not falling off all the time. additionally it works much better than the wide ones for "slinging up" for a shot. Bianchi makes very good ones, and I've had some of theirs for 20 years. Parachute (cargo) drag rope makes good slings, very comfy, a little stretch, just the right width, light, doesn't make the shoulder sweat, cheap, hard to get on sling swivels, ugly.

Vero-Vellini for me.  I use it for carrying and to steady a shot, works great for both.

i love butler creek. they are the most comfortable slings i have ever used. I have one on my ruger m77 and one on my 10/22. My dad and i went on an elk hunt and i borrowed the butler creek off my m77 to put on his m77 and it worked really well. we had to hike about 1.5 miles up a hill with about a 50 degree incline. the sling was perfect. I use the comfort strech sling
