    Savage 300

    Since they cancelled Wanamacher's show I decided I'd go to the little show at Tulsa today. I was almost to the door when I saw this old rifle. The seller was a regular so I stopped to visit. It was real slow today with the rain and the China flu scare. He said make me an offer so I did. I got this old 99 Savage in 300 savage. It's got a Nikon 3-9 pro staff with the BDC reticle. Old rifle looks to have been well taken care of. The serial # is 7481xx
    with what looks like a C on the lever housing. I'm thinking its from the early 50s. I've already got one lesson, I
    stopped at Bass Pro on the way home and bought one box of ammo. Over $2 each, one box was all I wanted.
    Here is what she looks like. CliffName:  image.jpeg

    That is a beautiful looking Savage, love the one my Brother and I share between us, there is just something about the .250-3000 caliber that does it for me. Easy on the shoulder and it seems easier on the ears.

    My Brother has a custom bolt rifle built by the late , great local gunsmith Grant Dick chambered in .300 Savage and even after 50+ years it's a tack driver.

    Yesiree, my 250-3000 (250 Savage) is one of my favorites............3000 FPS was whistling Dixie back when the cartridge was developed (no slouch today either).....

    Nice, you'll notice how smooth the action is at the range. The brass round counter and rotary magazine were innovative for its productive time.
