A buddy of mine brought over a Savage Model 1914 pump .22.
A little research on it told me that roughly 50K were made from 1914 'til about 1926.
With the serial # in the 10,000 range I'm guessing that it was born in the mid to late
teens. Although .22 LR is stamped on it, I'm thinking that with a gun that old may not be a
good idea to run high/hyper velocity ammo thru it since only standard velocity long rifle
ammo was possibly available at that time. Any thoughts on the ammo?

All of my older ones from about same time I shoot just 22 LR but no stingers or Aguilla super hot ammo. They operate just fine. I would just shoot the normal LR you use for tatrget shooting.
