|Bret4207 said: (quoted from post at 09:15:06 12/30/12) Bob, I have a Ruger 77 Ultra Light 250 Savage in a very light composite stock. Wonderful rifle. I hope one day to find an affordable 99 Savage in 250.|
I had one for a while. Late 1940's 99, fancy wood, Lyman tang sight, 1 in 14 twist. Wouldn't shoot anything over 80 grains well, shot 87s OK if pushed till there were pressure signs. IMHO, the 1 in 14 twist of the Savages negates the dual purpose aspect of the cartridge. This post was edited by RGMartin at 06:31:24 12/30/12.
