Bush,
simply amazing. Those are a very classy pair of deer wackin iron from the "Good Ol Days"
If they are like the ones I have shot they are accurate as well as good looking.
Thank you for the pictures

Very nice rifles.
That's one of the rifles and calibers on my bucket list.
Great classic scopes too.
300 Savage would make a great Encore pistol caliber too.
Seen a few 99s online, but none local and I have to look one over very carefully with what they run these days.
Thanks foe sharing.

I have a model 99 in .300 Savage that my Grandfather bought used in 1939. It is in excellent condition and is very accurate. My Grandsons will really enjoy this rifle when I give it to them.

Before I got hooked on trap I had 20 some Mod. 99s.
My favorite for deer was one in 358 Winchester.
My only complaint was the lack of ammo varieties.

250 savage is another caliber I've wanted to work with, along with other 25s; 257 Roberts, 257 R Improved, 25-284. I love the wildcats :)
I have a couple of 25-06s. Great long distance shooter, but the 250 savage in a 99 would do 90 percent of what the 2506 can do.
redd, the 358 is another great caliber. Bullet selection is getting better, which makes it more attractive for reloading.

Here's my contribution to this thread.
1956 Model R, 358 Win. first year Savage offered a 358.
It's for sale if someone is interested.
