And it is scarce.  Can’t buy .300 Savage at Walmart.

It is a beautiful rifle.  Designed in 1892!  Produced from 1899 to 1998(!).

I did not know, that during WW1, Canada had it as a service rifle.  Wow.  I know of no other rifle that was chambered for so many calibers other than .300 Savage, itself an interesting caliber.

My personal connection;  Dad has Grandpa’s Savage 99.   I’ve had the privilege of shooting this rifle.  It is indeed a treat.
