Savage

Introduced by Savage Arms Company for the Model 99 lever action in 1920, the .300 Savage was intended to duplicate the performance of the original U.S. Ball Cartridge, caliber .30, Model of 1906.

The .300 Savage is the perfect complement to the Model 99 lever action rifle. Until the introduction of the .308 Winchester, the .300 Savage was the only .30-caliber cartridge suitable for use in short action rifles. While not recommended for large bear, the .300 Savage has proven its effectiveness on all other large game in North America under most conditions. The .300 Savage is an excellent hunting cartridge as is. Shooters shouldn't attempt to squeeze out the last bit of velocity possible.

When loading pointed projectiles in this cartridge, bullets with shorter ogives are best suited for the Savage 99.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .300 Savage is 46,000 C.U.P.

Hunting Mastery Selected Tips

Hunting Mastery Selected Tips

Deer hunting is an interesting thing that reminds you of those golden old ages of 19th centuries, where a handsome hunk well equipped with all hunting material rides on horse searching for his target animal either for the purpose of displaying his masculine powers or for enticing and wooing his lady love.
