Savage

Designed by Charles Newton for Savage Arms Company, the .250-3000 derives its name from its original loading which propelled an 87-grain bullet at 3,000 fps.

The .250 Savage (as it is known today) has been chambered in several firearms. It offers flat trajectory, excellent accuracy and adequate killing power on deer-sized animals while producing relatively light recoil and low noise. It is a fine choice for recoil sensitive shooters.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for this cartridge is 45,000 C.U.P.
