    .22 Hi Power Chrono Session

    Took the wonderful 100+ year old Savage 99 to the range today and tested the three different kinds of .22 Hi Power ammo I had on hand:

    Sellier & Bellot 70 gr soft point = 2622 fps

    Imperial (Canadian) 70 gr soft point = 2705 fps

    Norma 71 gr soft point = 2561 fps

    It sure is a nice shooting little rifle. I thoroughly enjoy shooting this nice old Savage. It will never win any rifle accuracy awards, but it handles great and shoots softly. Very nice old rifle. Glad it's in my hands.



    I'll get around to running some handloads over the chronograph some other day.

    I always wanted a hp but just never ran into one, "yet" I am glad it has a good home. have you tried any handloads? I am surprised the Norma was the slowest. they use to load some fairly hot stuff, but maybe because of the caliber with old rifles they kept it a little mild.
    I have never harvested an animal but I have KILLED QUITE A FEW !

    I would rather have a gun in my hand than a cop on the phone,,,,,,,,,

    I'll have to chronograph some handloads a different day.

    Norma's ammo surprised me as well, they do have a reputation for loading a mite on the warm side. Not with this stuff! Likely in deference to the old lever action rifles chambered for the cartridge. My rifle was built in 1913 according to Savage collectors.
