    I am fortunate to be the caretakers for the next generation of circa 1936, 303 Savage M99-H. That round really surprised me at how well it shoots "at a 100" with the Redfield receiver sight -- just wish my eyes were age 16, not 73!

    When I see it and the Remington M81, .35 Rem. in the vault, I think of the now long gone hunters I knew as a lad in the 1950's and the 99's and M81's they carried afield.
    In real life may you be the bad ass you claim to be on social media....

    Very nice indeed dallas!! I have two 99s in 303 Savage. I whacked a whitetail doe a few years back with this one made in 1904. That 303 dropped it at the shot. - T.S.

    I like the Remington 8 and 81s too. My Remington 8 is in 35 Remington and two 81s are in 300 Savage. Fascinating rifles.

    Sweet! Looking forward to a range report. I'd have been on that like a hog on a turnip.

    How many people can say they have an octagon barrel Savage 99 or 95? That is a handsome firearm. I would hunt the pi$$ out of that rifle. It may not be a Savage caliber but the .308 can make a strong argument for being the best all around game cartridge. Ammo everywhere and in all kinds of loads.

    Congrats on a nice grab!

    T.S. - Nice one! Sounds like you picked it up for a good price, too. It would have be interesting to be a fly on the wall when Savage was discussing/deciding what cartridge to chamber it in.

    Dallased ... nice pair of 1895s!

    As an aside, Savage is now offering their 125th Anniversary model via special order. It is based on the 110 action and offered in five calibers (243 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 250 Sav, 300 Sav and 308 Win). I came really close to ordering one in 250 Savage. https://www.savagearms.com/content?p=125th
