Speaking of Savage 99s, anyone ever notice the one in the movie Joe Kidd? Bad guy Robert Duvall used it and it stuck out like rat sign in the sugar bowl. A real custom job with Roy Weatherby all over it and the scope, a modern Leupold. I guess they couldn't find one more appropriate to the time frame. Some really nice engraving on that rifle too.
I've had a couple older .303 Savages in the past but only have one in .358 these days. I don't shoot it much. Not sure is I'll keep it or send it down the road.
