250 savage

Just picked up another savage 99 in trade. This one being a 250 savage. Anyone here shoot this caliber? Just wondering how it has worked on deer. Mine is an older savage so it has the 1:14 twist. From what I have read I will be limited to 100 grain bullets on the top end. This is fine by me. I have slowly been accumulating brass so I can load some rounds

Re: 250 savage

One of my favorite cartridges...H414 works great...kills without excessive tissue damage...twin to the .243...very easy to find accurate loads...

Re: 250 savage

We have had a 99 250 in our family for almost 70 years. I can't even come with the actual number of people who have shot their first deer with it. I just passed it on to my brother for his children and generations to come. That being said, 100 grain bullets shoot fantastic out of the model 99 250. My wife loved shooting that caliber so much I bought her a savage weather warrior. I shoot h4350 in both guns. You'll love it. Great purchase

Re: 250 savage

The 250 Savage is an excellent deer cartridge. I have used 100gr Core-Lokts. I have used h380 and when necessary reformed 22-250 brass.

Re: 250 savage

Superd, is that the best way to go? I'm going to have to do something eventually but I thought stretching the necks would really shorten case life.

Strut. The barrel is marked 250-3000. It was made in 1953.

Re: 250 savage

Case life may be shortened but with the availability of 22-250 brass at this time it is usable alternative

10-4

One day I was playing with an old buddy's 99. Don't remember the letter. But it was a spotless, straight wristed example with a vintage 4x Weaver on it. The barrel was stamped ".250 Savage". Have NEVER seen another one so stamped.

CONGRATS on your new scoop !! Oughta be a fun old gal to play with.

Re: 250 savage

Don't have a 99 in a 250. But I do have a 700 classic. I handload all my rifle calibers. and I am a 25 caliber fan. With my 700 I loaded many different combos. But I have not handloaded one yet that shoots like the factory 100 gr Remington factory rounds. This may sound stupid but I have been handloading for 40 years but it is what it is. I love the caliber. But I do have a 358 Win in a 99 and its a sweet gun.
