Picked up a Savage 1899 in SASS Wire Posted December 29, 2016 My grand father always called his 99 Savage in .250-3000 with Lyman 57 rear sight his "meat in the pot gun"..... I inherited it years ago and used it last weekend on a large body 3 point mule deer that lived in on a section of alphalfa field.....One shot with a 75 grain Accubond did the job. What a nostalgic journey for me....My dad's old Shrade LB-7 folding hunting knife did the field dressing..... Although both have been deceased for many years, they were both with me on last weekends hunt. How do you improve on THAT? Bugler You don't. Maybe take the kids with ?? Great to have those things in the family.
