Savage Model 99
Hard to beat as a good brush gun with 300 Savage 180 grain cartridges.
I get my moose to within 100 feet usually and also hunt where there are not many wide open areas where a long distance flat shooting rifle is required.
It's an older rifle but 5 rounds at the range and usually only 1 round for the hunt, it doesn't get a lot of rounds through it in a year.
I love the Savage! When I was a youngster my father had the Savage Model 99F in .308 caliber.
The 99F model has the built in rotary clip.
For those who don't know this model, the Savage Model 99 is a lever action rifle that was brought into production in 1899 as the first hammer-less lever action rifle.
The rotary magazine allowed the rifle to carry ammunition that was pointed to allow for greater velocity and energy down range. Unlike any of the other types of lever action rifles which were equipped with tubular magazines.
These firearms required blunt nose ammunition as well as crimped cases to prevent the bullet from moving in the brass casing during firing.
I still have the original bill of sale for my Dad's old Savage. I wish we still had that old rifle, it brings back lots of memories!Mark
