If you really like the .250 Savage (that is your opinion) you might start looking for a Savage Model 99 take down in that caliber which is a fun, unique rifle in a relative obsolete caliber.


I had a guy come in just the other day and ask for .250 Savage rounds, I just about slapped him.

I imagined you had the same look on your face as your avatar!

Savage triggers are rough unless adjusted, or accutriggers. Best way is just an aftermarket trigger.


I did my own trigger work and it turned out very good, stock it was harsh. Small file and snips, consistent 3.15# pulls.

Isn't that what they call people from North Carolina?

I thought ****'s were from Oregon?

If that's a vague Clyde reference 2 points for you.

That's what it was, but I put an unneeded apostrophe before the s.

I would consider it a small caliber if it shoots bullets under 90 grains.


Anything capable of taking down elk is not small caliber, and you know as well as I do that a .257 is more than capable of that. I'd draw the line at 6mm, and even that is pushing it. I'd say 75 grains and under is a better range.

I wouldn't judge it based of elk killing power, but that's just me. I know a handful of people that shoot elk with .223s and .22-250s. I do get what you're saying though. :thumbsup:

Savage?

It's all relative.
To to a guy who's main weapon is a .300 Wby, a .223 seems like a cap gun, and once you've reloaded for a .14 Walker Hornet, a .223 seems like an elephant gun.

Valid point...

I would have no problem taking my Savage pushing a .257 115gn "BULLET" on an elk hunting trip.

Neither would I. I've shot elk with the 6mm Remington, .25-06 Remington, and the .270 Winchester.

You guys trust yourselves too much. :lol: I honestly wouldn't bring much under a .270 for elk, but that's just me. I am perfectly capable of the shot placement, just not confident that something wouldn't go wrong.

All I know was I was praying to god that my first elk would stay put. I'm glad I was able to anchor him at 437 yards with the 6mm but I sure as hell wouldn't try it again.

Just shoot a premium grade bullet and you'd be fine, just limit the range.

I think I'm going to scratch the idea of the .250 and wait for the new barrel burner on the market to come out from one of the major manufacturers; The .26 Nosler really isn't necessary but.....what the hell.
