This rifle has been a pleasure to work with since I purchased it. I don't know why that should surprise me. It simply performs reliably with every handload I've fed it in the 85-100 grain categories. When I mention it, I often hear shooters comment that they thought it was an "obsolete" cartridge, primarily because the .250-3000 has been overlooked as a factory chambering by sporting arms manufacturers for some time, and I think that's an oversight, but it's one of the first I reach for when I don't know what I'll encounter...a role that used to belong to my bolt action .30-'06.

Wow, what a treasure. Hope to find a few to pass on to my kids.

What a jewell! I got my hopes up when I heard that Savage was now chambering the .250 Savage in several product lines... until I learned that none of the lefty lines were included...

I've always thought the .250/3000 a better all around cartridge than the .243 Winchester.

That looks like a fine rifle that any of us would be proud of. Weatherby offered a limited run MK V in .250 Savage called the "Whitetail Deluxe" for 1993 only that I would like to run across. I think the .250 would be a fun round to have and shoot.

Any objective review I've read of the .250 usually praises the cartridge. I've built two .257 Roberts rifles, one based on a Rem 700 long action and another on an M98 Mauser action. Both were good .25 caliber rifles, but they quickly passed from my hands for other options. I made the mistake of selling one .250; I'll not sell this one!
I enjoy and recommend the .243 as a coyote round, but I've not been particularly comfortable recommending it for deer (though I don't dispute it's up to the task). I like the .250 for coyotes and deer, and it has served me well.

I met a fanatic mule deer hunter in eastern Washington when I was young. He shot the #2 Pope & Young mule deer record for Washington state in the 80's. His choice for rifle hunting: a Savage 99 in .250 Savage.

The Savage Model 99 was a stroke of genius, a fine choice, and one of my favorites. You'll get no argument on that from me.
