Not much to getting this rifle up and running. I took some ammunition that had been loaded for my Rem 722 chambered in 300 Savage using the Speer #2017 Round Nose Hot Core, a bullet that was designed specifically for the 300 Savage and I had it sighted in at 100 and 200 yards in 10 shots. The same night at about 9:00, I killed a small porker at 70-yards.
The 99 has a 22" barrel and the velocity loss vs. the Rem 722's 24" was more than I expected. The 99's MOA is giving the 722 are run for the money though.
1.750 MOA, 5 shots @ 100-yards
1.706 MOA, 5 shots @ 100-yards
Oh, the dog is being fostered and will go to its new owner today.
