Weaver Windage Adjustable Sure-Grip rings were finally delivered on Saturday. The D&T was way out of alignment, with one hole that was incompletely tapped. All better now, but I used every bit of the windage adjustment in the rings. This is a 1937 Model EG in .300 Savage. It came to me with the factory rear sight blanked, and a period Redfield tang mounted receiver sight. It was missing the aperture, so I gave it a Merit adjustable. With the scope mounted, I adjust the aperture to the bottom and left limits to clear the ocular.

Somebody has a 1936 Model 99 .300 Savage for sale about an hour and a half drive from me. They are asking $400. I may have to make a drive this weekend

Looks like a good deal! Take-downs can vary from too loose to too tight, so judge that carefully if you go.

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.

Sav 99
2514 FPS
1.750 MOA, 5 shots @ 100-yards

Rem 722
2634 FPS
1.706 MOA, 5 shots @ 100-yards

Oh, the dog is being fostered and will go to its new owner today.
