The Savage 99C

This gun is now sadly out of production but goes back quite a long ways. Earlier Model 99's can become quite valuable. This is chambered in .243 (6mm) and is beautifully balanced, with superb woodwork - aquired new from a raffle!.

Only equipped with a Tasco scope initially, that was changed to a Leupold as grouping seemed poor. This turned out not to be the problem and instead it would seem that it does not like the 105 grain heavy bullets that had been handloaded. It will probably perform better with a more standard 85 grain bullet weight, as possibly its twist is a major factor.
