Sidetrack: I used to shoot Palma course stuff, it's kinda popular in the Wisconsin area, as is prone long range stuff in general. It just wasn't popular among the junior shooters, probably because they mostly focused on DCM/CMP week service rifle stuff; the benefit of young eyes, I guess.

Wowzers, if you're interested in 280AI, I have a custom Rem700, McMillen stocked hunting rifle in 280AI I'd be willing to sell. Pm me if you're interested. S/F....Ken M

One of my favorites in the safe is a Remington Mod 81 in .300Sav. Classic Maine rifle, classic NE/PA round. Mine's from 1946, I think, will group 2" at 100yd and I've managed sub-6" at 220 seated and irons. The fat cartridge is a pussycat in this rig, you could shoot all day (humping the thing is another story).

Back in the day when I was more recoil tolerant I put a box of ammo through a Rem. 700. Remington offered a 220gr CorLok for the 8mm Rem. Mag IIRC.

When I shot it, it did not have a muzzle flash at all. It was an Fing mushroom cloud.

I have always been very impressed with its performance.

I almost bought a cherry 250 Savage a couple years ago. Would have been a great venison getter. After a little research the ammo is very hard to find so I passed on it.

A Savage 99 in 300 Savage or 250/3000 is probably the pinnacle of American lever rifle technology, as well as the machinist's art. If you can find one reasonable, it's a rifle worth owning. They will only appreciate in value. S/F....Ken M
