300 Savage Ammo

Savage Arms Company introduced the.300 Savage in 1920 with its Model 99 lever-action rifles and Model 1920 bolt action rifles. The.30/06 was shortened and had a shorter shoulder angle. Its 150-grain bullet with a muzzle velocity at 2,700 feet per second duplicated the performance that the.30/06 in those days. It is currently loaded by Remington Federal, Winchester, and Winchester with 150 and 180-grain bullets at respective speeds of 2,630 fps and 2,350 fps.

The.300 Savage has had 150 and 180 grain bullet weights. While the former works well with roundnose bullets, spitzers that are this weight occupy a lot more powder space in the case because they have longer bullets. Pointed bullets loaded in this cartridge are rated at 165 grains. This is the maximum weight that is practical. It is only necessary when the cartridge is being used on large game like elk, moose and big black bear. 150 grains is the ideal bulletweight for deer.
