a model 99 300 Savage! Dates to 1937 or 38. Beautiful weapon. Anyone have experience with one of these?

The young son of a hunting friend uses the same rifle, in the same caliber for Elk, in the heavy forests of western Washington. Bullet I don't know. Probably a Nosler Partition.

With that date it is a "Utica" gun. The Savage arms Co was started by John Savage in Utica NY and later moved to MA. You might want to get it appraised. If it is in good shape "Utica" guns in 300 Savage and 25-3000 tend to sell at auction for about $1400.

Adkbear, is right if the gun is original and 90% or better shape you might getting an appraisal.

There are many 99 savages out there which could be used as beater hunting rifles, but much fewer pristine 99's from the 30's.
