I know very little about the .250 Savage cartridge, except that it was supposedly the cartridge that launched the high-velocity revolution. Originally called the .250-3000, it would launch an 87 grain bullet at 3000 fps. Heady stuff.
It's a nostalgic cartridge, surpassed by many, many more capable cartridges. It shoots a 100 grain hunting bullet at about 2800 fps, depending on a number of variables.
I can see no burning reason to yearn for a .250 Savage, except that Savage is offering one in the American Classic rifle. MSRP is about $779.00.
Damn. I want one.
