Hello All, thought I'd get more hits in this forum. Just got my dad's/grandfather's 1950 Model 99EG .250-3000 a couple a weeks ago; but didn't measure the twist rate until today. Unfortunately, it's a 1:14, so we're looking at the ability to only stabilize 87 grain loads. I know this to be true because dad would miss plenty of deer at 200+ yards with 100 and 120 grain Remington Core Lokt PSP ammo, and sighting in at 100 yards would be "all over the **** place", as he'd say. Now I know why. I also know why the Winchester 100 grain Super-X Silvertips would stabilize fairly well. They're shorter, and shaped basically like a round nose, plus that semi-radiused silvertip cap was made of lightweight aluminum. Others have told me this was the ONLY 100 grain bullet that they ever got to stabilize at 100 to 200 yards in the Savage .250-3000 with a 1:14 twist. Most likely for the exact reasons I've given. Since Winchester just ceased production of this cartridge (****!!!), does anyone know of a place that still might have a backstock of a perhaps three or four boxes of these cartridges? If not, has anyone used the 87 grain Hornady SP bullet for whitetails? I've had several emails from Washington state, to Nebraska, Texas, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania telling me that up to 125-150 yards, they'll do the job just fine with a well-placed vitals shot, since they expand and break up into 6 to 10 pieces, shredding through the vitals area. Trying to find a box of 87 grain loaded ammo for this rifle, even on a well-stocked gunsmith's shelf, is an absolute joke these days, and when grandpa owned it, they probably couldn't keep it in stock because they kept running out. Well, that's what happened after Winchester released the .243, sad... but true. Then, all the manufacturers slowed down production, until we got to where we are today, and that's not good for those of us that don't hand load our own ammo, and can't find what we need when we go shopping for ammo. Any insight you seasoned people can provide on these .250-3000 ammo avenues will be greatly appreciated.
