.300 Savage
 
 

The 300 Savage was developed by Savage Arms Co. in 1920. The 300 Savage was intended as a cartridge that would work trough medium-length actions and deliver ballistics similar to the 30-06 Springfield. The original factory load used a 150-grain bullet and matched the original 30-06 sporting load at 2700 fps. It is not fully adequate for moose or brown bear, but it is a fine deer and elk cartridge. It is a better choice then the 30-30 for deer under any conditions. The 308 Winchester fulfills the same function as a short-action cartridge and has somewhat more power, so it has gradually replaced the 300 Savage.
