Took the wonderful 100+ year old Savage 99 to the range today and tested the three different kinds of .22 Hi Power ammo I had on hand:
Sellier & Bellot 70 gr soft point = 2622 fps
Imperial (Canadian) 70 gr soft point = 2705 fps
Norma 71 gr soft point = 2561 fps
It sure is a nice shooting little rifle. I thoroughly enjoy shooting this nice old Savage. It will never win any rifle accuracy awards, but it handles great and shoots softly. Very nice old rifle. Glad it's in my hands.
I'll get around to running some handloads over the chronograph some other day.
