The .300 Savage is used for everything by folks in the Rocky Mtns. The .300 Savage was the parent of the .308. It is very easy to reform a .308 to a .300. Back some 50 years ago the 250-3000 Savage was considered to replace the .30 Caliber U.S. Military rounds. Too bad the Armalite M-15 was chambered in the 5.56 the bastard child of the failed old Remington .222 Mag. But hey Remington belonged to E.I. Dupont Co. the mega military contractor. See any connection here. We could have had a 6.35 driving 120 grs bullet at near 3,000 with modern powders.
