Shot a couple more of my oldtimers today. Both are chambered in an obscure cartridge that's rarely seen today. I shot up all my reloads but this is a factory 190gr Winchester Silvertip. This cartridge was a contemporary of the .30-30 Win but slightly more powerful. It shot the 190gr bullet the same velocity as the 170gr .30-30 bullet. The top one is an 1899H Featherweight made in 1914 with a 20" tapered barrel. The bottom one is a 1904 model 1899B with a 26" octagon barrel. Savage changed the name to Model 99 around 1920. I used to see 99's regularly in pawn/gun shops but rarely see one anymore.
