I'm not positive, but I was told that was the parent case for the .22-250. If you can't find it you might be able to form it from that.

Good luck.

250 Savage is parent case of 22-250 not the other way around - you can neck up a 22-250 back to 25 caliber neck size - neck might be a little thin...

Remington and Winchester both make ammo with 100 grain bullet at 2800 fps the original loading for 3000 fps was 87 grain bullets.

Here's a nice fluff article bout the cartridge.

"250 Savage is parent case of 22-250 not the other way around "

That's what I was saying. Also Wiki says Sav 250 was made from shortened, and necked down 30.06. Wonder if it could also be made from 308.

Remington, HSM, and Load-X all make new ammo for this cartridge. It's a VERY effective cartridge on deer or similar game. Flat shooting, low recoil, and accurate.

It's very easy to load for this cartridge as the selection of bullets and powders is wide. The old Savage 99 rifle typically does not shoot well with bullets over 95 gr due to the slow rifling. We have had good results with the Remington 100gr PSP load in our 99, though. My wife's short-action Mauser has faster rifling and shoots very well with the Remington 115gr Premier bullets.

It's not that un-common really. Fills the same niche as 243 wcf - Dual Varmint and thin skinned game like deer.

If your having a tough time finding ammo locally - just order from internet.

Is it in a Savage 99 lever gun? Some of those are worth quite a lot of money.

last gun show I didn't see one Savage 99 under $595.

Some bolt action 250's are limited run guns and work some bucks as well.
Remington 700 did a limited run.

I have seen pics, attempting to assist the OP.

It is a 1920 Savage, original sights, uncut barrel, uncut stock, very nice from what I could see.
It has been drilled and tapped for a side mount scope, and the stock has been relieved on the left side for that.

I think the asking price is VERY reasonable.

OK, does it have swept handle or sticks out perpendicular to action?
What is the barrel length?

Savage Model 1920:

Savage manufactured the Model 1920 from 1920 to 1931 in .250-3000 Savage and .300 Savage calibers. The Model 1920 was a Mauser type bolt action rifle with a slightly angled back bolt (post-1925) to improve handling. The plain walnut stock had a pistol grip butt, a straight comb and a slender forend which tapered to a schabel tip. Post-1926 stocks were checkered and often had sling eyes. Originally Model 1920 rifles were offered with a choice of 22 or 24 inch round barrels but Savage dropped the 22 inch barrel version in 1926. Model 1920 production officially ceased in 1928 but assembly of parts on hand continued for a time after that.

The Model 1920 was one of the first rifles to use a cylindrical receiver made from barstock. This preceded Remington's introduction by 30 years. Interesting enough, the Savage also used a "washer-style" recoil lug between the barrel and the receiver, very similar to the Remington as well. The tang, which featured the safety, was riveted on to the receiver.

The 1920 was cataloged in 3 configurations:

Early 1920 in 250-3000 had a 22" featherweight barrel and open sights.
Early 1920 in 300 had a 24" featherweight barrel and open sights.
Later 20-26 in 250-3000 and 300 had a medium weight 24" barrel and a Lyman #54 bolt peep sight.

A 1920 in any configuration other than those cataloged would be a transition gun, a "clean up" gun, or a special order gun. A 1920 with an original 26" barrel would have to be a special order gun.

The book "The Bolt Action" by Stuart Otteson has an entire chapter on the Savage Model 20.
