I'll never part with model 99 but my rifle of preference is a Parker-Hale .308 that mr. Hale made for me many years ago. He made a matched set of .308 and .270. The .270 was for my son.
I have no idea how many rounds have through my .308. It is/was all I use for deer, elk, antelope. I have shot 3/3 on deer this year and may shoot another time or two on a peak rut hunt in mid-January. For ther last few years, It gets shot maybe eight times a year. One shot each year to make sure the scope is still on and the rest at game.
I zero at 2" high at 100-yards and if I am having a good day health-wise, I can put three inside a half-dollar at 100. That is plenty good for me. It is a beautifull old gun that I have used, not babied and the scars on the stock prove it is no collector item. Mr. Hale did a fine job handpicking the wood and and building it. Some day, a few years off, Ihope, it will be my grandson's.
