I own a 99c in 308. It use to be my grandpas rifle. It was given to him by is kids. That is the ONLY reason i still own it. It is a piece of crap as far as accuracy is concerned. I've tried factory and every combo of handloads and it throws bullets all over the place. 4 inches at 100 yards is the best group I could get but couldn't get that consistently. My dad said my grandpa hated the rifle because he couldn't ever hit anything with it. A note though, I love savage bolt actions.
