.250 Savage
 
 

Its a fairly well known fact that the 250 Savage (also known as the 250-3000) was developed for Savage by Charles Newton. This early, 1900s cartridge was the first commercially available cartridge to achieve a velocity of 3,000 feet per second. The earliest development attempts, using a 100 grain bullet, fell somewhat short of this goal, so Savage asked Mr. Newton to reduce the weight of the bullet so they could get to that 3,000fps objective. This he did, settling on an 87 grain projectile. The marketing department at Savage decided to call it the 250-3000, so that they could emphasize their accomplishment in all their sales literature. Despite its low velocity compared to the .243 or 6mm, it is more reliable because of its heavier bullets. The .250 has almost no recoil, and is the number-one choice for a young shooter or someone who is highly recoil sensitive. Flat trajectory, outstanding accuracy and good killing power on anything up to and including deer are established characteristics of the 250 Savage. It was, and is, excellent on varmints through deer. In the past few years it has been edged out by the 257 Roberts and the new 6mm cartridges. 

This text is based on information from “Cartridges of the World”, Hodgdon reloading manual, the cartridge designer and/or own resources.
