So, I finally found another Savage model 99 in 358 after stupidly selling one years back. Anyway this rifle is in great shape and a real shooter. The only problem is it seems to eject shells rather weakly. Not sure I trust it as a guide gun just yet. Anyone know anything about the ejectors on the 99. Are they reliable? Can it be replaced easily?? I used an old 300 sav as a kid and dont remember any problems. I also have a Winchester model 88 in 308 and am considering having it re barrelled to 338 federal. The 88 seems to have a much stronger ejector than the 99.
