    Where to buy .250 Savage cartridges?

    Friend of mine recently acquired a Savage Model 99 chambered in the .250 Savage.

    Any ideas where one might be able to purchase some of these rounds?

    Thanks!

    If you can't find the ammo or cases you can always make it from 308 or243 brass by full length sizing and trimming the neck and possibly inside neck reaming.
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    And in fact, from the Wiki article I linked above:

    Charles Newton designed the 250-3000 Savage case to fit the popular Savage Model 99 lever-action rifle. As a prototype case: The .250 is based on a shortened, necked down .30-06 case.
    I would assume that there is probably a good amount of .30-06 brass to be found... However, friend who is looking is not a reloader at this point, so would love to find some for purchase.
