.250 Savage


Is S.A.= Southern Ammunition Company, Route 1, Box 6B, Latta, SC 29565?
Also, what is 3000 in the headstamp?


It indicates the 3,000 fps velocity of the original loading (87 grain bullet.) Breaking 3,000 fps with a rifle round was a big selling point at the time of its introduction.


The SA is for Savage Arms Corportation. Vic
