I am always looking for my next 99 and found this 358 this morning. I have a 1957 99F in 358 and I love it. This 99 is up for grabs..........

Paid $225 for mine new in 1979. It amazes me what they bring now.

I like the 99F in .358 for forest hunting. I got mine in 1966. I have other rifles chambered for the round.

Steyr Daimler .358 Win.

Went to a gunshow today and saw a very nice 99H 250 and a 99T
250. 99T was drilled and tapped for a scope, and no rear sight,
but looked perfect everywhere else. Also saw a Steyr 257Roberts
on the same table, no 358s though.

A 358 brush gun is about 25% of what a same condition pre mil 358 is.

Was the Steyr nice? The Roberts isn't easy to find.

Looks remarkably like the one I bought in '87 for $275 NIB sitting in the "used" rack at a local dealer. It was born in '77 and hadn't sold so it was put with the used stuff. Came with all the tags, paperwork and box. It has since been hunted. Drops stuff DRT. Has to be the second best cartridge Savage ever chambered the 99 for after the .300 Savage.

The Steyr was in pretty nice shape, didnt handle it. It was
on the same table as the two 99s that I mentioned. I also saw
a Steyr in 7x57mm awhile back.
