Measured 1/2", center to center. The rifle will do better. I just can't hold that good. This was off some foam yoga blocks....

Fine shooting. I’m amazed how well 99’s shoot. I have a 358F that will rag out a hole with 180 TTSX.

Put the sock/comb riser on for a better cheek weld. The stock is a bit low for a scope.

That’s a good looking rifle and shoots good too.
I was looking on this site a while back reading all the information on the the model 99 ( just joined Friday). I hunted with a 99 in 250/3000 when I was a kid back in 1965 , my dad let my brother in law use it and I never saw it again. He later told me he sold it to one of his buddy’s for 50.00. I have wanted one ever since.
I bought one about a year ago in 308 Winchester it shoot pretty good has a good trigger and don’t kick much. I would like to know what year it was made . It’s a DL model series A serial number A869634. It’s in excellent shape and will be taking it hunting this coming season

Near as I can tell, the "A" prefix was used on the serial number from 1968 to 1972. So, it was made sometime in that range. Savage may be able to help narrow that down.

Nice rifle. I didn't realize they made EGs into the 70s
