Re: .300 Savage vs .300 Win Mag..?
The two cartridges are not in the same league at all. Firstly, the 300 Win Mag cartridge will not fit into the 300 Savage gun's chamber. Secondly, even if it would, the pressures for the 300 Win Mag are WAY, WAY too high for a gun of the design of the lever action Savage Model 99 or a Remington 760 chambered for the 300 Savage.
Only shoot the ammo stamped on the barrel of your gun in your gun. Anything else either will not fit or is dangerous to shoot in the gun. If you don't follow that rule then the gun and/or you will be harmed, significantly.
