    It's been my opinion for some time now that a lever 30 30 is the ideal all around rifle. This is primarily because I'm not in to ARs or other military style rifles. Just personal preference. The 30 30 will serve as a good defense round and will kill deer sized game out to 100 yards without any trouble at all. I have 2 model 94s that are both adequately accurate to hunt with and i am particular about my hunting accuracy. They have Lots of firepower and are easy to tote around. The 30 30 is also very easy to reload and is easy on the shoulder. I'm a fan.

    Humm, We know that 22 is a caliber not a cartridge and that HP = Hollow Point so what could this possibaly mean? Has BRNO developed something totally new for 2020

    TYPO! :confused:

    Must be the 5.7x52R, AKA 22 Savage High Power.

    Surely no ones expects hand engraving on such an inexpensive firearm!!

    I chased it down: Savage 22 High Power....... made from Winchester .25-35 necked down to .227/228. Newton made them in 1912. No wonder I didn't know about it - even I am not that old.

    I may not be payng much for this rifle/shotgun , but there was an over priced one on a auction site that can't be named at the outrages price of $1,200.

    Note, I also have a choice of 6.5X55/12ga and 7X57/12ga
    Since I don't have a 22 Savage High Power , I think that is the one I will get.

    Nope, the 223 is too new for that rifle.

    I can tell from the closer picture gr posted that it's laser engraved most likely, it isn't hand engraving. It looks too good to be acid etched.

    If your as old as the 22 Savage HiPower….your old....like 108. gr, I knew what it was right off...:D

    Price is very appealing, 22hp not so much in the US, been a long time since it was readily available here.

    I'm not that old yet, but I may be a year or two older than you.:lol:

    I believe the rifle/shotgun is probably 1960s ? vintage because it is for the 2 3/4 inch shot shells.

    60's? Then I don't believe it's laser engraved or acid etched.

    You might be older than me, I don't know if we ever compared ages...have we?
