That would tend to be an absolutely KILLER price for a .284 with 4 boxes of ammunition.
The last .284 I saw was pushing $1k, and I've seen a few over $1k.

Thank ye for the effusive compliment.
Unfortunately, I have but one Savage 99, an EG made in 1936.
I remember the very first time I saw a picture of a 99, it was on the cover of American Rifleman magazine around 1975.
The graceful lines absolutely hooked me.
I have also become quite enamored with the .300 Savage cartridge. I own three rifles chambered in .300 Savage, the 99, a Remington 722, and a Remington 81.
But, a friend of mine is moving to California in a few weeks. He e-mailed me and told me that he was giving me his .300 Savage because he knows that I will appreciate it.
His asking price?
To be honest, I'd much rather he stay on the East coast.
