Since I cannot clearly make out the receiver crest marking, except for "Herstal, Leige", I believe you have a sporterized (rebarreled, restocked, D/T'd for scope, altered bolt handle, etc, etc) 1889 Mauser - as exemplified by it's single-column external magazine, small receiver ring, and "cock-on-closing" features, in addition to not having the upgraded gas-handling & other safety features of the later 1898 Mauser (Mauser 98).

IIRC, they're usually referred to as Argentine Mausers, as Argentina gave Mauser a large contract for military rifles.

The 250 Savage is most likely at the top limit of what the action can handle.
