A Savage 99 is an excellent rifle, the 300 Savage is an excellent cartridge, and if all the thing needs is a barrel, there are people who can rebarrel it.

You can buy a 30 caliber barrel blank, give the rifle and barrel to a gunsmith, and he can turn it down to the right size, chamber it, and install it on the receiver.

You can look at barrel blanks and prices. Your Savage is not a target rifle, but most custom barrels are target grade. You can look up Douglas, or ER Shaw. Call them up and tell them what you want, they will tell you the cost options.

The whole process of blank, chambering, bluing, will cost $300 to $400, but what the heck, you will have a Savage 99 with a new barrel! And it will be your Grandfather's.
If I'm not shooting, I'm reloading.
