BTW: That Remington Model 81 is kind of a sleeper. They were very popular in the 50's as they were one of the most reliable autos on the market then. They had been around since 1906 (I think) as Model 8s.

Your 300 Savage is the best caliber in that rifle. While kind of heavy they hold pretty good and they are a fine woods rifle as they are as short as a 94 Winchester.

I see them for sale for around $350 in gun shows. They aren't very popular though.

They are kind of hard to load. You have to kind of squeeze the rounds one at a time down from the top, but I have heard that at one time there was an after market fix so that it's use a removable magazine. I've never seen one.

Keep it and shoot the thing. BTW: Frank Hammer used a Model 8 to kill Bonnie and Clyde. I think his was a 25 Remington, but I may be wrong. The other cops were using BARs as I recall.

The Win 70 should be listed. I have one 3XX in 30 GOVT 06...
