I see Swift is bringing out a 225gr AF soon. That may be what the doctor ordered for that round. I used to have a Savage 99 in that chambering. Never shot anything with it, but I sure wish I still had it. JMO: Depending on what you are hunting, the 200 gr or 225 gr Barnes or 250 gr Swift or Noslers. Keep your shots to 200 yds or less and you should be OK. Not an eland round.
