    If I am ever able to go on a wolf hunt in the future, would there be any reason not take my .300 Savage along? Also, how much damage do you think that cartridge would do to a wolf hide?

    You .300 Savage is almost like a .308Win, Damage will be Governed by the type ammo you going to use! JMO~ Don't use HP Ammo...PSP would be better!
    or use a .223 with FMJ.

      Taxidermists can patch uo most anything these days, don't worry about it.

          Your .300 Savage is a good choice, bit it reaches its peak of versatility with handloads and, I agree with Treestand, your bullet choice (factory or handload) will be as important as your bullet placement.

            It has plenty of energy for wolves. I'll be using Barnes 168g for my wolf hunting to avoid blowing a six inch exit wound. I did taxidermy and patched up some mighty big holes but that usually took sewing in hide patch from other pelts. I wouldn't make the taxidermist do that extra work if I didn't have to. Also, if you tan the hide, you don't want gnarly holes in the pelt. Good luck!
